DATE OF NEXT PTA MEETING: Tuesday 14th January, 7:00pm Meadow Staffroom.
The PTA is a group of parent and staff volunteers who organise fundraising activities for the school. The PTA aims to provide the 'extras' that the school is unable to finance from the normal budgets, through events and activities that are fun for the children and their families.
In the past we have contributed to many school projects including playground markings, a new kitchen, the nature area and the purchase of books for the new library. We also fund many smaller items. Ideas for things that would benefit the children are always welcome!
Since the beginning of the school year the PTA has organised a New Parents Coffee Morning/second hand uniform sale, Discos for children in Yr 2-6, the production of personalised Christmas Cards for all the children, the sale of apples from the school grounds, and supported the school Fireworks Night by organising the refreshments and bling stall. All of these events/projects have been well received and in total have raised over £3000 for the school. This is an amazing achievement and we would like to thank all parents, staff and helpers for their support. As the school is currently undergoing a consultation period for new buildings to accommodate increasing pupils numbers, funding requests from the school for large projects are currently on hold until it is clear where PTA money could best be used to benefit the children at Bridge Farm. We will keep you updated as we know everyone likes to see where their kindly donated money is going!
If you would like to help with fund-raising activities, in any way at all, then please consider coming along to one of our committee meetings. There will be no pressure to get involved, but you may like to find out more about what we're doing.
At committee meetings we plan what events we want to run, who can organise them and who will help, and how we will spend the money that has been raised.
It's an opportunity to meet new people and make new friends. You can also have the satisfaction of knowing that you are directly benefiting your child's learning environment.
You can contact the PTA via email. firstname.lastname@example.org
We send out a newsletter each term to keep you up to date, and we have a meeting every term to discuss our next events - the dates for the coming year are listed below, so why not come along.
