Low Port Primary boasts a very active Parent Teacher Association (PTA). Our objectives are to;
- Promote close cooperation between parents/carers and teachers
- Create opportunities for social interaction between parents/carers, students and teachers
- To raise funds to support the school both educationally and socially
We have a core committee consisting of Chair, Vice-Chair, Secretary, Treasurer and two Low Port Teachers.
We also have other members – some meeting-attending and others online who help on a regular basis.
- Chair – Rebecca Holmes
- Vice Chair – Helen Wallace
- Treasurer – Kirsty Pllu
- Secretary – Lucy Wilson
- School Uniforms – Alice Buckley and Ruth Watson
- Teachers – Elizabeth Ramsay and Vanessa McGilliard
- Organisation of social events both free and paid
- Organisation of fundraising activities
We meet on a bi-monthly basis at the school and also communicate in between meetings via email and an online forum.
All parents are welcome at our meetings! It is a great way to get involved in the school and meet other like-minded parents/carers. We can always benefit from more help on the PTA, whether you can commit time on a regular basis, can help on an ad hoc basis, or can contribute virtually.
