St George’s PTA Newsletter 01/2009 New webshop: www.easyfundraising.org.uk/stgeorgeswirral Please do your online shopping through this site and you will support us at no extra cost to you. (See below for more information) Welcome to our first newsletter of 2009. We hope you all had a good Christmas break. 1. Our first PTA meeting of 2009 will take place on Wednesday 28th January at 7:45pm at top site. We will be discussing the following: Events for the forthcoming two terms. How to increase our fundraising. Allocating funds for projects in school. PLEASE FEEL WELCOME TO ATTEND. 2. A date for the ladies’ diaries: We will be holding a fashion show on Thursday 19th March at the Bronze Social Club. This is a fun event, giving you the opportunity to purchase High Street Chain clothing at a discounted price. Details to follow in the next newsletter. 3. Thank you to all those who have supported us by shopping through our webshop (address above). We have raised just over £100 in a couple of months which is fantastic! In particular insurance companies pay quite big commissions if you take out a policy. Eg Sheila’s Wheels have paid us £22.50 and Churchill £40. So if you are thinking of changing insurers and one of our companies gives you a quote that you like, then if you go through our webshop we will earn quite a large commission. At this time of year you may be considering booking your Easter/summer breaks. Please consider booking through our webshop. Please see overleaf for a list of insurance companies and travel companies who will pay us commission. (Also if you are registered then look in the free funds section to see how you can earn commission at no cost to you.)
