Pretoria Parent Association

Get ready to rally! The Rand Rally is coming!! Start collecting your spare change from around the house!  Did you know the PA spends about R600 per student each year on our events? Help us raise the money we need to keep our fun events going! We will have a competition by grade level.  The prizes for the top grades will include an ice cream party, as well as fun things your teachers will have to do at the April assembly! Let's rally!

The PA needs you!  Please consider volunteering your time for a position as an officer next year. It is fun and really doesn't take as much time as you think it does!  Openings: President, Vice President, Treasurer, Events Coordinator, Service Learning Coordinator. Questions?
