Why do we have a PTA?
We are fortunate to have a well-established PTA (Parent Teacher Association) at Abercarn Primary, working in partnership with the school. Over recent years the PTA. has raised many thousands of pounds, all of which has been spent on improving equipment and resources in and around the school itself which, in turn, has helped to enhance the learning experiences for all of our children in a variety of different ways. We’re also extremely conscious of the mission statement and ethos of APS, and respect and adhere to this when planning and organising events on behalf of the school.
However, it really isn’t all about fundraising! Far from it! Another key objective of the PTA. is to provide close links and networks between home and school, and to provide a channel for bringing staff, parents and children together socially. The common denominator is that all parties work tirelessly to enrich the “APS journey” for all of our youngsters!
All parents and members of the local community can get involved, and we’re always looking for extra helpers and volunteers! Parents automatically become members of our Association when they join our school, and any time that can be spared to assist or help out is always gratefully received and hugely appreciated.
