The majority of parents in most schools are either unable or unwilling to attend PTA meetings, but that does not mean that they are uninterested in helping.
- The more information that is available to engage them, the more chance they’ll begin to participate.
- The better the opportunity to volunteer for smaller tasks, the lower the barrier to volunteering.
- The easier it is to organise events, the more likely they are to volunteer to manage one.
The benefits to the children become clearer, the parents feel a sense of pride in participation, the community grows stronger and the PTA funds boom as a result. It’s a virtuous circle!
