									The PTA continue to work tirelessly to raise vital funds for the “ Fun” things in school!

Where does the money go?

    So far this school year we have given:
     £500 to Mr Rothman to help fund the community garden project!! This an exciting new innovation within
        the school where we are going to get the older generation to pass on life skills to the younger generation – a
        real “hands on” learning!
     £500 to Mr Edge for a class set of Ukelele so that ALL children in the school get the opportunity to play
        different instruments.
     Water proof trousers for Foundation! You all know YOUR children LOVE to play outdoors in the wet and it
        can get very stuffy in those classrooms so we have given each foundation class 10 pairs for waterproof
        trousers so the children can splash about outside to their hearts content!

In the past 2years we have also purchased Disco Equipment for DJ Debs – the children really enjoy the discos as well
as the extra treats they get at Christmas and the end of Summer Term – and a BBQ which has been used for the
Christmas Fayre, DamersFest and the Leavers BBQ. Both of these items have saved us the cost of hiring them for
each event which means we raise more money in the long run.

Over the past few years the PTA has provided the Children with the fun playground equipment as well as book bags
for every new Foundation child each year. We will continue to do this.

We also help out with lots of non fundraising events too – Fair Trade Café, Bedtime Story night, the Royal Wedding &
sports day.

We are always looking for new faces to join our PTA – if you would like to come along to the next meeting please
