What it means to be on the PTA
Our PTA is extremely important to us, as parents play a key role in the development of our school's social activities. It helps parents and teachers work together for the best possible outcomes for the school community. This is achieved through parents:
- helping new and prospective parents learn about our school
- assisting with learning activities and trips
- helping new families settle in through an inclusive social network
- generating ideas for school and community social events
- then helping organise them!
- organising workshops which promote engagement with education
We hold a Coffee Morning every term. All parents are invited to join the Principal to discuss and learn more about specific school topics, activities, and initiatives. It's a great way to learn more about what's going on at school and to have your say on the topics that matter to you.
Here are some of the ways you can get involved:
assisting with reading, or even exercise;
helping prepare for special events like Christmas, Pink Day, or our annual Social Event!
Liaising between teachers and parents as a Class Representative;
Off-site activities for parents and students;
It's been proven that having parents actively involved in their child’s school life has a lasting, positive effect on their child's development and learning. It also helps build a sense of community for ex-pats and around the school. This is essential for everyone to feel happy and rooted in their new life.
So being actively involved in the PTA means that you can not only help your child, and other children flourish at school, but you can get the most out of life in Mallorca. Because hey, who doesn’t want to enjoy the best local restaurants!
