Your Committee



Whether you’re a regular on the school run or can only get to the playground occasionally, our committee members are here if you’d like a chat, want to ask a question or share your ideas. Here are some faces to put to names.

Ruth’s main role is to chair and guide committee meetings and to liaise between the committee, staff and parents about PTA events and fundraising opportunities.

“The most rewarding part of the job is agreeing how to spend the money we raise and then seeing the results of our fundraising being enjoyed by the children around the school. It's also really important to me that we have some fun together along the way!”
