Introduction to The PTA
All Parents, Guardians & Staff are members of the PTA, and are welcome to any committee meetings.
This year's PTA AGM will be held on Monday 25th September at 7.30pm in the school hall. This will be after the EYFS Curriculum evening, so we hope that parents of new starters will be able to join us.
More details about the AGM shortly.
Wow what a busy year of fund raising we've had. With KS1 Disco, KS2 party, quiz and film nights, school uniform
sale, Christmas cards, bags to school, Easter cake sale, Easyfundraising donation, sports day refreshments and the
summer fete - we hope all Wanborough's children, parents, teachers and the wider community have enjoyed this
We set out to bring the community together to raise money for the children and have fun along the way. Judging by
all the smiling faces and empty bottles I hope you'll agree its been a fabulous year. If you have any feedback on the
events, ideas for future fund raising, comments on donations to the school or would like to join the PTA committee
or volunteer at a future event please get in touch at email@example.com
We are still adding up all the fete takings, awaiting money from online book and DVD sales and paying expenses - so
the final amount raised this year will be confirmed shortly. Fingers crossed for a fete fund raising of over £2,000 that
will take our total for this year to over £12,000.
This year the PTA has donated over £10,000 to the school - all thanks to your amazing support. This has provided a
climbing frame, reception play equipment, wall games, picnic bench games, laptops, comic subscriptions, specialist
reading software licences and programmable robots. A simply amazing contribution. We are also seeing if we can
arrange for the daily mile running/walking track to be installed over the summer ... watch out for more news.
On behalf of the PTA - I'd like to say a few thank yous if you'll indulge me ...
Firstly a MASSIVE THANK YOU to all the PTA Committee (along with their partners and children) for their huge
commitment of time, energy and enthusiasm - without their support we simply wouldn't be able to run so many
fund raising events. We welcomed new committee members this year and hope to keep and add more next year.
Thank you to all the parents, teachers and pupils who volunteered and supported the PTA events. Whether it be 10
mins to help clear up after an event, or moving hay bales, running a stall, donating a prize, baking a cake ... your help
is really appreciated.
Thank you to everyone who came to an event, bought a hot dog, paid a £1 to take home a teddy, had a glass of
Prossecco, bought Christmas cards, entered the raffle, had their face painted ... your support is amazing.
Thank you to Nationwide, Vodafone, Atwell Martin, Richard James and WH Smith's for their financial donations - a
real bonus. Plus the raffle prizes this year were brilliant - thank you to all the wonderful local firms who kindly
Finally - a special thank you to Karen and all the Walker family. Karen's eye for a bargain, online sales, poetry, sweet
stalls, passion for new fundraising ideas, eloquent writing of newsletters, drive and determination singularly
embodies the PTA. We will miss her and her dedication to the PTA as the girls head off to Ridgeway.
Good luck to the year 6 leavers we hope your hold fond memories of your time at Wanborough Primary School and
we wish everyone a relaxing and fun summer holiday. See you in September ... when the fun and fund raising starts
Thank you all for your continued support.
