PTA - Parent Teacher Association
A very warm welcome to the Laurance Haines School Parent Teacher Association (PTA)
What is the PTA?
The LHS PTA is a school-based organisation of all parents and staff and is best known for raising money through events, for the Friends of Laurance Haines School Charity Number 1129337.
The events we hold include discos, Winter and Summer Fairs and Mother’s Day presents, all of which the children thoroughly enjoy being a part of, and the money raised is then used by the School to buy those little extras, or provide further experiences, that can help further enrich your child’s time at school, such as the Lego wall, football tables for the playground, birthday books for Nursery to Year 2 children, the playground water fountain or a trip to the Christmas Pantomime.
The events also often provide an opportunity for parents, staff and pupils to get together which results in us all getting to know each other that little bit better.
Please see our Newsletter below for an idea of the PTA fundraising during the last school year.
How is the PTA organised?
At the start of the new school year (September, or as soon as possible) the PTA holds its Annual General Meeting (AGM). At this meeting, a Committee is elected to run the PTA. The LHS PTA consists of a Chair, Vice-Chair, a Treasurer, a Secretary and ordinary committee members. Please click this link to see what the roles entail:
The current core Committee are:
Chair - Steph Lennox
Vice-Chair - Emma Morrissey
Secretary - Becky Davis
Treasurer - Nidhi Jajodia
As well as the core Committee, Ordinary Committee Members are any parent who would like to get involved in planning and running events without having a formal Committee role. Please see below how to get in touch with the core Committee if you would like to take an active role.
