Dunottar School PTA is a registered charity and an essential and valued part of our whole school community.   All current parents are automatically members of the Association.  

Our aims are:

  • to link the school with the wider community through social events for our families, friends and beyond to enjoy
  • to fundraise to support our children’s learning journey by funding additional resources for the school

All money raised contributes towards school equipment, trips and opportunities for your children.

Previous events

Club Tropicana! the PTA social event on Saturday 16th March was a fully themed night that celebrated all the great music from the 80’s complete with a fabulous George Michael tribute act. Matt King sang all the popular Wham! songs as well as George’s hits and got everyone dancing. Lucy’s Tiki Bar served Mojitos and Cuba Libres and a photo booth, complete with trees, flamingos, monkeys and various bits of fun paraphernalia added to the entertainment with everyone having a playful picture taken. The event raised nearly £700 for the Wellbeing Area which is fantastic!
