We are very fortunate to have a fantastic PTA that supports the school in a number of ways. The PTA organises social events for parents and the community to meet and enjoy. Over the years, members of the PTA have helped the school community in several ways. We give our time on a voluntary basis to support formal school and foundation events, organise social activities, and even co-ordinate fund-raising events in support of various projects which directly benefit the children.
Hillstone School has a lively, enthusiastic PTA but we always need new input! Coming along to meetings and helping out at PTA-organised events is an excellent way to support the school, the staff and your child. Meetings are held each half term – they are informal and informative and any parent or carer who wants to come along to one or all of the meetings is very welcome.
The PTA organises various events throughout the year: Haloween Night, Fireworks Night, Quiz Night, Christmas Fayre – we are always open to new ideas, both for fundraising and so that we can all connect with the school and with one another.
The PTA also provides funds for many other aspects of the school. Last year we made the following donations:
Indoor and Outdoor Tennis Tables
Team kits for Hillstone's competitive sports teams
Library books for all year groups
Lunchtime activities for the SEN Department
Christmas trees for the school
The success of the PTA relies on parental support. Why not play an active role in the things we do? You could help out at school concerts and plays by setting up and serving interval drinks. If you’re really keen, why not attend our PTA meetings where you can help to shape the things that we do …… you may be able to offer some personal skills and knowledge that could be helpful in achieving our goals. Keep checking the Forthcomming events Section for meeting dates.
