Parish Church School Parent Teacher Association
Parish Church School Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is an active group that meets 3 to 4 times per year to organise regular fund raising activities to benefit the children of the school. All parents are invited to be involved on the committee and new parents are always very welcome to come join us or help out with any of the events. We really do need new members so that we always get new ideas.
The PTA organise a variety of events, the Christmas Bazaar, Easter Fair, school discos, fun evenings and refreshments at events, such as, for the school Sports Day.
The main purpose of the PTA is to raise funds to provide resources which help to give our children an excellent school experience. Parents and teachers discuss a wish list at at their meetings on how best to use the funds raised. They then prioritise what they feel is best to spend the funds on, taking into consideration what the children would like. For example, in recent recent years the PTA has contributed over £2000 for a wireless sound system for the school hall, CD players for each classroom, books, large outdoor play equipment, a ball shooter, guinea pigs, a new cooker and lots more.
Many thanks to our fabulous PTA who organised a very festive Christmas Bazaar this year. There were many highlights including the bouncy castle; face painting; Santa's grotto; Tempest photography; Christmas crafts; the cake stall and bacon butties.
