Parent Teacher Network

The Cockle Bay School Parent Teachers Network (PTN) is a group of parents who come together to support the school in providing the best for all children.

The PTN provides a means for parents and the school to build a successful partnership, based on the best interests of the children we share. By getting involved in the work of your PTN, parents, teachers and children benefit from the knowledge and insight shared.

Some examples of PTN activities are:

  • Fundraising

  • Discos

  • Second-hand uniform sales

  • Parent get-togethers

The PTN meetings are usually held once or twice a term in the school staffroom, on a Thursday evening starting at 7:30pm.

Everyone is welcome to attend these meetings, which are advertised in the schools fortnightly newsletter. We encourage at least one parent from every classroom to attend, to show support for the wonderful work undertaken by the PTN. So, please consider coming along, to at least one meeting each year.
