The Wellington School Parent Teacher Association (WSPTA) is led by a committee of parents and teachers from all stages of the school – nursery, primary and senior. As a Wellington parent, you are automatically a member of the WSPTA and as a committee we welcome your suggestions and feedback.
What We Do
Throughout the year, the PTA hold a number of fund-raising events. In 2018 these included Halloween discos, a Junior School ‘onesie’ night, a race night and the hugely popular Summer and Christmas Concerts. The PTA also raise funds through the organisation of Junior School Christmas cards and the running of the Uniform thrift shop. Contact details for the Thrift Shop can be found near the end of this page.
All money raised by the PTA goes directly back in to the school to benefit the pupils and the support of all parents is greatly appreciated. In recent months, the PTA has contributed towards the purchase of new football nets, table tennis tables, speakers, cameras, recycling bins and music stands.
In 2019, the PTA are fundraising to support the Drumley Playground Development Project as well as working with the Music Department to upgrade lighting and sound equipment. Committee members give generously of their time throughout the year and are always happy to hear from anyone who would be keen to help or put forward fundraising ideas.
Provide a voice for Parents
The PTA endeavours to be an effective link between the school and parents. While any issues relating specifically to your individual child would be most appropriately addressed by contacting the school directly, you are welcome to raise any wider school issues with the PTA by getting in touch.
In 2018, matters discussed included school uniform suppliers and uniform availability, the infant playground area and communication with Ayr Rugby Club coaches. The School Management Team has acted on the points raised and values open communication with the PTA
