The PTA has a vital role in raising funds for small and large projects for the school. Fundraising is undertaken in the various ways:
- Senior School textbook sales, stationery sales in the junior and senior schools, the golf day and any profits from PTA functions. These funds are used for larger scale projects not ordinarily covered by the school’s capital budget. One of our largest projects to date has been to install floodlights for the Astroturf hockey field. In 2013 we will start building change rooms for the learn to swim pool among other projects.
- Project Club Membership is voluntary. The current fee is R100 per term, and this is charged to your school account. Project Club members participate in a draw for one of three cash prizes of R1500 per term.
- MySchool Card Membership is also voluntary. The MySchool card is a painless method of raising revenue for the school through the nationwide network of MySchool supported retailers.Both the Project Club and MySchool card enable the PTA to fund more immediate, smaller projects like the heaters in Founders’ Hall and selected classrooms, the installation of electronic scoreboards for Waterpolo and Hockey matches and the refurbishment of the Senior School locker rooms.
