The PTA raises money for the school, offers a bus service and a uniform shop, and provides a way for parents to have a voice in the way the school is run and to make our views known to the ESF. Some of the other PTA activities include organising socials, helping to run the annual School Fair, and the annual PTA BBQ. In addition small groups of volunteers run Ice Cream days and the committee oversees the administration of two book clubs enabling parents to buy books at a discount. There are, as you can see from this sample, a wide range of PTA-organized activities. Some raise money for the school, some are educational, some are fun, some are social – and some are all of the above.
Membership is now compulsory in all ESF schools for all parents, and costs HK$350 per annum. The PTA committee is elected at the AGM in September and serves for one school year. The committee meets once a month.
The PTA supports the learning of your children and runs a number of events, including the School Fair, Multicultural Day, Annual BBQ Teacher Appreciation Lunch, Hot Dog days, Ice Cream days, Australian Bush Dance, IMAX Theatre show, Volunteer Appreciation and Book Clubs.
