Welcome to your PTA
Hello. We would like to introduce you to the PTA at Corpus Christi RC Primary School and tell you some key information about the PTA (Parent Teacher Association), how you can help us, and what's in it for you.
Why does the school have a PTA?
Our group is called Corpus Christi Parent Teacher Association and is a relatively new group. The main function of our PTA is to support the school by raising as much money as we can to enhance, enrich and improve learning experiences for the children. We also provide those 'little extras' that make school memorable.
We also exist to bring the communities of school and home closer together because it makes sense for parents to be involved in the life of their chosen school.
Lastly, we’re here for the simple reason that we want to get together socially, meet new people and have fun!
The PTA is run by a committee who are all volunteers. We have a very active WhatsApp group that anyone can join and contribute too, we find it’s the easiest way to obtain ideas and feedback from all the parents.
What are we raising money for next?
We always try to respond when asked to help the school, and after the work is done, it's so rewarding to see the children enjoy new resources and equipment provided by the PTA.
At present the school is promoting the love of reading and we are trying to purchase reading bins for the school playground and benches within the school grounds for reading.
How we keep you up-to-date with our activities?
We post notices about all upcoming ideas on our Facebook page as well as reminders about events and requests for volunteers.
We put flyers, sponsor forms and notices in book bags.
The school have a weekly newsletter in which we contribute ideas and reminder.
How can you get involved?
Even if you have younger children at home, or only a small amount of time, could you come to a meeting, help us apply for a grant, set up an event, serve food, ask a local business or supermarket for support or design a poster? Perhaps you have a professional skill you could help us out with? You don't have to come into the school; many of our volunteering tasks can be done from home. Any contribution is welcome.
We'd love to hear from you. If you want to find out more about the PTA and our activities, please contact Rachel Anslow at the school or email firstname.lastname@example.org
