PTA



Welcome to our school PTA page.

Every parent who has a child at St Peter’s School is automatically a member of the Parent Teacher Association.   But, it’s up to you how involved you become as your child develops at school.

We are always looking for new faces and new ideas to raise vital funds for school activities.  Last year the PTA paid for an ‘M and M Theatre Group’ visit, Keystrings Music concert and new netbooks, as well as making a contribution to school transport costs for trips/gym and swimming. We really do make a difference!

These funds were raised via activities such as hosting a stall at the Christmas Fair, serving tea and coffee at school events, organising the Summer Fair and running quiz evenings and such like.  We also work with school to host Film Nights, collect Dragon bags of second hand clothes, run books sales etc.

We have included some pictures from the pre-2020 archives below, but as you can imagine, right now our activities are a bit different to previous years and we are always looking for ways we can raise money to continue to support school and vital resources for our children’s education.

We are trying new things all the time, so please read on to find out how you can help us raise money even in these challenging times.

Download ‘The Autumn Challenge Pack’ for half term.

With half term coming up, we’ve put together a fun autumn activity pack for you to enjoy with your family to get out and about locally in Rossett if the weather permits.   As you know, our fundraising efforts have been severely hampered by the ongoing Covid-19 restrictions, yet the school still has many outgoing not funded by the local authority which we would love to be able to contribute towards.  So whilst this pack is of course free to download, we would be grateful if you would consider making a small donation direct to the PTA account to boost this year’s fund raising efforts.   Every little helps!  Our account details are below:

Drop off your old unwanted clothes into our Dragon Bag Drop Box at school

Daffi the Dragon helps children learn about recycling and helps us raise money!

 

The Box Drop is situated in the school car park.

If you have any unwanted clothing, please drop it off at school directly into our Box Drop which is situated in the teacher’s car park.  Daffi the Dragon is the mascot for Dragon Bags and this initiative raises funds and eco-awareness in school as the clothes are recycled.  More about Dragon Bags (including what you can and can’t put into the bags) can be found here.

Just this term (Sept to 18th Oct) the collection has already paid us £54 for our first box collection!  Thanks to all who have donated a bag so far.  Keep them coming!

Could you help us with match funding?

If you work for a business that offers ‘match funding’, we can work with you so that St Peter’s receive a donation from your company that ‘matches’ funds we have raised (usually from a specific event or stall).  More details are below, but please get in touch for more information.

The 2019 to 20 committee have agreed to stay in post for the time being.  Wendy Pace is chair, Frances Jones is vice chair, Jen Sutherland, secretary and Ruth Ward, treasurer. We are very grateful to these parents for taking on the roles of office and for the other parents who make up the committee.
