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 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.
2019 dates are:
Term 1: Wednesday 6 March
Term 2: Wednesday 1st May and Wednesday 12th June
Term 3: Wednesday 31st July and Wednesday 4th September
Term 4: Wednesday 23rd October and Wednesday 27th November

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 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. Contact the Secretary on firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Shore to Shore – This annual fun run will take place on Sunday 31 March. The PTA will provide sausages in our Milford School Gazebo after the event. All children participating will also receive a certificate.
