Introduction to The PTA
All Parents, Guardians & Staff are members of the PTA, and are welcome to any committee meetings. Next PTA meeting:
Monday 26th November, 7.30pm @ The Harrow
We have got our fundraising year off to a great start in the first term, with 2 big contributions. The PTA were ready for Christmas as soon as the children started the new school year. In September, the children were getting into the Christmas spirit - busily designing their beautiful cards. All orders have now been placed and delivered, and it has to be said, the quality of the designs this year was brilliant. £705
profit was made on these, which was £194
up on last year!
The beginning of November saw us hold our Reception/KS1 disco. It was touch and go whether it would go ahead, with a power cut throughout the area an hour or so before the start. With 48 sausages having already been cooked by one of our PTA members, they were starting to think they would be eating sausages for breakfast, lunch and dinner over the next few months! Luckily, power was restored shortly before the disco started, which was a relief to all parents who had some very upset little children.
Following a quick set up, we opened the doors to watch children tear around the dance floor, have their faces painted and fill themselves up on sweets. The bar was also extremely busy through the evening. It was a very successful night with a total amount raised of £825.14
. We want to thank all volunteers who helped set up and spent time on the stalls.
Charitable Donations Co-Ordination
We are still desperately seeking volunteers to explore how we can use Gift Aid and corporate donation programmes to boost fund-raising efforts. The school has a large list of additional funding requirements, which the PTA hope to be able to financially support. However, our small PTA Committee needs more assistance to enable us to rise to this challenge. If you able to give up some time to help explore these different fund-raising avenues, then please contact us at the below e-mail address.

We continue to plug the Easyfundraising service as it is such a quick and simple way to raise money. Please register at www.easyfundraising.org.uk/invite/UXYA85

Please remember to follow us on our new Facebook page ‘Wanborough Primary PTA’. We regularly post new events or updates on fundraising activities and so if you can’t wait until the next school newsletter to see what we have been up to, please visit us here.
We would like to thank everyone at the school for your continued support over the past year and we hope next year will bring many more exciting fundraising activities to help make a difference to all our children.
