What is the PTA?
Swanland Primary School PTA is a registered Charity and we are a group of volunteers who are dedicated to raising money and make a difference to our School so that our children can have the best educational opportunities possible, even when the school budget is not available to pay for it.
We work closely together with the teachers to identify what the children at Swanland School need and during the past few years, Swanland School PTA has done extremely well running lots of events, and with great help and support, have raised incredible sums of money which has enriched the lives of its children.
Our main goals for 2019-2020 are to raise £5,000 to support technology ventures. We hope to purchase another 16 new laptops and a storage cabinet. This will give the school a full class set making sure the children have the opportunity to acquire and develop their PC knowedge and skills throughout their school journey. We would also like to raise in the region of £1,000 to refurbish the multi-cultural kitchen where the children enjoy cooking and tasting sessions to fit around their topics.
We have an AGM (Annual General Meeting) held in September and then set out aims and priorities for the three terms of the academic calendar. We usually meet twice a term and set up smaller working groups to organise individual events. Why not come along to find out more?
We encourage as many parents as possible to get in touch and get involved. You may wish to join the PTA committee, become a Class Rep or, if you feel you do not have time for that, you can become one of our event volunteers. We usually need a bit more help at our larger fundraising events – the Christmas Fayre and the Summer Fayre.
To keep you up to date we produce a monthly newsletter and if you haven’t done so already, you can sign up on the PTA Events website so you are ready to purchase tickets for future events and join our Facebook Group.
We thank you for all the support you have given over the years and we thank you in advance for supporting the upcoming fundraising activities.
The PTA is a great opportunity to meet other parents and get involved in supporting the school so if you wish to be a part of the PTA, or have any questions then please contact our Secretary on firstname.lastname@example.org
