Parent, Teacher, Student Association (P.T.S.A.) Information

Who we are

The King's High School P.T.S.A. committee includes parents/caregivers of current students, a teacher representative and two student representatives. We organize fundraising, apply for grants and host social occasions at the request of the school.

Our meetings

The PTSA meets on the second Wednesday of every month. Meetings alternate between being held from 7-8pm at the school library, or from 6pm at Robbies Bistro and Bar on Macandrew Road (followed by dinner at 7pm).

Attending PTSA meetings is a great way of finding out what's happening at your son's school.  These meetings are often attended by a student representative, a teacher representative and the Deputy Rector.

The meetings are an opportunity for parents to hear first hand from the staff and student representatives about what is happening in the school. It is also an opportunity to discuss and have input into ways the P.T.S.A. can support the school, to ask questions of staff and student representatives and to get to know other parents who are also keen to make a contribution to their son’s learning at King’s.

Meeting dates

Every second Wednesday of the Month except in School holidays

Our Role, Funds and Fundraising

Each year families are asked to make a donation to the P.T.S.A. This is a significant part of our income and together with money raised from other fundraising events and grant applications, it allows us to make purchases which benefit the school as a whole.
Another integral part of the P.T.S.A.'s role is to assist at school functions such as the Open Night, Sports Awards and Prize-Giving. The P.T.S.A. members make a significant contribution to running the social aspects of these events and our support is always much appreciated by the school.

New Members

We always welcome new members, either on the committee to assist with our various projects. Anyone who has a son at the school is welcome to attend our meetings and it is up to each individual to contribute to our projects according to time and ability.

Our funding round this year provided monies funds towards the following:

P.T.S.A. School Support in 2014

We had two fundraisers this year:

  • The 'Pink Bag' collection in July
  • The first King's Karnival - Fair and Games in September 
    We were amazed at the huge support we received from our business community and parents (see details below).

Both proved to be a great success and the funds were used for:

  • The "Pink Bag' money raised will now ensure the new scoreboard for the gymnasium.
  • The funds we raised through the King's Karnival will be used to purchase a classroom set of I Pads to be used during class time, under the supervision of a teacher.
  • We also support the school with two Scholarships and a substantial P.T.S.A. prize every year.
