The Baradene Parent Teacher Association is an active group of willing parents prepared to get stuck in.  Its primary function is to promote community spirit among the school staff, Board of Trustees and parents – and have some fun along the way!

Equally important is its fundraising role.  Each year Baradene parents fundraise to support a wide variety of projects for the school and in these challenging economic times, community support becomes even more important. 

To achieve this we need you!

The PTA is a valuable link to your daughters’ school and will help you to forge relationships with other parents and teachers in the community. There’s the old saying ‘it takes a village to raise a child’ – join the Baradene PTA and make it part of your village.
