Introduction to The PTA

All Parents, Guardians & Staff are members of the PTA, and are welcome to any committee meetings.

The next meeting will be on 10th February, 7.30pm at The Brewers Arms.

Our small PTA Committee needs more help if we are to rise to the challenge and put on a wide programme of events to bring the community together to have fun and raise much needed funds for the school.

If you'd like to help in anyway please do get in touch, contactpta@wanboroughprimary.org.
Quiz Night:
The 1st of February saw the finest quizzers in the village take part in the famous Wanborough School PTA quiz. We saw 13 teams battle it out to take the coveted Champions trophy home. The team crowned winners were the La Quizza Nostra team. Who won by 5 points, closely followed behind by Flapping in the Tallow End team. The bar was kept busy and plenty of bottles were consumed over the evening, leading to a fab evening had by all and nearly £1,000 raised for the PTA.

In addition to all the quizzing that was taking place we ran a music bingo and a £5. A huge thank you to the kind donation of £155 winnings to the PTA.

A huge thanks to all those taking part in this popular event, we couldn't do it without you, and to Guy and Neil "The Quizmasters" for writing the taxing questions, and there were definitely many quite tricky ones, and all those who helped out on the evening, and in preparation for the evening.

Could it be you next year? Keep an eye out on our communications for information regarding all our events

A Greener PTA
On our first event since the announcement of our desires to become a little bit greener, it was hugely welcomed to see the number of people arriving at the quiz with their own reusable plastic glasses. This definitely reduced the amount of plastic that we were getting through. So thank you. Remember you are welcome to bring your own reusable plastic cups and glasses to any of the PTA events and we will happily fill them.

Summer Fete:
It may seem a little early to be mentioning those "summer fete" words but the plans for this huge fundraising event are already being set into action. If you own or work for a company that may be able to make a donation be it a product, a service or a cash prize we would love to hear from you email us at; contactpta@wanboroughprimary.org The more donations we have the more we will be able to raise for the PTA, and we want to beat last years total. We have been really lucky so far this year, thanks to Rob da Bank and his team have already been donated a family ticket for two adults and up-to four under 17's for Camp Bestival worth just shy of £1,000 . So if you fancy getting down and partying with your kids at the family friendly festival in the shadow of Lulworth Castle to the tunes of Fat Boy Slim and others then make sure you purchase raffle tickets when we send them home in the book bags.

Easter Bake Sale:
Just before we all break up for the Easter holidays we will be be holding our annual Bake Sale, giving you all the opportunity to leave for the holidays stocked up with tasty and sugary treats… Yum. We will be putting plates in the book bags the week before the 3rd April, and ask that you please fill them and return them to school the morning of the 3rd of April, and remember to pop into the School Hall before you leave at lunchtime. In addition to our Easter Bake Sale we will also be holding our now famous egg decorating competition. In the run up to the end of term we will be asking pupil (and their parents) to decorate a hard boiled egg. There are rules and these will be made clear nearer to the time…. But get your thinking caps on and your creative fingers working. There are prizes for class winners, KS1 winners and KS2 winners. There is also a prize for the best decorated egg by an adult, and a prize for the top egg for a pre-schooler. Everyone can participate in the egg decorating fun, but to take part in the competition each egg has to pay £1. Prizes and Winners will be announced at the Bake Sale
