Hello and a very warm welcome to Southborough’s Parent Teacher Association.
Every parent or carer with a pupil at our school automatically becomes a member of our PTA. Here at Southborough we have a fantastic, lively and active PTA committee, a group of parents and staff members who raise much needed funds to enhance the educational enrichment opportunities and enjoyment for our school community.
Each year we aim to raise approximately £10,000 and in previous years these funds have helped to provide resources ranging from table tennis tables and iPads to playground adventure trails. It is however not just our school who benefits from our fundraising but also members of our local community. We like to involve everyone locally as much as possible as we feel strong community relationships are vital.
We raise funds through a series of events held throughout the school year including Christmas and Summer Fairs, Easter Bingo, Quiz nights and our annual fireworks display.
There is no pressure to join our committee, your support in general is all that we ask. However, if you would like to become more involved we always appreciate help in a number of ways. Could you spend an evening folding raffle tickets for us? Or help with setting up or clearing up at events? Are you able to provide a service we may need such as printing, or able to provide sponsorship in some way such as through match funding? Or are you simply just good at fundraising ideas? If you feel you could make a difference, we would love to hear from you so please do get in touch via our email firstname.lastname@example.org
