Anyone is welcome to attend the Fairfield Intermediate Parent Teacher Association meetings (PTA). The dates for these are placed on the school Facebook Page and are held @ 7.00 pm in the School Staffroom.
Parking is available in the school car park off Kensington Place.
Being a member of the PTA is a great way to meet new people and to find out first-hand what is happening within our school. The PTA runs two or three fundraisers during the year and only requires a small investment of time (no, really!). Don’t worry if you can’t attend meetings regularly, we can still use your help. All welcome!
WHAT IS THE PTA?
The PTA (Parents’ and Teachers’ Association) is a group of parents who want the best for the school and its students. The PTA meets monthly in term time at 7.00 pm in the school staffroom to discuss school events and fundraising ideas.
WHO ARE THE MEMBERS OF THE PTA?
Parents and caregivers of children enrolled at Fairfield Intermediate. Our current Chairperson is Dawn Percy who can be contacted through the school (855 9718).
WHAT DOES THE PTA DO?
Fundraise - The PTA fundraises to buy items for the school not funded within the school budget, as suggested by staff and students. Each year the PTA raises and donates over $15,000 to the school for the purchase of items such as class sports equipment, digital cameras, a wireless microphones, boxed reader sets and magazines for the library as well contributing to supporting the AIMS games team and sponsoring the school Citizenship Awards.
Fundraising events include an Easter Raffle, selling the Entertainment Book, selling goodies at the Production nights, an annual Garage Sale and a Christmas Raffle.
Liaise - We are the link between students, their families and the school. At PTA meetings a Board of Trustees' representative is present as well as the Principal and a Deputy Principal. The School Management and BOT representative keep us informed of current and future events in the school and are happy to answer questions on any aspects of the school. So it’s a great way to find out what is going on at Fairfield Intermediate!
HOW MUCH TIME DOES IT TAKE TO BE ON THE PTA?
If you can spare a couple of hours per term that would be great. You don’t need to be able to attend the monthly meetings but it’s useful to come when you can. If you can’t attend any meetings we hope you are able to help with fundraising events instead, as many hands make light work!
Come along, meet some new parents and contribute to making your child’s school a better one!
