Barnabas Oley PTA

Welcome to our PTA! Membership is free and very rewarding! We raise money through a variety of events over the year, and money raised is money spent.

Over the years we have supported many projects from the ambitious swimming pool and playground refurbishment, to the fundamentals such as new computers for the ICT suite and the library renovation. And that's not all, the PTA supports lots of fun stuff such as the school trips, visiting theatre companies, storytellers, educational toys, school leavers gifts and much more.

We really value your help and are always in need of volunteers to ensure our events get off the ground and run smoothly. So have a look at our upcoming events and if you feel you can help, please join us and get stuck in. You won't regret it! If you would like to get involved please contact the school office or leave a message for the PTA Chair. Thank you.
