Raising funds to help our children grow
Wembdon St George's PTA - Raising funds to help our children grow
The PTA (Parent Teacher Association) is an excellent way to bring together parents, teachers and the local community to raise money and to support the school.
The PTA provides an opportunity for everyone to work together towards a common goal. All parents, teachers and school staff can get involved even if they only have a small amount of time available. Any support is very much appreciated!
The PTA primarily raise funds to help the school provide resources and financial support towards class trips and special events for the children to enjoy. Meetings take place several times a year to plan events for children and parents that will help us raise much needed funds for the school. Recently, the PTA have helped fund the atlantic classroom, secret garden, environmental area and climbing frame. PTA funds have also been used to purchase laptops, nativity costumes and Christmas party food and hats! Coach costs for the Year 6 visit to Wells Cathedral is normally also funded by the PTA as are the Year 6 leaver photos.
So far this year we have donated £100 for each class towards school trips and a further £100 per class for books. We have also supported a visiting theatre group for EYFS.
