We would like to thank the parents for continuing to support the PTA. A new committee has been formed and a number of parents have already volunteered to be general helpers. We would like to thank you for your continued support which enriches the children's experience of school.
The new committee for the PTA (2016/17) are:
Co-Chairs: Rose Lewis & Lucy Battle
Treasurer: Tania Amado Fish
Secretary: Kim Lankshear
The school is fortunate to have an active and energetic parent association who raise funds and support school events.
We are very keen to involve more parents, and other family members, in running the Association. You are very welcome to come along to a committee meeting, or talk to any of the Committee members with your ideas or questions. If joining the committee isn’t for you but you would still like to be involved then you could be added to our ‘helpers list’ where we can call on you for help with larger events such as the Christmas or Summer Fayres.
We appreciate spare time is precious and parents who are involved with the Association are a mixture of working and non-working parents who help out when other commitments allow. Over the year we also ask for your help at specific events such as setting up for the Christmas Fayre, helping at the School Disco, baking cakes or bringing family and friends to the Summer Fayre.
Another way you can help is by using the www.schoolfunds.co.uk web site when buying anything on the internet. Just enter the schools details on the website and a small contribution will be made to our funds at no cost to yourself. Why not set www.schoolfunds.co.uk as your internet home page !!
We know some of you in the past have helped boost the funds raised for the school by offering matched funding for our Summer & Christmas Fayre’s through your place of work. This is a great way to assist our fundraising efforts and is always much appreciated, so if you think you can help us with this please contact a committee member and we can discuss in greater detail.
A big thank you to all who have purchased books from our Scholastic Book Catalogues in the academic year 2010 /2011.
We are delighted to report that between us we have purchased a massive £1422.27 in books, earning the school, with bonus commission, a grand total of £399 of vouchers. The school is able to spend these vouchers on valuable education resources for our children.
In total, this academic year the school has used £368 of vouchers to buy:
We hope to continue and build on the success of this scheme in the new academic year. Thank you once again and the Association look forward to your continued support come September.
