Our PTA exists to raise money for our school – our children and we have an annual target of $50,000.
We don’t always obtain ample funding so our school needs extra to cover the basics like teacher aides, essential technologies, new sports kit etc. Our PTA currently runs FIVE big events throughout the year with some cool add on’s like sausage sizzle and Friday Freeze. These events fund the basics for our children. They also provide so much more for our school community in terms of networking and spirit. We are a little school with a big heart and for 2019 we want to increase our community network.
Traditionally our PTA has been a small group of parents who carry the workload through the year with a lot of enthusiasm and fun. For 2019 we changed our approach to benefit all. This new approach works exceptionally well in other schools so we are excited to implement it at St Ignatius.
What this means for you: This means that in 2019 you will have a greater opportunity to mix with your community. You will have more input and involvement.
- In 2019 each event will be allocated to a Year Group to run. The Year Groups will become Champions for their specified Event, tailor it and have fun in the process.
- Two – Three people per year will be Year Representatives – together you will coordinate your year.
- Your PTA will be there for support and guidance.

Volunteers: While the Year Groups are responsible for organising their particular event we will continue to call upon the school community for volunteers. This ensures everyone feels supported and allows for everyone to be involved. Many hands make light work and we are SO appreciative when everyone pitches in to help.
