Who we are and what we do!

METNS is proud to boast a community where pupils, parents and staff collaborate and work together for the better of our children. A high level of parental involvement is a key feature of our school, which makes it a very special place for us all. 

Did you know that every parent/guardian who has a child in the school is automatically on the Parents and Teachers Association (PTA)? The PTA Committee is a group of enthusiastic, energetic people who want to help make METNS the best it can be. Ideally, the committee is made up of approximately 10-15 parents/guardians and a staff representative, who meet up once a month and get involved in a wide range of activities in the school. This includes organising Grandparents Day, Monthly Coffee Mornings, The Winter Fair, ECAs, Workshops for Parents/Guardians and for Children, The Book Fair, Fundraising Events, Social Nights, Movie Night, Culture Night, METNS Big Picnic and much, much more as well as supporting the school in every way it can!

Parents/guardians are nominated at the annual METNS AGM. By this stage, each class has nominated a class representative at the start of the school year, who is the main point of contact with the P.T.A liaison. The PTA Chair liaises regularly with our principal and Chair of BOM to assist with various initiatives and help build general communication within the school community.


The PTA Committee is a great way to get involved in school activities and ultimately to support all of our children together. Membership is open to all parents and guardians at METNS. PTA are always looking for new members, if you are interested or would like to get involved even in a small way with any of the below, please email
