About the PTA

The PTA brings together parents, teachers and others from the school community who are interested in supporting the school, providing an opportunity for everyone to work together, with a common purpose - to organise fundraising and social events. Events organised include school discos, quiz nights, chocolate bingo, film nights, Christmas and Summer Fayres. We currently meet a couple of times a term, usually in the evenings. We appreciate that parents are very busy, so being involved with the PTA doesn’t have to be a big commitment; if you can help out at one of our events, contribute a raffle prize, or bring along a bunch of friends and family to support us at an event, we would be very grateful.

PTA - next meeting
Thursday 18th May at 3:30pm.

The PTA is desperately seeking new members as there are just a few active members left. Friarswood has always had a lot of fun, fundraising events, raising much needed money to help our children through the years. Some of the recent outgoings from these funds have been; money towards the playground canopies, outdoor classroom furniture, coaches for trips,  leavers books for year 6 and every child having a fully funded school trip last year, just to name a few!
We can only continue to raise this money and run these events that the children enjoy so much with parental support and new PTA committee members. The PTA consists of one, one hour meeting once a half term (approx.) Then help setting up an event, running an event and clearing up after an event, not all three if there are many hands! If this is not a possibility at the moment, then ideas for fund raising events or even help getting raffle prize donations all help greatly.
If this is something that you think you could help with, then please come along to our PTA meeting and see what it’s all about, to help to keep the Friarswood PTA running strong! If you need further information or are unable to attend this meeting but would be able to help the PTA, then please speak to Mrs Bebbington or email (bebbington.s@friarswood.staffs.sch.uk) This meeting will be straight after school on Thursday 18th  May.

Friarswood Primary School PTA - Newsletter May 2016
It has been a busy half-term - we can’t believe how fast it has gone!

Contributions to school in 2016
Hopefully lots of you will have seen Mrs Wilmer’s emails confirming that this year the PTA is funding a trip for every child in school. KS2 are going to see Gangsta Granny, Yr 1 & 2 are going to Cadbury World, and Reception and Nursery are going to Wonderland. Lots of children and parents have requested that they would like to have more trips, and we are really pleased that we have been able to raise the money required to pay for these trips - thank you to everyone who has helped to raise a fantastic amount!

Upcoming Events
We have lots of fun activities planned for the coming weeks:

Thursday 26th May 6pm-7.30: School Disco
Friday 1st July - non-uniform day - Bring a bottle for the Summer Fayre tombola
Saturday 9th July 12pm-3pm: Summer Fayre
Thursday 14th July 6pm-7.30pm: Summer Disco

We are also hoping to do some Father’s Day activities in school during the week commencing 13th June - if you would like to help the PTA for an hour on Thursday 16th or Friday 17th June - please get in touch! The more the merrier!

Summer Fayre
One of our biggest fundraising events of the year - we are really looking forward to another lovely afternoon (in the sunshine hopefully!)
This year, as it’s nearly the Olympics, we are having a sporty/Olympic/Rio theme - we’ll have lots of fun sporty and carnival themed activities for you to get involved with, along with food, drink and music. We hope that lots of you will be able to come!

Raffle prizes

New PTA members
Calling all volunteers! Could you help to fundraise, set up a disco, or serve tea and coffee at an event? In July we’ll be saying goodbye to several Yr6 parents, and we will need some extra helpers for September! If you’d like to get involved, please get in touch!

Thank you for your continued support!
