St. Werburgh's PTA (Parent Teacher Association) is a registered charity which operates with the sole purpose of fund-raising for the children of St. Werburgh's C.E. Primary School. The PTA organise lots of events throughout the school year and all are welcome to join.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, PTA events are currently a little different, as face-to-face meetings and events are sadly unable to take place. The committee are working hard to provide fund-raising opportunities and, as always, would welcome suggestions and support.
In the past few years, your kind donations and support of events meant that the wonderful PTA could support the children in many ways, including: paying for a pantomime to visit the school; subsidising costs of school trips/ educational visits; providing gifts at 'special' times of year for all children; buying a book for each child; buying gifts for those leaving us for High School; buying new caps for the Playground Leaders; buying books for the library; buying a new sports team kit; buying a shop for the FS/KS1 playground; buying new laptops; buying an ipad, buying a new FS/KS1 Phonics reading scheme and much more!
You are very welcome to the next PTA Meeting in school.
Next PTA event:
Mrs G. Harrod
Mrs L. Smith
Mrs E. Price
In these uncertain times, your PTA wrote to all parents/carers asking if anyone wishes to object to the re-election of the above committee members given that for the foreseeable future, many of our usual fund-raising events have had to be postponed. The committee have indicated their willingness to continue in the roles and welcomed any suggestions to fund-raise whilst maintaining the current restrictions either through email or via the PTA Facebook page. Any objections to the committee structure being maintained, or any comments, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
FUNDRAISING 2020 - HOW YOU CAN BE INVOLVED
'Easy Fundraising' whilst shopping from home.
As the time for Christmas shopping is fast approaching we would like to share with you a way that you can raise funds for your PTA, here at St Werburgh's C.E. Primary School.
As many parents/carers will already be aware, we have had an 'easy fundraising' account for a number of years and last year, we launched our Amazon Smile account too. For new parents/carers, we wanted to explain that this is a way of raising money for charities without having to spend anything extra from your own pocket.
For Amazon Smile: if you log onto Amazon through the Amazon Smile app and choose St Werburgh’s PTA Kingsley as your chosen charity, they will then donate 0.5% of whatever you spend on Amazon directly to our PTA.
For Easy Fundraising: if you use the 'Easy Fundraising' app and then log onto a variety of websites through easy fundraising eg Ebay, Argos, M&S, Debenhams, Go Compare etc (there are 100+ participants) and choose St Werburghs PTA Kingsley as your chosen charity, again we will receive a percentage of what you spend with no extra cost to yourselves.
By parents/carers shopping via the 'Easy Fundraising' app for our PTA charity we have so far raised £422.53 and £22.59 through Amazon Smile. It is a simple way to raise money with no cost to us as parents/carers.
We continue to be so grateful for your support and efforts towards raising money for our children here at St Werburgh's C.E. Primary.
