The PTA

 

What is the PTA?

The Parent Teacher Association of Henwick Primary School (Henwick PTA) was formed in January 2016 and is an organisation of parents/carers and school staff. We aim to support Henwick Primary School through fundraising and social events and provide closer links between the school and parents/carers.

 

The structure of Henwick PTA

All parents/carers and school employees are automatically members of Henwick PTA. The PTA held its Annual General Meeting (AGM) in March 2019. At this meeting a committee was elected, consisting of :

  • Chair - Nancy Hall
  • Secretary - Linda Wood
  • Treasurer - Rebecca Cox
  • Communications Officers - Tajudeen Alao & Deborah Cargo
  • Large Events Coordinator - Clementine Day
  • Small Events Coordinator - Tatjana Eko
  • Ideas & Fundraising - Jason Cargo
  • Parent Publicist - Sam Jones

 

What we aim to do

We plan to raise money generally through events – for example a school uniform sale, Christmas fair, cake sale...We are always looking for new fundraising ideas. We would also like to organise social events for the parents/carers to get to know each other and thereby fostering the community spirit.

 

How we plan to spend the money

We will always try and respond to the children’s requests; it will be great to see them having fun at the events or enjoying using a piece of new equipment that Henwick PTA will have donated. One recent wish the children expressed was to have a climbing frame in the playground; this could be our fundraising goal for the foreseeable future.

 

How you can help?

You are welcome to share your ideas at monthly PTA meetings which are held variably during the daytime and in the evenings to ensure that everyone can attend. You can also simply grab any of us in the playground or email HenwickPTA@outlook.com . Even half an hour of your time is a tremendous help to our community. Everyone can do their bit - helping on a stall, donating old toys or cakes for sale, helping to decorate the hall for the fair – there is plenty to do and every offer of help will be taken up.

Thank you for your support!
