Welcome to Holland House and Town Junior PTA page!
When your child joins the school you automatically become members of the PTA – so hello and welcome!
What is the PTA (Parent Teacher Association)?
This not an exclusive club - in fact we would really like you to help make our events a success. PTA Is made up of parents, carers and staff who volunteer to organise and run activities to raise funds for both school and create socialising opportunities for our families. Holland House and Town Junior have a joint PTA.
Who is in the PTA Committee?
The PTA have committee members – each year the members elect trustees who are legally responsible for ensuring the PTA is run correctly and the funds are spent appropriately. The trustees are part of the committee and include the Chair and Treasurer.
We are busy parents just like you and although our committee members have our formal titles we are really just a bunch of friendly mums and dads and carers that give up some spare time to organise fun events! We meet regularly to plan our fundraising events for our schools.

How you can help?
We love the get the parents and carers joining in and volunteer - no job is too big or too small! The PTA is always looking for helpers, class reps and committee members. There are lots of things you can do to help from folding raffle tickets, handing out flyers, running a stall, coming to meetings or taking on a more official role.
We need people of all abilities, of all drives, and from all backgrounds. If you cannot afford the time to help organising, then come and support our events instead!
