At most schools all parents/carers and teachers are automatically members of the PTA.
Most PTAs hold their annual general meeting in September, at the start of the school year. At this meeting a committee is elected to run the PTA – usually consisting of a chair, a vice-chair, a treasurer, a secretary and ordinary committee members. These ordinary members include at least one, and often two, parents from each class as ‘class reps‘. Their job is to pass on information from the PTA to other parents in their child’s class.
PTA committees usually meet once a term and set up smaller working groups to organise individual events.
