Kirk Ella St Andrews PTA
Kirk Ella St Andrews CP School has a PTA that has been an integral part of the school community for many years. In its time the PTA has raised thousands of pounds, which has been spent on equipment and resources to enhance our children’s educational experience and the school’s facilities above and beyond the provisions of school budgets.
This has included:
- New computers
- Ice creams for theatre trips
- Sports kits
- Playtime equipment etc.
- Whole class keyboards and glockenspiels
All parents and members of the school community are encouraged to get involved, even if you only have a small amount of time available. If you would like to help out on the committee or with organising and running events, have any ideas how the PTA could ‘do more’ or just want more information about the PTA please contact the school reception and they will hand your details to Mr Church.
This year the money will be spent on the following:
- Class set of iPads
- Data logging equipment
- New football kit
- Payment for the Panto in school
- More playground equipment
- Renovation of the playground
The events that we put every year include:
- A Bake Sale
- Sponsored Walk
- Christmas Fair
- Father’s Day Stall
- Mother’s Day Stall
- Sweet stall
Any other suggestions?
All the events which occur require volunteers and over the years, as their children have moved to another school we have had a number of parents leave and we need others to take their place to continue this valuable work. If you are able to give some time in your week towards the PTA please can you think about it as it will be very much appreciated.
Without willing volunteers these events will not happen and the much needed finance would not be available.
We meet on Tuesdays at 2pm every half term (more if there is a special event coming up). This helps with picking up after school and we can accommodate younger children during the meeting if you think that might be a barrier.
You can be a regular member involved in organisation or you might be able to volunteer on the day of events.
We are always open to new ideas and thoughts so please come along!
