About the PTA

Hotham Primary School is proud to support an active PTA (Parent Teacher Association) which plays a vital role in both raising additional funds for the school and organising social functions for both parents and children.  We also provide an additional and valuable means of communication between the parents and teaching staff within the school. All pupils, parents and staff are automatically members of the PTA for the duration of their time at Hotham.
