Welcome to the Mandeville PTA however we prefer to call ourselves 'Friends at Mandeville' as the term PTA tends to scare people.  All parents and carers are automatically members and we meet every Friday, straight after drop off for coffee in the activity suite. It is a great way to meet new people, have a cup of coffee or tea and a chat. We are always looking for more willing helpers!



Our aim is to create an inclusive friendly community of parents and carers who work together to provide fun and exciting events that raise money for Mandeville. We welcome our new committee Emma Murphy (Chair), Kate Quamina (Secretary), Kelly Drew (Treasurer) and Sharon Linney (Assistant Treasurer). Our  next formal meeting to finalise details for the Film Night and discuss the Autumn Fair will be on Wednesday 10th October at 7pm. We would be delighted to have as many enthusiastic parents and carers there as possible to help us plan, bring new ideas and raise as much money as we can. Ultimately, the money we raise goes back into the school, whether it is the school environment, resources or directly to your child’s development.


The Year Ahead!
