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. These have included the wonderful new wooden play equipment, large wooden sandpit, refurbishment of the bike area, Year 2 trip to Go-Ape, Lego robot kits, wicker pods for Nursery children, ice creams at the panto, new stage lighting and so much more.
All PTA events and purchases are booked via the new PTA Events Website. For this reason, all parents/carers are required to register on the PTA website to be able to book tickets for PTA led events. Please follow this link to register: https://www.pta-events.com/stchristophersepsom.

Putting the ‘fun’ into fundraising
A packed calendar of events not only raises funds but creates a sociable environment and close-knit parent community in our school. Coffee mornings and monthly evening meetings, are well attended, lively, fun opportunities to catch up and meet other parents.

- Chinese New Year Dance Workshop
- Classroom books in support of World Book Day
- Farm on the Field

Make a Difference
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.
You don’t have to be a committee member to contribute. Please get in touch with us should you have any ideas or time to spare. There are lots of opportunities for you to get involved.
