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 that primarily organises events to raise money for the school to buy those little extras that can help further enrich your child’s experience whilst at school such as the school discos, the Lego wall, football tables for the playground, birthday books for Nursery to Year 2 children or a trip to the Pantomime.  Fundraising 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. 

As a parent of a child who attends the School, you are automatically a member of the PTA.  There is also a core PTA Committee of parents who, although not experts in fundraising and have busy family lives, are committed to giving some of their time to help organise these fundraising events.   

Your Committee members are: 

Please feel free to stop me in the playground to chat 

Steph Lennox, Chair                   

Lisa Cooper, Vice-Chair    /    Becky Davis, Secretary    /    Christine Armstrong, Treasurer
