PTA


Welcome to all parents and families of the EGGS community. It was wonderful to see so many people attending the presentation, Survival
Tips for Parents of EGGS Students facilitated by Deputy Principal Sarah Dwan. The information shared by our speakers was very well received
and plenty of questions were asked and answered.
We look forward to meeting new parents and welcome everyone to attend any of our meetings or join our email distribution list. The next
PTA meeting is on Wednesday 25 May at 7.30pm where we will meet in the Boardroom located in the Admin block and then go for a tour
of the Library, Arts Block and Epsom House. Please remember, if you are unable to attend, then join our list of helpers by email as we really
appreciate it if parents can either give hands on help or make a salad or slice for upcoming events.

A useful tool for connecting with our school community is the PTA Facebook page. Please search: Epsom Girls Grammar PTA and Like the
page so you can easily access the latest news, photos, minutes and meeting times.
