Our objective is to raise as much money as possible in order to provide the school with the extras normal funding would not cover. Throughout the year we hold various events which range from the Christmas Fair, to a cake stall outside boots, to fashion shows, pamper evenings and the summer fair. We would like all of you to get involved in whatever way you can. The PTA is a non profit charity and all of the money raised is for the benefit of every single child in school.
Bearing in mind that St. Mary’s is a small school we have managed over the past few years to raise a fantastic amount of money. This would not have been possible without the help and support of the parents here. This money has paid for the purchase and installation of the wooden play equipment on the meadow, the bike/scooter pods, new hall curtains and recently the outside classroom. It also helps to pay for the smaller things such as ice lollies on sports day and sports kits. At present we are trying to raise monies for additional laptops and computer equipment.
You are automatically a member of the PTA if your child attends St. Mary’s and this is a fantastic opportunity for you to find out more about us, meet new parents and put forward any ideas you may have.
We are a friendly group whose children are in all the years of the school. We try to meet just once every half term as we appreciate that everyone leads busy lives. You can get involved as much or as little as you wish; even if you only attend the meetings that would be a great help to us. We try and alternate meetings between day time and early evening to give everyone a chance to attend a meeting at some time.
We look forward to meeting you all.
The PTA Committee.
