Our children today face a world where the shape of the future is not clear, a world where values, lifestyles, concepts and attitudes are rapidly changing. Therefore it is essential that parents and teachers work together to help our children grow into adults who can cope with the ever-changing world.
Research shows that children do better when families are involved in and understand the schools their children are attending, and when teachers value the views and contributions of parents and whanau. The PTA provides a means for parents and teachers to build a successful partnership, based on the best interests of the child. By getting involved in the work of our school PTA, parents, teachers and children benefit from the knowledge and insight shared. Through the PTA parents have an opportunity also to become involved in the wider decision-making process of the education system.
