Parent Teacher Support Group

The role of the Parent Teacher Support Group (PTSG) is to plan and organise fundraising activities; a vital role as it is necessary to supplement the Ministry grant. Fundraising is essential to ensure that our students have ready access to the best available resources and technology.
