Who is the PTCA?



Did you know?

All parents are automatically members of the PTCA when your child joins
the school.  We encourage all parents to actively get involved even if you can only offer a small amount of time.  It is a great way to meet other
parents and to support your child's school. We meet on a regular basis, and welcome fresh ideas and additional support however small.

Why is the PTCA important?

The aim of the PTCA is to raise money in a fun and sociable way, to
provide the school with extra funding to spend on equipment and resources to enhance your child’s educational
experience and the school's facilities.

It provides the local community an opportunity to come together and
directly invest in your local school, and your children’s education. It also
provides an opportunity for parents from across the school to get to know each other and share some laughs at our events.



A welcome from the PTCA

Welcome to the Ridgeway PTCA website. Thanks for taking an interest in who we are and what we do. The PTCA is an integral part of the school community and so we think it’s important you know exactly who we are.

Treasurer and an unlimited number of Committee members. Take a look at the photo to see some of the current faces that make up the PTCA.
