Welcome to the Sheldwich Primary School PTA
(also known as 'Supporters of Sheldwich').
Events for the year 2018/19
Our Christmas Fair was a fantastic success and as well as being thoroughly enjoyable, we raised over £3000!
Some of this has already been spent on 6 Ipads for teachers to use in the classrooms. The remainder with fundraising proceeds we have been saving up, has been earmarked for a new Trim Trail. This will replace the faithful but very old and rickety one at the bottom of the field.
The picture below gives a rough idea of what we can expect:
Our next event is a Valentine Disco which is taking place on Friday 15th February, straight after school .
We have an extremely active parent/teacher/staff association at Sheldwich Primary School who organise many events throughout the year, to raise additional funds, enabling the school to purchase the ‘extras’ for the pupils.
For the academic year 2018 - 2019 our committee is made up as follows:
Chair - Ruth Twynam
Secretary - Rosie Charman
Treasurer - Leanne Davies
Lydia McCorriston (staff)
Charlotte Hayward (parent & governor)
Soshanna Hayhoe (parent)
Claire Roberts (parent)
Sveti Hristov (parent)
Carla Roche (parent)
Tara Blake-Harbord (parent)
Marion Cassan (parent)
Over recent years the PTA have been able to help with the cost of our pantomime, provided large outdoor play activities such as the pirate ship and train, purchased many class resources such as headphones and books. We have helped the school pay for the outdoor dining space including picnic tables and we cover the cost every year of our Year 6 Leavers' hoodies and books.
Fund raising events take place throughout the year for pupils and parents to participate in. As well as the traditional Christmas and Summer Fair, the PTA organises parties for pupils, quizzes for parents and an Easter Egg Hunt.
If you have any ideas you would like suggest to our PTA, please speak to us on the playground (the office staff can point us out), or message us on our Facebook page (Supporters of Sheldwich PTA).
