Events

Recent events organised by the PTA include:

  • The Halloween Disco. Attended by most of the schools children, this event was a great opportunity for the children to dress up and have a fun evening. At this event we raised over £200
  • Christmas Fair. Although attendance was lower this year than in prior years, we still had a great turnout and participation at the stalls on offer including
    • Coffee & Cake stall
    • Santa’s Grotto
    • Beanbag Snowman
    • Bottle Tombola
    • Chocolate Tombola
    • Turkey rolls and popcorn
    • Guess a Present
  • Tea-towels. This year every child in the school drew a picture of themselves (and the Teachers) which we printed onto tea-towels. They proved really popular and we sold over 250.
  • Wrapping paper. Organized by the staff, every child designed their own wrapping paper which was printed and sold at the Christmas fair. These were really great and used to wrap lots of presents !
  • Overall for the Christmas events we raised a fantastic £1500
  • Valentines Disco. Great attendance and a really good evening with DJ, food, glowsticks and tuck-shop. This event raised over £400!

Planned events:

We are always looking for ideas and the PTA meets regularly to review ideas for fun activities that the Children love and help raise money for the school. Please do get in touch if you have any ideas.

  • The Summer fair is always a great event and this year will be no exception, planning is already underway but there will be other exciting things happening in the interim !
