The Milford School Parent Teachers Association (PTA) is a group of parents who come together to support the school in providing the best for all children.
The PTA movement provides a means for parents and the school to build a successful partnership, based on the best interests of our children. By getting involved in the work of your PTA, parents, teachers and children benefit from the knowledge and insight shared.
Some examples of PTA activities are:
- Second-hand uniform sales
- Parent get-togethers
The PTA meetings are usually held once a term in the school staffroom, on a Wednesday evening starting at 7pm. Everyone is welcome to attend these meetings, which are advertised in the schools weekly newsletter.
The 2018 dates are:
Term 1: – Wednesday March 7th
Term 2: – Wednesday June 6th
Term 3: – Wednesday August 1st
Term 4: – Wednesday October 24th

PTA Grants Requests – Over the years, the PTA has been responsible for contributing significant donations towards improving the well-being of the school community. To provide guidance for future donations we are inviting teachers, parents and children to submit a grant form (attached below) with your ideas. Once a completed grant form has been received, it will be reviewed and discussed at the next PTA grants meeting. So put your thinking caps on – help your PTA help you.
