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.

We all know that school funding is limited and that is why the PTA is so vitally important to buy all the extras our children deserve to have to enhance their education and enjoyment at school.  In the past the PTA has raised money for laptops, learning screens, the Key stage 1 playground, school trips, workshops and caring for our nature garden and resident chickens.

This year because of Covid-19, we need your help with fundraising more than ever.  We haven’t been able to do our 3 biggest events, the Summer Fair, Fun Run and Christmas Fair so need to be creative about raising funds through other means.  We have some great ideas for Christmas events including raffles, an Advent challenge and an online gift shop.  

Please get in touch if you have any thoughts or would like to be involved. Please contact: stjudespta@googlemail.com or speak to Anoushka (Jimmy, year 5 & Hamish year 3), Sarah (Arthur, year 3 & Dora, reception) or Claire (Evelyn, year 4 & Theo, year 3).
