Welcome to Kennedy School PTA Ltd!
All families at Kennedy are members of our PTA and the school community. The PTA is an integral part of life at Kennedy School, and is committed to working in close partnership with parents and the school.
To promote close co-operation between parents and teachers for the general welfare of the pupils;
To provide opportunities for discussion on general education matters;
To provide or assist in providing educational aids, materials and extra-curricular activities;
To improve the educational environment for the benefit of pupils;
To receive donations and otherwise raise funds for the conduct of the Association and its work;
To carry out such other activities as the members of the Association may decide in furtherance of the Association’s charitable aim.
In accordance with the ESF Ordinance, it is compulsory for all parents to be members of the PTA of their child’s school. Fees are due at the start of the academic year. We hope that all of our parents will join us in working to support the school for the benefit of all our students.
Membership invoices will be sent to parents around the end of August / early September.
About the Committee:
The PTA Committee is elected annually at our AGM. We look for committed parents who wish to take a lead in our activities. The PTA Committee is made up of:
12 parents, 3 teachers and the School Principal
All Kennedy School students benefit from the PTA’s activities, and your participation is vital to the ongoing enhancement of your child’s education. We look forward to, and appreciate, your continued support. All contributions to the PTA are most welcome and parents can do this in different ways. Some give their time freely, others make monetary donations, some donate raffle prizes while others help out as and when they can. (When help is needed for specific events this will be noted in the weekly newsletter). All are very important and benefit the students of Kennedy School.
