Welcome to Our Lady School PTA

Who Are We?

As a parent, you are automatically a member of the PTA and we are fortunate to have a PTA that is such an integral part of the school community.

The PTA raises thousands of pounds each year and this money is used to improve equipment and resources. But our PTA is about much, much more than just fundraising. The PTA exists to provide closer links between home and school and it is an excellent way to bring staff, parents and friends together socially in support of the school. It is fun too and a great way to meet new parents. The PTA is extremely conscious of the ethos and morals of our school and we try very hard when organising and planning events to respect this.

We hold our Annual General Meeting at the end of the school year where we vote in our primary and secondary committee members as well as Class Representatives. This year our voted members are:

Fundraising

Our main annual fundraiser's are the Christmas and Summer Fayres, however we also hold regular events such as Disco’s, cake stalls, read-a-thons and non-uniform days. Other events we have undertaken are quiz &  bingo nights, film afternoons, Mothers and Fathers Day stalls and race nights. We also have ongoing fundraising including termly Bags2School collections, www.easyfundraising.co.uk, Pink & Greene, https://localgiving.com/donation/ourladyspta, Mobile phone recycling & DVD/CD/Video games collection with Music Magpie.

Meetings

PTA meetings are held every month at the school. Please look out for email reminders.

The next PTA meeting is Monday 9th October at 8pm. 

Please make every effort to attend, it is always lovely to see new faces. Everyone is welcome. 

 How Can You Be Involved?

As a parent of the school you are already part of the PTA. Involvement in the PTA can be on any level, from baking cakes for the cake stalls, helping out on a stall for half an hour at the fayres, coming up with fundraising ideas, attending PTA meetings, helping to organise fayres and events or simply by attending the events with your children and helping us raise funds.

It does not matter what your abilities are, or how much time you have, any help you can give is hugely appreciated. We understand that you may not be able to attend PTA meetings, but perhaps there is some other way you would like to be involved? Do you know someone who has a local business who would be willing to donate a raffle prize, advertise in an event brochure or give us a discount on their product? Does your company provide matched funding? Are you good at thinking of new ideas for different events or ways to raise funds? 
It is hugely rewarding for us as parents and especially for our children.

If you would like to be involved, please talk to your Class Rep and they will be able to tell you what's going on or where help is needed. Alternatively you can email us at ourladyspta@gmail.com. Don't forget to check the PTA notice board at the entrance to the playground for the latest news and events.
