Riccarton High School PTA

The purpose of the PTA is to create a close association between parents and the school.

The main functions of the PTA are:

  • to be a representative group of parents for consultation with the school
  • to act as a sounding board for any changes in the school
  • to keep the Principal aware of parents’ perspectives on school matters
  • interacting with the parent community and staff by serving tea and coffee at parent evenings, report evenings etc (as requested by the school)
  • bringing the school community together at social events by organising various activities
  • running the second-hand uniform sale days

There is very little focus on fundraising – we rather like to consider the PTA activities as ‘fun’ raising events.
