A warm welcome to your PTA (Parent Teacher Association)
We'd like to introduce ourselves and tell you some key information about the PTA, how you can help us and what's in it for you.
Our group is called Hagley Primary School PTA and has been running for many years, it is run by a committee who are all volunteers; parents, carers and teachers alike.
The main function of our PTA is to support the school by raising as much money as we can to enhance, enrich and improve learning experiences for the children. We also provide those 'little extras' that make school memorable, such as school discos, tuck shops, Year 6 leavers gifts and classroom visits from Father Christmas.
We try to keep our events accessible for all, bringing the communities of school and home closer together, to meet new people and to have fun!
The money we raise is not only used to fund large projects such as the redevelopment of the top courts, it is also used to fund activities such as Bikeability and music lessons. We have helped to fund staff training, repainted and rebuilt the playground activity areas and provided many resources, such as iPads, that are used daily within the school.
We run many fundraising events throughout the school year; summer and Christmas fayres, quiz nights, fashion shows, competitions, raffles, themed nights, summer galas etc. but we are always trying to think of new ways to raise money for the school. Please do share your fundraising ideas with us.
We often send out requests for donations of uniform, bottles, cakes, chocolate, gifts, toys, teddy bears, books etc. So, don’t throw out that bottle of wine that’s been gathering dust - we’ll gladly take it off your hands! As the fayres approach we will send out a ‘fridge’ list that will have each collection date listed, don’t worry, we won’t let you forget!
But, it isn’t just your donations that we need, it’s your time, many hands make light work and we’re grateful for any help that if offered - we won’t ever say no!
We hope that this has given you a little insight into the work of the PTA and we look forward to meeting you.
