On behalf of the PTA welcome to our lovely school.
The Wherwell School Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is a Registered Charity run by a team of volunteer mums, dads, grandparents, governors and members of staff.
Our main objective is to raise funds to spend on the children to enhance their educational experience.
We hold a number of fundraising events and fun acivities during the school year for the children and their families.
Our motto is ‘Many Hands Make Light Work’ and we are always trying to encourage new parents to join us. You can be involved as much or as little as you like. We hold meetings every month, but we understand that sometimes it is hard to come to all of them. Therefore, you could take one project on board and make it your own or put your name forward to help with at least one activity during the year.
We are extremely lucky to have so many parents who are generous with both their time and resources. This has enabled us to hold some really successful fundraising and non fundraising initiatives like the Spring Fete, Harewood Forest Fun Run, Curry and Quiz Night, Film Club, Bags 2 School, Cakes Sales, Summer BBQ, Easter activities, Christmas cards, Christmas Parties and Christmas Hamper Raffle to name just a few.
With the funds raised during the last few years the PTA has been able to:
In addition we have paid for:
As you can see, the PTA plays an important role in making our school a much more fun place for the children and their families. But we cannot do it alone. We need all the help that we can get to make every event a succesful one. If you wish to get involved or come to one of our meetings, we would love to hear from you. Look out on our board in the playground for more information on ways of getting in touch.
