The Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is an energetic group of parents and teachers who fund raise to support and enhance the pupil experience at Firrhill.

Over the years the PTA have raised thousands of pounds through school quiz nights, raffles, donations and the Christmas Market.

Last year £3200 was allocated to ECO projects, school teams’ sports kit, Holiday Head-start, lunchtime and afterschool clubs, extracurricular science, S6 newspaper, and art initiatives.

The PTA meets in the evening about 6 times a year – if you are enthusiastic, and bursting with fundraising ideas, or would just like to lend a hand, please come along – meetings are open to all – or contact us on
