Meet The St. Jude’s Parent/Teachers Association (PTA)
A huge welcome to all parents and carers, and especially anyone new to the school! The St Jude’s PTA is a friendly charity group who support the school, organise events for the school community and fundraise.
The PTA was founded in 2009 by a group of dedicated parents and since then it has gone from strength to strength, with the number of active members growing significantly.
PTA meetings are held once a term, usually on a Friday, 9am-10am in the Art Room. Please see the calendar for next meeting date. Everyone is welcome to attend (including younger siblings). We also hold specific event sub-group meetings when needed, and informal social get togethers. See calendar for dates.
If you would like to get involved in any fundraising, or help at school events, we are always looking for volunteers.
Please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org or speak to Susie (Joseph, Year 3), Dolina (Natasha, Year 3) or Deborah (Agnes, Year 1).
We fundraise for computer equipment, football kits, educational workshops, art murals and much much more!!!

A very easy way to raise funds for the PTA without costing you a penny is to sign up to EasyFundraising.
Every online purchase at many of your favourite websites raises funds for the school.
