Winterfest:

With spring comes the run up to the busiest time of year for the PTA. The new owners of the Harrow have seen quite a bit of the PTA the last couple of months, and we have had a few meetings in there finalising details and planning for future events. You are always welcome to join us email us on contactpta@wanborough.org for more information.

With the end of term coming up the PTA give everyone a special Easter treat of an Easter breakfast with hot cross buns, toast and hot chocolate with marshmallows of course. We hope you all enjoyed it.

In early February we had the very youngest of the school community on the dance floor at our "Winterfest" reception and key stage one disco dancing away to the tune being spun by our very own DJ Woodman. We were so lucky it even snowed! We had a whale of time, and we hope the children did too. There were certainly some very sweaty face painted faces running around with smiles all over them. We have to say a huge thank you to everyone who came, everyone who purchased a ticket, bought a hotdog, had their face painted, had a drink from the bar or participated in the lucky dip. We also must say thank you to everyone who helped, it was lovely to see some of the ex-students back in the school. At this event we managed to raise just over £500. We are currently looking to raise monies to replace some of the SMART boards in the classrooms, so this amount will definitely be helpful.

Rags2Riches4Schools

Also in early February we had our Friends from Rags2Riches4Schools come to collect all your clothes donations. February's collection was huge at 120 bags and managed to raise just under £270. Whilst also preventing a huge amount of clothes from going to landfill. Our next Rags2Riches4Schools collection is planned for 21.06.2024, so please think of us while you are doing your spring cleaning and pop any unwanted clothes in a clean plastic bag and store in your attic or something until our collection in June.

A little while ago we put out a request on our Facebook page for sponsors for an idea we had for reusable event cups. We were really lucky and both Waylands Volvo and Primary Homes & Lettings stepped forward. A couple of weeks ago our lovely event cups arrived and we cannot wait to use them. We are just thinking about all the waste we will reduce in not having single use plastic or paper cups at the bar alone. So a huge thank you to our sponsors for these.

Our planning meetings are ramping up as we have the Summer Fete in our sights. The Summer Fete is our single largest event both in terms of planning, help required, and money raised. If you have any ideas about the fete, we would love to hear them contactpta@wanborough.org. In the meantime save the date of the 29th of June and pop it in your diary. Our popular Feteball football tournament will also be on and will surely be the biggest football event of the summer!!!!

KS2 Disco Party

To celebrate the end of SATs week and the start of the Summer season, we'll have our Party Event for Key Stage 2 on May 17th - look out for more details soon!

Not only has our planning been ramped up, but we have also been spending the money raised this term. The money that you have donated at our events, or the clothing that you have given us for our collections has helped enable us to give the school money toward Lego kits for Lego therapy, and purchase workshops from Silly Science for the whole school. We really hope that the children enjoyed their science workshops, which also tied in with Science Week. So thank you again for your donations and ongoing support.

We still really hope to run a quiz night this year, however, to do this we really need a quizmaster, is this something that you can help us with? Drop us at email at contactpta@wanboroughprimary.org

Donate whilst you shop

Are you signed up to Easyfundraising?

Easyfundraising offers an easy, accessible and continual way for us to raise free funds.

Big brands like Tesco, Amazon, M&S and 7,000 others want to give back to schools. When someone shops at one of these brands online, the brand will donate a percentage of what you spend to the PTA. It's like using a cashback site but the funds come to the PTA rather than an individual.

Once you have signed up to Easyfundraising this is how it works: you want to buy new shoes for your kids, instead of heading directly to the Clark's website, you head to the Easyfundraising website or app first and then click on the Clark's link. Once the purchase is made because you went to Easyfundraising first, we will receive a percentage of your spend directly... It's easy!
