16 May 2019 – PTA Update on funds spent in school
Thank you to everyone who supports the PTA by donating time, resources, help and taking part in our events.
You’ll no doubt have seen that the long-awaited Pirate Ship and playground project has been completed. The newly installed large pirate is the final of three (previous ones installed last year in foundation and Y1 outdoor play areas). This project has been over two years in the making, funded by the PTA and supported by countless numbers of you to raise that money. We’re very pleased to see the children enjoying the new equipment.
Earlier this month the children in F2 got to experience a week with “Living Eggs” and met 8 beautiful little chicks. This activity fits into their Growth and Change topics and is fully funded by the PTA.
At our committee meeting on 1st May the PTA agreed to fully fund the upcoming School Council Dining Room project and also golden time resources for each class in KS1 and KS2.
If you’re interested in fundraising for the PTA or joining the committee to organise events, we’d love to hear from you. Please do get in touch. Email firstname.lastname@example.org
