Largs Academy has an extremely active PTA which we hope you will join.

The AGM is held in the school at the end of September each year and the main job at this meeting is to select a committee who then meet about once a month and who have responsibility for planning the calendar of PTA events for the session ahead.

The committee successfully raises a great deal of money through the popular ‘50/50’ Club. This is a monthly draw in which parents and staff stand to win up to £120.00 1st prize. All parents are eligible to join and application forms will be distributed at the P7 induction meetings.

The PTA provides valued assistance to the school in a number of ways which include fund raising and a number of school projects receive a great deal of support and assistance courtesy of the PTA. The PTA also provides school diaries for every child every year.

The main purpose of the PTA is however to foster and encourage contact between parents and teachers so that everyone who has an interest in the success of Largs Academy pupils shares a common purpose. The participation in the PTA by as many parents as possible will undoubtedly speed this process along and that
is why our membership and attendance at the AGM and at PTA functions is so much appreciated.

Notification of the AGM will be given separately to parents in early September and the PTA will normally carry announcements in Parents’ Newsletters.

In addition the PTA organises and supports up to 3 direct mailing programmes each year.
