Parent Teachers Association

The main aim of the PTA is to raise funds for the school. The money is partly used to support the school in funding certain everyday items such as extra art materials for projects, toys and educational materials and transport to site visits. Additionally larger projects are funded such as a new classroom area; trim trail project and playground markings; interactive whiteboards in all classrooms and iPads for the children; eLearning book subscriptions and book corner upgrades; and upgrading the computer suite.

 

Our main way of raising money is through a series of social events for adults and children which include:

 

  • Quiz Night
  • Summer Fair
  • Second Hand Uniform Sales

 

The PTA also support and organise a number of projects such as:

 

  • School Disco
  • Class Christmas Parties
  • Bangers and Bingo
  • Movie Nights

 

Every parent at the school is a member of the PTA and there are lots of ways parents can get involved.

 

  • Everybody is welcome to attend the PTA meetings which are held once a term in the evening at the school.

 

  • Every class has representatives who are responsible for helping to organise class social events such as coffee mornings and evenings out, helping in the organising of PTA events and also helping the class teacher to arrange help in the class as and when required.

 

PTA events are organised (and paid for!) on their PTA Events website, which is a one-stop shop for everything to do with the PTA.

Match Funding

If you work for an organisation that has a match funding policy, any money you raise could be matched by your employer. Companies may match the fundraising total for an event, or for the stall that their employee is working on. Usually, the employee will need to supply them with a letter from the PTA detailing the date and nature of the event, together with the total raised.

 

Please see if your employer has a match funding scheme, or if they are willing to match fund any of the PTA events. If you can’t help right now, but you know the company you work for has a match funding policy, please let them know. This could be a really large source of income for the PTA.
