About Us

Our PTA is made up of parents, with the support of the school staff. We love our kids and have them, their education and their wellbeing in mind in everything we do. The PTA is open to anyone who wishes to participate and we encourage you to join us. Sometimes that means coming to a meeting, sometimes that means joining us for an event, you don’t have to do it all or any if you can’t but know that we welcome you at any time!

Our Goal

To continue doing what we are doing. We strive to help our school with its needs, possibly some wants, we try to make things easier on the teachers and the staff, we try to make things fun for the kids and we raise money to keep filling those needs, providing wants, lighten the loads and have more fun.
Creating, and maintaining a successful budget is a tough job. Sometimes we can’t fit all of the wonderful things we have in mind or others tell us about, sometimes we can. It’s all a matter of each individual year and we try our very best to compliment the school and the education of our children the very best that we can.

Our Team

Donna Bruce

Co-Chair

Donna took on the position of Co-Chair along with Kelly in September 2017 after 2 years as Vice-Chair. She has a daughter in Year 5 and another who is due to start Pixies in 2020! Donna spends a lot of time handling FOPHS Business and is lead organiser of the annual Fireworks event. When she isn’t busy creating event runsheets or asking for helpers Donna works in the travel industry and enjoys breaks away with her family.

Kelly Tomlinson
Co-Chair

Kelly is in her first year in the position of Co-Chair, having been on the PTA since 2014. She has 2 boys who are in Year 4 and Year 3. Kelly works as an operations manager but thankfully only school hours which frees her up to help with events during the week. Kelly takes the lead in catering our events and does a lot of event preparation behind the scenes. She finds that the best thing about FOPHS is all the lovely people she’s met being part of it.

 


Elle Alderman
Secretary and Vice-Chair

Elle joined the PTA in 2017 after volunteering to help at events and seeing how much the children enjoy them and then took on the positions of Secretary and Vice-Chair this year. Her 2 children are in Year 5 and Year 1 and they both very much enjoy helping at the events with her. Elle is jointly responsible for the school discos, looks after the PTA emails and general admin and helps co-ordinate events. She works full time as a Development Supervisor for a finance company and does love an excel spreadsheet which is proving to be very useful in these roles!
