Welcome to the Sheldwich Primary School PTA
(also known as 'Supporters of Sheldwich').
Friday 7th June PTA Own Clothes Day
Please bring a luxury food item or drink into school in exchange for non-uniform.
Friday 21st June Summer Evening Event
This event will start at the end of the school day (3.30pm).
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 and children to use in the classrooms. The remainder with fundraising proceeds has been used to replace our old and rickety trim trail at the bottom of the field. Our new one is over near the pirate ship and it is wonderful!
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).
