Your school, your children, your PTA
At St Christopher’s, the PTA play an active role in the life of the school, and it’s all for the benefit of you and your children. Fundraising has resulted in some wonderful additions to school resources and enhancements to our environment. This year alone, our PTA has funded a fantastic large wooden sandpit and a wooden bug table and chairs; items enjoyed by children right through from nursery to year 2.
Putting the ‘fun’ into fundraising
Our fundraising is based on a range of fabulous events, enjoyed throughout the year. We hold highly popular Summer and Christmas Fairs where our families cram in to the school for games, raffles, arts and crafts, facepainting, cake stalls and more. Our evening events for parents provide a great opportunity for socialising; whether it’s competing at quiz night, winning at Race Night or getting dressed up for the glamorous black tie Summer Ball. Our children’s activities include discos, treat days and cinema nights.
A little means a lot
We encourage as many of our parents as possible to get involved in the PTA. Aside from meetings and arranging the larger events, there are always opportunities to take on smaller, occasional tasks. Helping out now and again is fun, rewarding and a brilliant opportunity to meet other parents.
This month saw an exciting new addition to the PTA Calendar; Movie Night. Our reception to year 2 children arrived back at school dressed in their jim-jams; with a host of duvets, blankets, pillows and cuddly toys in tow. After sitting beautifully through Trolls, the best part of the evening was the spontaneous outbreak of dancing as the finale ‘Can’t stop the feeling’ came on. Perhaps we gave them too much popcorn?
2017 PTA Summer Ball
The 2017 PTA Summer Ball at Kingswood Golf Club was a resounding success.
Featuring for the first time a magician as well as a fantastic red carpet photobooth, the evening also saw sparkling desserts, glittering dresses and some awesome dancing.
Even the sun managed to make a short appearance at what was truly one of the most enjoyable evenings of the year.
Planning for next year’s event is already underway and details will be available very soon…
