Fundraising and our P.T.A.
Fundraising is a vital part of our commitment to providing the best possible opportunities for the pupils at Frieth School. There are many ways in which we raise funds, both small and large and we are extremely grateful to the army of staff, governors, PTA members, volunteers, the Parish Council and community members who support the school by raising funds.
Our P.T.A. (Parent Teacher Association)
We have a very active PTA who support the school by raising funds for the enhancement of our curriculum. For example, they recently purchased ten laptops with a charging trolley, as well as our online reading scheme, both of which supported our pupils through their period of remote learning. Over the course of the year, they run a number of events to raise funds and provide exciting opportunities for the pupils, including the following:
- A Welcome Lunch for new parents
- Frieth Family Social
- Frieth Hilly
- Christmas Fayre
- Winter Ball
- School Discos
- Film Nights
- Pamper Evenings
- Easter Egg Hunt
- Cake sales
- Quiz Nights.
We are very grateful for all the hard work our PTA put in to support us. They are always keen to welcome new volunteers, so whether you have a lot of time to offer, or just a little, please do get in touch to offer your ideas.
As a result of all this fantastic fundraising, over the past few years the PTA have provided:
- Ten reconditioned laptops with a charging trolley
- Subsidies for the residential trip to France for those who may not otherwise be able to attend
- Outdoor learning resources for EYFS
- Online learning resources, which can be accessed from home, including reading 'books'.
- Additional school resources such as atlases and dictionaries
- CD players for every classroom
- A new PA system
- A Fridge Freezer for the kitchen area
- A Baby Belling Oven and trolley for food technology lessons
- A slatted music wall
- New bikes and trikes
- The Junior Librarian System for the new library
This list gives you some idea of the vital resources the PTA are able to help the school provide with their super fundraising efforts! Below are just a few photos of the pupils enjoying their learning as a result!
To all the PTA Committee Members and volunteers who have supported the fundraising, we'd like to say a massive
