PTA News – 25th January 2019
After a great first term to this school year, we are already busy planning our events and activities for both children and parents alike for this term, to continue our fundraising for additional new Thinkpads and accessories for the children to develop their IT skills in school. So, here are some dates for your diary:
Wider Fundraising Ideas and Activities
We are also looking at ways to fundraise for the school from the wider community. We are planning to host another coffee morning at St. Nicholas Church Hall in the summer term, which we did for the first time last year. We are also investigating available grants and donations from local businesses who support the community and we will keep you up to date with any developments in these areas. Plus, of course, if you work for a company which offers matched funding for any school events, that continues to be an excellent way of boosting our fundraising total.
If you work for an organisation with a match funding programme, we would be really grateful
for your support. Last year match funding enabled us to boost our fundraising total by over
20%, so it really does make a difference to the projects we can support for the children.

ARE YOU INTERESTED IN JOINING THE PTA?
All our committee and officer roles will be re-elected at the AGM, so if you are interested in any of the roles outlined below, please email firstname.lastname@example.org . Nominations can be made before or at the AGM and if more than one candidate stands for a role, there will be a vote during the meeting.
If you haven’t yet signed up to Classlist, please do. It’s a great tool for you to easily connect with other parents across the school and, going forwards, will be the first place that the PTA announce events and updates.
