On behalf of the children, parents and staff of our school the Governors would like to say a HUGE thankyou to our PTA who have worked so hard and enthusiastically to enrich our school both financially and socially.
The PTA is a fantastic organisation that is committed to raising money to improve the quality of provision for the children at Aldingbourne School. The PTA is extremely well organised and very efficient. The committee meets once every half term on a Tuesday night at 7.15pm. The meetings usually last one hour and are always good fun and extremely productive!
The PTA and the school work very closely together and the contributions made by the PTA to the school are invaluable. In spite of the ‘credit crunch’ the PTA have raised almost £10,000 this year with which they have purchased the most exciting and enormous bouldering rock to enhance our playground facilities.
Also this year they have bought……
- Infant Xmas presents
- Tickets for the Junior Pantomime Trip
- Xmas trees for all the classrooms and for the hall
- Dictionaries for our year 6 leavers
- Materials for our annual painting day
- Contributed towards cost of coaches for school trips
The PTA organises a variety of different events such as...
- Children’s Discos
- Film Fridays every month
- A Christmas Fete
- A Fright Night
- An Easter Eggstravaganza
- Summer Fete
- Family ‘Chill Out’ BBQ
We would like to say a personal thankyou to ALL the committee members and parent representatives of our successful PTA who worked so hard over the last year.
The PTA is a wonderful organisation that makes an invaluable contribution to the school. If you are interested in joining the PTA come to the AGM in September and find out more!
