What is the PTA ?

At Bishop Challoner Parent and Teacher Association (PTA) we aim to:

  • Encourage closer links between home and school.
  • Support the school by fundraising and holding social events.  Funds raised by the PTA help provide the school with additional equipment/ resources for staff and students to enjoy.

How is the PTA  Organised?

  • Parents/carers and staff of Bishop Challoner School are automatically members of the PTA and everyone is welcome to attend PTA meetings or to help out whenever they are able.
  • The PTA committee is made up of a Chairperson, Treasurer, Secretary and Ordinary members.
  • Meetings are held every 4-6 weeks. New members and ideas are always welcome.

Activities the PTA have Organised

  • Trip to JJ’s for Year 7 & 8 Students
  • Film Night for Year 9 Students
  • Refreshments for Presentation Evenings
  • Refreshments for Mock Interview Evening as part of the school’s Careers programme

Items Funded by the PTA

  • Camping equipment for Duke of Edinburgh Award
  • Artist to work with students who produced an Art installation commemorating the school’s 40th Anniversary
  • Crosses for the Pope Francis Wing

We welcome new ideas and suggestions, please, please help support the PTA and the school in anyway you can.

All help is greatly appreciated!
