Welcome to the Sheldwich Primary School PTA
(also known as 'Supporters of Sheldwich').
Our Family Fun Day on Saturday went really well and we raised
A great result! The money will be put towards the new trim trail.
We hope everyone who came had a good time and would like to say an enormous thank you to everyone who helped with preparations, running stalls. clearing up and for all the kind donations towards the raffle prizes and cakes. A big well done to the school dancers and choir who were fabulous!
We will be sending home a feedback form and would be delighted if you could fill it in so we can make future events even better!
Friday ice-creams every Friday until the end of term.
We will be selling squash, biscuits and ice-creams at Sports Day, Wednesday 27th June.
Friday 29th June Pool Party! 6.45-8.45 at Faversham Outdoor Pools.
Friday 13th July - end of year party on the playground - BBQ and music straight after school.
We hope you have all enjoyed the events organised this year: Christmas and summer fairs, disco and film night, quiz, Mother’s Day crafts and Friday ice creams.
The money we raise at our events is for things to benefit the children. This school year we have bought the playground chess set, 1/3 of the wooden train and contributed towards the Christmas pantomime and the year 6 leavers hoodies and year books. Our next goal, as requested by the school, is to replace the trim trail.
We will start planning fun events for next year soon! If you think it would be fun to join us or have any questions or suggestions please speak to Ruth on the playground or email Sheldwichpta@gmail.com.

Refreshments for Sports Day - Wednesday 27th June

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 2017 - 2018, our committee is made up as follows:
Chair - Ruth Twynam
Secretary - Vacancy
Treasurer - Leanne Davies
Lydia McCorriston (staff)
Charlotte Hayward (parent)
Soshanna Hayhoe (parent)
Claire Roberts (parent)
Sveti Hristov (parent)
Carla Roche (parent)
Tara Blake-Harbord (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 an outdoor classroom, bought thousands of pounds of new resources, equipped our ICT suite with 30 computers and headphones and bought hundreds of books for the junior and infant libraries. We have helped the school pay for the outdoor dining space including picnic tables and covered the cost of our Year 6 Leavers' hoodies and books.
This year the PTA will be fundraising to help fund a replacement trim trail on the field and a log train to be placed near the pirate ship.
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 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).
