Apologies: Mr Marczinski, Mrs Hemsley, Ms Holliday were engaged in "Meet the Teacher" discussions whilst the meeting took place.
Mrs. Scott recorded the minutes of the meeting
This year our AGM was held in conjunction with a "Meet the Teacher" evening. All parents were given the opportunity to listen to their child's teacher giving a short presentation detailing the syllabus that will be used for this school year. The presentations were staggered allowing those parents with more than one child to attend more than one congregation.
presentation parents were invited to join members of the PTA in the
sports hall for refreshments and to discuss what is involved in being a
member of the PTA. Visitors were also shown a Powerpoint Presentation
detailing the events organized and funds raised in the last school year.
The following people showed an interest in becoming members and it was decided that they should receive a copy of the AGM Minutes to keep them informed of future events:
Mrs Bagley, Mrs Pike, Helen Little, Andrea Little, Louise Sutton, Mieke Sooi, Evelyn Longstaff, Kim Wright, Jacqui Jelly, Christine Wilson,
Andrea Shervinton, Claire Peaker, Anne Falcon, Simon McDonald and Karen Murray.
Powerpoint Presentation detailing events and expenditure over the last
year was displayed in the Sports Hall. Thank you to Amy Scott for
putting this together.
