Parent Teacher Association

Here at Henriette Le Forestier we have a thriving PTA involving parents, staff, the community and pupils in a wide range of activities aimed at supporting our School, both financially and in terms of social, educational and entertainment benefits.

Our PTA is open to all parents, staff and pupils, including former pupils, and we hope for constructive input from members of our community also.

The AGM takes place in September every year to elect the committee followed by five meetings throughout the year. The first is to set the agenda for the year followed by meetings prior to large events.
