Hello everyone! I’m Jennie the new Chairperson for Brookburn Primary PTA. I volunteer my time and have the support of an amazing committee to help raise money for the children at our school.
What is the PTA?
We are an open community of parent volunteers working alongside the school and teachers to provide funds to spend on items and activities which will enrich our childrens’ education.
We raise money through activities and events and really hope you can help us reach our target of £15,000 this academic year. Last year our efforts provided new audio- visual equipment for the school hall and £1600 for teachers so they each had a classroom budget. Almost £5,000 went towards the Year 6 Trip to Ghyll Head and we also funded the revamp of the reception playground and bought new overalls for the Den.
This Autumn term we are holding a film night, disco, organising Christmas Cards, a raffle, the Winter Fair and our fundraising calendar. We will also be selling tea and coffee and school logos at events and are planning a welly walk and other activities for the Spring and Summer Terms.
How can you get involved?
Please get in touch if you can help with anything – from blagging raffle prizes, scheduling or organising our social media, or if you have an idea for a fundraising event for the Spring or Summer Term.
As a parent at the school – we consider you a member, come along to the next meeting or volunteer your time at the next event.
We look forward to meeting you!
