About the PTA (Parent, Teacher Association) / Friends of Hamstel


All parents and carers of children at the Hamstel Schools and all teachers, are automatically members of the PTA. We also welcome and encourage extended family members, non-teaching staff, and people from the local community with close links to the school to get involved.

The school elected core members:

What do we do?


We organise a variety of events throughout the year such as a Summer Fayre, Mother’s Day Sale, Raffles and Father’s Day Sale. We aim for our events to be affordable and fun for our children and families and help to raise money for the schools.


We have general meetings every term as well as other meetings over the year to plan our activities. All PTA members are welcome to come along.


Why do we do it?


Our PTA / Friends of Hamstel is a registered charity which raises funds for the schools. Our fundraising contributes towards any projects or new equipment the schools may need to support or enhance the children’s education and day to day school life.
