Fir Tree School Parent Teacher Association (PTA) works tirelessly to organise fundraising events to enhance the school curriculum. We raise money to pay for extra classroom supplies, play equipment and treats for the children.
We raise money by holding events such as the Christmas Craft Fayre and Summer Fete, running Bingo and Quiz Nights, holding cake sales, and helping with community events such as the Wallingford Fireworks.
Typically, each year the PTA pays for:
In 2017-2018, the PTA paid for new staging for plays and concerts, additional tools for the kitchen garden, books and a portable PA system.
In 2016-2017, the PTA paid for resurfacing around one of the climbing frames, Bhangra drumming days, new cameras for each classroom, sunshades for the picnic tables and equipping the very popular Forest Fridays.
In 2015-16, the PTA funded and created the new school pond, complete with plants and frogs! The PTA contributed to the purchase of recorders for all new Fir Tree Students as well as other instruments as the orchestra grows.
We meet three times a year to plan how to raise and spend money. If you would like to get involved, come along to one of the meetings, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or speak with Julie Bywater (chair), Pam Gray (treasurer) or Rebecca Taylor (secretary).
Keeping in touch:
The PTA sends out a termly newsletter with details of upcoming events. Details of events are posed on the noticeboard. We also have a Facebook page, (https://www.facebook.com/groups/firtreepta/) where we keep you up to date.
