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.

We fundraise for computer equipment, football kits, educational workshops, art murals and much much more!!!

PTA meetings are held once a term, usually on a Friday, 9am-10am in the Art Room. Please see the calendar below for the 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.

If you would like to get involved in any fundraising, or help at school events, we are always looking for volunteers.

Please contact: stjudespta@googlemail.com or speak to Susie (Joseph, year 6 & Josh year 1), Sarah (Arthur, year 2) or Claire (Evelyn, year 3 & Theo, year 2).
