Kick-off Meeting – 11th Oct at 6pm

We have a date for a kick-off meeting and AGM for the new school PTA. Next Thursday the 11th at 6pm.

We also have a date for a winter event, which we can decide on once we have a committee. We have use of the school hall and the kitchen (Alison has kindly agreed to help) to do our first event – whether large or small. So save the date of Saturday 1st Dec!

Hopefully it should be a short meeting to meet whoever wants to be involved. As well as arranging social events so that parents and teachers can get to know each other informally, the PTA will be raising money for a cause we decide on via the  school fund – which already exists, and which the school bursar runs. Because a PTA is a constitutional group we will elect committee members and the key posts of chair, secretary, and vice chair. The bursar has agreed to be the treasurer, and he will be at the meeting next week too.

One thing to say – please don’t be put off by the word ‘election’ when it comes to being on the committee! In practice we will have a show of hands, and anyone who thinks they would be able to help (either by coming to some – not all-  meetings or at events) will be more than welcome to join – the more the merrier. A good idea might be for meetings to be at varied times of the day so that as many as possible can come to the occasional meeting. All parents and teachers are automatically ‘members’ of a PTA, and the committee will meet around once a term – or to arrange events. Hopefully the PTA can be an enjoyable way to meet other parents and get to know the school community.

There will be some posters available for this event tomorrow. If anyone can help to put these up any help will be appreciated. There will also be a  letter and sign-up slip for anyone who wants to be on the committee to register their interest – perhaps with a box in the office – so that anyone can join even if they are not available for the meeting next week.

If you are available to help me set up for the meeting on the 11th, or are  able to bring some snacks, do let me know. It would be great to hear if you are able to come or not also – to get some idea of numbers.

Meanwhile do subscribe to the blog, and then you can receive (and write if you join the committee) any news:
