Whitchurch Primary School PTA
Hello and welcome to your PTA.
We are a registered charity dedicated to helping the school.
Made up of an enthusiastic group of parents and teachers, our main aim is to raise money to fund vital projects and equipment for our school - benefitting all our children and giving them greater opportunities.
During the last school year (2017/18), we raised over £5000 for the school - paying for, or contributing to many things, including 15 new iPads, new library books, sports and play equipment, an in-school play, Bloodhound day, den building day, class games, leavers' gifts, reception book bags, coach travel for trips and more.
If you are interested in joining us, or in volunteering to help in any way, please do let us know. We hold regular meetings, details of which are published below, on our FaceBook page and in the PTA notice board at the front of the school. New faces and ideas are always welcome.

Upcoming Meetings and Events

This last school year we have successfully held raffles, spooky disco, fireworks night, Christmas Fayre, Easter disco and Summer Fayre, as well as several after school sales - raising over £5,000 for the school.
