WHO ARE WE?
We are a group of interested parents of students from across all year groups at Broadgreen International School, together with teachers and governors, who meet on a regular basis to discuss issues relating to our children's time at the school
WHAT IS OUR AIM?
WHAT DO WE DO?
Through open discussion we help to make the school aware of parental opinion on topics related to school which may cause concern, e.g. home learning, teaching & learning, behaviour, uniform, extra-curricular activities, school food, facilities, school environment etc
WHEN DO WE MEET?
Our first meeting of the academic year is in the November and then we meet during the third week of each school half term, so that's five times a year in all. Meetings times vary so that all parents have an opportunity to attend if they want. Meetings are held either mornings or early evenings and will be held over a cup of coffee in relaxed and friendly surroundings!

Broadgreen International School PTA
Our PTA is a group of parents, teachers and friends whose aim is to support the work of both the staff and pupils at the school. They meet approximately once every half term and plan events which will raise funds for the school. Recent functions have included bingo evenings at Christmas and Easter which have played to a ‘full house’, cabaret evenings, family quizzes and ‘Quingo’ evenings. All of the money is spent to improve the education of pupils at the school, either by making donations to departments within the school, supporting disabled pupils through the purchase of additional specialist equipment or by providing picnic benches to be enjoyed by all. The PTA also supports individual pupils who have represented the school on international trips, conferences abroad with the International Baccalaureate or who have represented Great Britain in international sports competitions
Our next PTA next meeting takes place on Monday 6th March 2017 at 7.00pm. All are welcome
