MESSAGE FROM THE P.T.A. CHAIR
The St. Gabriel's School Parent Teacher Association has long been an important part of the St. Gabriel's Family. As Chair I am proud that I can assist in the development of our Children by leading the PTA in support of the School.
We on the PTA work very hard to foster a healthy relationship between the Parents, Teachers, School and Board of Management, passing key information among all parties and keeping everyone up to date on current events.
Fundraising is the other key role of the PTA. Our main fund raiser is the annual PTA fair which takes place every October. This fair is a LOT of work and we are grateful for the assistance from all Teachers, Parents, Aunties, Uncles, Grandparents, Sponsors, the list goes on and on. Our students and many others from around the Island look forward to this event, and the funds raised are critical for the projects which the PTA funds on behalf of the School.
The PTA also undertakes other smaller fundraisers during the year, many of which are also important from a social perspective. These include Sports Day Canteens, the Movie Night, the Hike, the end of year Dance and the Raffle.
All members of the PTA, with the support of the entire school community, throw all our efforts into these events so that we can proudly show off the amazing contributions we make to the School. PTA funds cover the mortgage on the wonderful Anne Johnson Auditorium each year, and other recent improvements include Astro Turf in the playground areas, new desks in the Top Infants classes, and refurbishment of the Auditorium bathrooms. We look forward to undertaking more projects in the year to come.
I hope to see many of you at our General Meetings throughout the year so that you can keep abreast of what the PTA is working on, and so that you can lend your voices to the discussions. We are here to advocate for the families of St. Gabriel’s School and are always happy to hear from you. In between meetings you are always welcome to reach out to our wonderful Parent Representatives, or to chat with any of the PTA Executive Members.
I look forward to working with you all in the year ahead to make St. Gabriel’s even more amazing than it already is!
Warmest regards, Jenna Skeete PTA Chair.
