Message for retiring Chair Amy Hill
The PTA would like to thank Amy for her time, effort and patience during her time on the committee, in particularly when she was Chair. Her efforts have meant that we have been able to raise lots of funds for the school and provide activities for the children to Enjoy. We will miss her being on the committee but know that she will continue to support us as always.
We run as a charity and all proceeds go directly to purchase additional equipment for the children and we assist towards activities or trips.
All members including teachers give their time freely to organise, set up and run various events throughout the school year.
Events we have organised: Football tournament & Summer Fete, Quiz nights, Pig & Frog racing nights, Christmas Fayre, School disco’s, and much more.
Some of the more recent benefits to the children have been: New Reading Scheme, the fire engine and outside play equipment, sand pit, water table, batteries for cameras and laptops. We are also helping to fund more play equipment for the new playground.
All parents are welcome to attend PTA meetings and we are always happy to receive new members and idea’s for fundraising.
Please join us.
Huge thanks to the PTA who kindly bought new trays for our outside area after our old one split, even our resourcefulness of putting buckets underneath failed after the split grew too big with gushing waterfalls. Our thanks go to Mr Burdiss, who kindly spend his free time putting all the pieces together after we failed. The children have really enjoyed exploring what happens to dry sand when it becomes wet.
