Welcome to your Dunottar School PTA website!
Dunottar School PTA (registered charity) is for all parents (past & present) and is an essential and valued part of our whole school community. All our current parents are automatically members of the Parent Teacher Association.
We were established many moons ago and as the school has grown and developed so too have we. We have two guiding principles that underpin why we are here:
C for Community -
The PTA serves to link the school with the wider community through social events for our families, friends and beyond, to enjoy
F for Fundraising -
Fun isn’t in fundraising for nothing! We really believe in the FUN bit! The PTA helps support the learning journey our children are on and helps raise money to fund resources that the school may need but does not have
Annually the money raised contributes towards such things as trips, prizes …….
Dunottar School PTA is run entirely by current parent volunteers who come together as a team and give up a huge amount of time for the greater good of our school. We work together with our year group parent representatives (class reps) to help maintain effective communication between the school and parents/children and get together once each half term at a PTA meeting. We also play a very important part in welcoming new families into our school.
Each of our year groups have parent representatives (class reps) who become involved in PTA meetings and help the PTA team to organise worthwhile and fun activities to foster our sense of community.
Please take a look round this website at past events, who we all are and our calendar of dates. We use Facebook, Classlist and Twitter to keep everyone up to date with key dates and events so please do make sure you are registered/following us.
It goes without saying, that the PTA relies on parental and teacher support! We all lead very busy lives and finding extra time for all of us is difficult, but we strongly believe that it is important to support our school. Whether it be offering to be a Class Rep for a year, becoming a member of the PTA and attending meetings or just offering to help out with various events (either on the day or the planning and prepping) - all this helps foster our sense of community and hopefully makes for a better school, happier children and happier parents. (…. happy children … great resources/opportunities … ).
If you have any immediate questions, ideas, suggestion, queries ….. please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to getting to know you all.
