The PTA undertakes a program of fundraising events and initiatives annually to fund school resources and activities. The PTA fundraising targets & spend are chosen in consultation with the principal and BoM. If you wish to make any particular suggestions please contact us.

Our bottom line target is to ensure that at least 90% of funds raised by the PTA each year will be directly allocated to resources or activities for the Shellybanks children. In advance of each AGM, we will let you know the bottom line target we actually achieved. Please see our PTA Funding Policy to ensure transparency on how we spend your money. Our past PTA annual accounts are available here.

Current fundraising objectives

PTA running costs, teacher appreciation and event consumables (‘RTE’)

The PTA needs a small amount of funds itself e.g. for insurance and membership of the National Primary Council. We also aim to give a token gesture of appreciation at the end of each school year to our great teachers who devote their care and energy tirelessly to look after your little ones (the teachers at Shellybanks have a no gift policy). Finally, we hope to provide you with a tea or coffee or consumable at one of the school many events.

Upcoming fundraising events and initiatives

Capital Program: We need to raise substantial funds for our school building in a capital program launching early 2017; more details to follow.
