WHAT HAS THE MONEY CHURCH PREEN PTA RAISED BEEN SPENT ON?
- £1000 is being donated to the school for new educational classroom reading books and to increase the library options.
- We are purchasing 8 sun parasols for the picnic benches at £49.99 each.
- We pay £100 per term (£300 per school year) for each class to take it in turns to get their choice of book boxsets.
- We will fund an ice cream van, (or ice creams if this isn’t possible!)
- We fund teaching aids, for example, Spell Zone and Phonics Play
Obviously, we haven’t been in a position to discuss projects we had planned, but we are planning on moving forward now, so watch this space. There will be more exciting news to share soon!
Staff are in the process of carrying out audits on musical instruments and books with a view to purchasing these items to aid learning. PTA will either fund all or part of these requirements. (Don’t worry we promise the kids won’t come home with recorders!!)
We would love for money to be spent on enjoyable activities for the children, so we are in discussions on how and what we can do for the children before the end of the school year.
FUTURE FUNDRAISING AND HOW CAN YOU HELP?
Autumn term - Barrow of booze! Always a winner. Donate a bottle (or 2!) of something, buy a raffle ticket, and you could be the winner of a whole wheelbarrow of booze and the wheelbarrow!
Autumn term – Rainbow hamper – each class will be allocated a colour, donate an item of that colour. Buy a raffle ticket to be in with a chance of winning it all
Pre-loved school uniform shop
PTA will be opening a pre-loved school uniform shop. Donate the clothes your children have outgrown and when you are in need of more school uniforms, email the admin office to see if what you are after is in stock. Branded uniform will be £1.50. Shoes / Trainers £2. Everything else £1. So, fill our shelves and start donating!
Fancy an after-school treat? How about a nice sticky doughnut? We will be trialling boxed doughnuts in the autumn term – watch this space!!
We really appreciate your support. If you would like to attend a PTA meeting, the next one will be held on Thursday 9th September 2021 at 7pm, in either the school hall or Church Preen Village Hall. It would be lovely to see some new and old faces.
Or if you have any fundraising or spending ideas, please share them. We don’t bite, honest!
Thank you for your time.
Church Preen PTA Committee.
