A considerable amount of money is raised for school by the PTA each year and their contribution to the community life of our school is crucial. The PTA not only arranges fundraising events, but arranges and funds or subsidises many events for the children each year including Christmas party, Christmas present for each pupil, Easter egg hunt including Easter egg for each pupil, visiting music/drama groups.
The PTA is conscious of the need to spread investment, events and subsidies across all year groups, and spends its money carefully - if nothing is needed, nothing is purchased. This means that families benefit from PTA funds from day one and probably before they have even contributed. Equally, being a small school it is very difficult to assist with funding major projects unless some reserve is held.
FACES (Friends at Cadmore End School) is for anyone who wants to come and help raise funds and fun events for the school. We raise money for large and small projects around school that help enhance our children’s experiences at school.
There are lots of ways you can help!
Got any good fund raising ideas? Come along to our next meeting and share your ideas.
Help run an event. Organise or help run an event...many hands make light work! Cook sausages at hot dog day, send in raffle prizes, make cakes, run a stall at the Christmas fair or the tuck shop at the disco, make pancakes, get a quiz team together, pluck eyebrows, serve teas .... If we all donated an hour a term, that would be over 100 hours of volunteering! WOW
