One of the things that makes our school special is the dynamic contribution of our Parent-Teacher Association. As a parent, you are automatically a member of the PTA, and we would love you to get involved in any way you can.
We work with the teachers to provide better opportunities for all our children – both financially, through fundraising, and practically, by helping out with extra-curricular activities. We meet termly in the evenings and you are always welcome to join us.
Our role is not just about making money but also about providing fun opportunities for us to come together. Every year, the PTA organises a variety of events for parents and children to enjoy which also fund much-needed amenities and improvements for the school.
Our PTA events have ranged from our hugely successful Summer Fair to the very popular Quiz Night, Cheese & Wine Evenings and Rocking Elvis & Curry Night. We also run a host of smaller fundraising events throughout the year, from selling organic fruit and veg bags in the playground, holding regular cake sales as well as a Big Pancake Breakfast.
In June 2018, Team St. Mary Mags embarked on a 186 mile cycle from London to Paris in under 24 hours and in 2019 they rode 59 miles from London to Brighton to raise money for our school. These are great examples of amazing fundraising opportunities which also allow us to come together and strengthen our community.
We look forward to welcoming you!
