PTA (Parent / Teacher Association)

Our Organisation

Welcome to your Parent Teacher Association Ltd (PTA) at Quarry Bay School. All Parents of children attending ESF schools are members of their PTA, so we warmly welcome you and hope you will find participating a worthwhile experience for yourself and your children.

There are 15 members on the QBS PTA Executive Committee, which comprises of parents, teachers and the LMT (Leadership Management Team). Mrs Fiona Bishop (parent) is the current Chairperson. We look forward to meeting you personally one day, but in the meantime please login to “Gateway” (TG) and browse to the “Documents>School Documents” section, and you will find our PTA Committee Members List in the PTA Section. Your Committee is elected annually at the AGM, which is held in October. Nomination forms for anyone wishing to join the committee can be found under the “PTA AGM” folder in the “School Documents” section, as mentioned above.

Purpose & Focus

We are all passionate about helping QBS to maintain and develop its position as a student-centred and innovative school for all of our children. We achieve this thru regular meetings held twice a term, discussing educational matters, organizing events which raise funds for the school and local charities, as well as provide opportunities for the QBS community to spend time together. You may go to the “PTA Documents” on TG to view our “Memorandum of Articles of Association” and our ‘Minutes of the Meetings’.

Members of the PTA Executive Committee also sit on the School Council and the Committee of Parents (Compar).

Achievements, Contributions & Donations

We are proud to be a successful PTA, which really does make a difference to our children’s experience at QBS. A few examples of events we’ve held include our ever-popular Disco, Christmas Carols Concert & Fair, Readathon, Chess Competition, Pizza and Popcorn Sales. Funding given to school by the PTA includes: Laptops for Classrooms, Books for the Learning Centre and Classrooms, Funds for refurbishment of Year 6 Rooftop, Funding for Entrack (Energy Tracking System), Funding for Parent Lunches and Workshops, and our largest contribution of donation is for the Renovation/Refurbishment of the Learning Centre and Learning Spaces – which will take approximately 3 years to complete (HK$2.5Million donation over a three year period).

You can view a complete list of our recent achievements, and by logging into Qoodle with your child’s login you can visit the School Gallery and view some of our past and current event photos (they are tagged with PTA for easy sorting and viewing).

Your Role

Our work is never done. We continue with dedication and enthusiasm to complete our major target of fulfilling our pledged donation of a balance of HK$1Million over a period of two years to school for the renovation/refurbishment project, currently being carried out at school. (The PTA has successfully donated HK$1.5Million over the past year and half.)

In order to achieve this, we need your help. Your participation in events will benefit your family in more ways than just raising funds for your children’s school. It will enable you to make new friends, get to know the staff and teachers better, and show your children that joining in community events has positive outcome for everyone.
