We are the St Laurence Church Infant School PTA.
We are a registered charity which aims to bring together the parents and school. Throughout the year we hold exciting fundraising events for both children and parents that we repeat every year including discos for each year group, an Easter egg competition and a picture quiz. We also hold other fundraising events, usually following the discussion of new ideas and suggestions at the PTA meetings.
The money raised from these events helps to fund activities and equipment for your children and the school.
In the past we have purchased new bikes for the children to use in the playground. We have funded events such as candle dipping and Creative Arts Week Workshops. Annually, we arrange the visit of Father Christmas. We also purchase the Christmas tree for the school hall.
We hope to see many more parents becoming involved with the PTA and there are many ways in which you can do this:
- Help out at events
- Join the committee
- Attend meetings
- Share new ideas and suggestions.
We understand that everyone’s time is valuable these days, but any help or input will be much appreciated. Meetings usually take place once every half term on Wednesday evenings in school. It is a great way to get to know other parents and we look forward to meeting new parents at our regular meetings. Look out for our PTA letters in your child’s book bag or alternatively drop us a note in the PTA post box (on the wall inside the Main Entrance Foyer).
Also keep up-to-date with PTA activities in our regular Newsletters.
