Glenealy School Parent Teacher Association (PTA)
The PTA exists to provide opportunity for parents and caregivers to get involved in the life of the school. The PTA organise a host of functions and events, which enable families to meet in a relaxed environment and enjoy time together. The PTA fundraising events rely on the goodwill of our community, which in turn helps to provide additional funding to the school to purchase special items and equipment that the school wouldn’t be able to fund itself. The school is very appreciative of all the efforts the PTA makes to help the school reach its goals and dreams and to bring our Glenealy families together to enjoy each other’s company.
All current members of the PTA have the opportunity to participate in aspects of PTA life whether on the Committee, as a class parent or assisting at one of our events or fundraising activities during the year.
Since the inception of the ESF Ordinance (2008), all parents are required to join their child’s school PTA. Glenealy School PTA has joined the central billing and collection of PTA membership fees organised by ESF. The ESF will invoice and collect the fees on each year on our behalf. The annual family membership is $600 and as a member you will be invited to all of our community events and activities.

The PTA Uniform Shop provides a key benefit to the parents and children of Glenealy School. This makes it easy to purchase the required uniform elements and ensures gains from sales are directed back into the school community. None of this would work without an outstanding team of volunteers who make the weekly commitment to work their shift in the shop and we would like to publicly thank our shop volunteers for all that they do.
If you have any queries about the uniform or volunteering in the shop, please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org
