Making a difference

Read Academy PTA supports the school’s ambition in creating future leaders of the community. We seek to support local charities who are doing work to help those less fortunate within our community. The school has partnered with local grass roots charities to provide hot meals to the homeless. Our families donate money or meals that we distribute both on the streets and within a shelter that we work alongside. This inter-faith project is something we are very proud of.

We are also fortunate enough to have a cluster of local businesses, organisations and individuals who donate, support and contribute to our events and join hands with us to support vocational and life skills education for our students.

Welcoming families

We have been able to organise a wide range of events for our school community. Some of our events are designed to get families acquainted with one another such as the “Read Family Mixer” where we welcome families new and existing back to school at the beginning of the academic year.

These events are enjoyed and remembered by our families. Our parent community actively fund raises and have contributed to improvements to library, playground equipment and adaptive equipment for those with additional needs.
