The purpose of any PTA is to raise money to improve the experience in school for all children and provide activities and opportunities they would not normally have. However, due to Coronavirus restrictions, we cannot do the same type of fundraising activities we are all familiar with. 
 
Goal – Ipads
 
Our long term goal, which will have a truly massive impact on teaching and learning, is to raise money for IPAD’s. We are are aiming to raise enough money for 30 Ipads, cases and pencils, which is a class set and a trolley. This is will be about £15K. We are going to start with…
 
Smartie Challenge
 
From next week (WC 07/12/2020), we will be sending all children home with a smarties tube with smarties in or a suitable alternative, such as dairy free. The easier of the two challenges is to eat the chocolate and the more tougher challenge is to  collect 20p coins to go in the empty tube.  Tubes to be returned to class by the 29th January.
 
The class that raises the most will get a treat afternoon. 
 
Estimated – 40 tubes – 1 Ipad.
 
Easy Fundraising
 
Just to make you aware, we use the easy fundraising website and all money raised goes to making the school even better. It is easy to register and we get a percentage of your purchases when you use the website and this doesn’t cost you a penny.
