Summer Fayre 2019
Thank you to everyone who came to the Fayre and made it such a special event. We couldn't have pulled it off without the support of all the parents, teachers and families attending, donating and helping.
We are delighted to announce the profit from the Summer Fayre was an amazing £2309.98. What a fantastic achievement. Money raised will go towards projects in school which will also be announced at a later date. So far as a PTA we have donated money towards many different areas in school. Please come to our meetings so you can have a say! It's your child's school and we need everyone's opinion to make informed decisions.
Our next events after summer are the Cardiff Family 2k/Half Fundraiser and Bingo Night!
These events are open for everyone and we will be confirming a meeting soon to organise them. If you would like to be involved please come along to our meeting or if you can't please email your suggestions through to email@example.com, Facebook or message us here
Katherine, Bláthnaid, Jo, Tim and Hannah.
We will be sharing the model constitution we hope to adopt - the first step to registering as a charity. Also Summer Fayre planning- which will be lots of fun!
We really need to you come to this!
If we don't have enough parents present, the vote to adopt the constitution won't be valid!
The constitution has been developed by Parentkind in association with the Charity Commission - especially for PTAs.
There will be no major changes in how we do things, we will still run the same fundraisers and socials. But becoming a charity means we can apply for match funding and gift aid, boosting the amount we can raise for the school.
