Parent Teacher Association (PTA)

The PTA is the fundraising arm of the Parent Council, made up of parent volunteers and staff who organise fundraising activities to provide the school with the extra items for the benefit of all pupils. Only the school’s basic resource needs are funded by Scottish Borders Council, and as such, there are many resources and activities that these funds do not cover. For example, in recent years, the PTA have provided funding for an outdoor classroom, outdoor sandpits, interactive whiteboards for classrooms, audio equipment, iPads, transport for trips, the annual library software subscription and financial subsidy for Christmas parties as well as gifts for new P1s and departing P7s. A summary of our recent fundraising and how the money has been spent is available on the website.


There are currently up to 40 PTA members, who have a range of time they are able to commit. Position holders currently include:

Chair – Susan Brown

Secretary – Angela Dobie

Joint Treasurers – Connie Flynn/Claire Oliver


The PTA are always delighted to welcome new people, either as permanent members or for help at specific events. If you would like to volunteer to join the PTA or add yourself to the mailing list of volunteers for specific events, please email us at:
