PTA

PTA stands for Parents and Teachers Association. It is presently run by parents of pupils at St Luke’s. All parents become members of the group when their children join the School. We meet regularly, at various venues, to discuss current issues and forthcoming events.

The PTA organises and runs a number of events, throughout the academic year, ranging from ‘Family Nights’ through to the Summer Fair. All proceeds raised at these functions are used to directly benefit the children of St Luke’s School.

How can you help?

We welcome any help in any form! We recognise that parents have many commitments and may be able to help in different ways.
