Do you want to be involved in your child’s school? Do you want to really make a difference?

THEN WE NEED YOU!
Your Parent Teachers Association (PTA) is looking for a new Chairperson and that person could be you!
Unfortunately at the AGM held on Thursday 21st September, 2017, a new committee could not be formed as there was a lack of interest for the elected Chair & Vice Chair positions available. Our current Chairperson resigned from her one year term of office. Many thanks to last years PTA, it was a truly wonderful year of fundraising which raised £7,500, Funds received from the PTA contributed to our Forest School which I’m sure you and your children will agree is a truly wonderful addition to our school grounds.
A new Chairperson is now urgently sought, to lead the PTA with their continued fundraising efforts which help make improvements to the school and your child/children’s education and learning experience.
The Chairperson’s role involves co-ordinating the various fundraising events throughout the year and chairing the monthly PTA meetings. The term of office is for a minimum of one year and a maximum of two years. The PTA is made up of four elected roles Chairperson, Vice Chairperson, Secretary and Treasurer plus voting members, there are currently vacancies for all mentioned roles. There are also a number of parents who cannot commit to being members of the PTA but who provide invaluable support by volunteering for particular events.
Unfortunately if these roles are not fulfilled then the following events will no longer take place.
Children’s Designed Christmas Cards * Christmas & Summer Fair * Christmas Pantomime & Party * Christmas Visit & Selection Box Gift from Santa * 2nd Hand Uniform Sales * Bags to School *
Fun Friday Events * Film Night * Pizza Making * Easter Eggs * Disco’s * Freeze Pop Fridays *
We would therefore encourage all parents to become members of the PTA and work together to enhance our school community, be it through fundraising or providing enjoyable events for our children and their families to take part in. Becoming an active member is a good way to get really involved with your child’s school and make a difference.
If you would like to be considered for the role of Chairperson or if you just want learn more about the PTA and the role it plays within our school community please come along to the EGM this evening (Tuesday 17th October) at 7.00pm in the school hall.
A new committee will need to be voted in at this meeting. which has been arranged in accordance with our PTA constitution which is adopted following guidelines from the National Confederation of Parent Teacher Associations.
