The school management starts the meeting by informing the attendees about what’s on at the school. Sometimes they give some advance information and they may also ask the attendees’ opinion in some specific issues. The PTA Representatives are given the opportunity to raise questions and give feedback from their year group’s guardians to the school management. The PTA Board continues the meeting to discuss current topics and plan upcoming events.
