A very warm welcome from Downsview's Parent Teacher Association
Every parent with children at the school automatically become a member. We aim to support the teachers in their role to provide a stimulating environment and enhance the children's learning experience by fundraising and organising social events. The money raised helps to pay for extra school equipment and activities. Our PTA is a great way to meet people and play an active role in your child's schooling experience. It doesn't require a huge amount of time, a regular commitment or any special training.
Our Committee members are:
Core team members: Sasha and Catherine
Staff representative: Nikki Gray, Assistant Head Teacher
