** A BIG THANK YOU **
Thank you to everyone who has supported the PTA over the last year, we hope you have had fun participating in the events and raising lots of money for our kids.
We are delighted to have raised enough over the past 12 months to give the school over £12,000 to invest in an array of amazing playground equipment, which will be used by our children on a daily basis (things such as creative drawing trail, games tables, permanent goals and netball posts, den building equipment, music instruments, staging for role-play etc).
A big thank you goes to Mrs Meyer and the school council who have worked so hard on this project to bring life back into the playground and understand what children need from the area of play both for development and community.
We don’t want to spoil the surprise so there is a sneak peek image below of some of the exciting and fun items that are on their way and how pleased the children will be to play with these.
With your support, the PTA raised over £17,000 last year and this is how we did it.
Wine Tasting: £1,340
Christmas Fair: £2,650
Christmas Cards: £510
Quiz Night: £1,120

Movie Night: £1,370
Fun Food Fridays: £700
Donations/Grants: £4,000 (£3,000 last year, £1,000 this year)

As you know, we continue to support the school and provide the extras that our children need so we are now working hard to raise about £15,000 for new PCs in the ICT suite. We know this is within our reach and we look forward to working with you to create further fun events and lasting memories over the coming year.
June 2016 ... The grand total so far is just over £16,500!
A huge thank you for all your support!

The money has allowed us to give each year group a themed experience day or visit. We have spent £1000 on new chairs for the IT Suite and are saving to invest in new PCs. We are funding the playground revamp and contributing to kit for the new pre-school site.
