William Alvey PTA
The Christmas Fair is on Saturday 2nd December. If anyone makes craft items etc and would like a stall they can be booked through the office. £10 per stall and a raffle prize donation. Also, we’re looking for volunteers to help on the day. If you can help out please leave your name in the office, that would be great.
At the meeting on 6th November 2017 the PTA decided to subsidise Year Group trips by £3.00/child (an increase from £2.00 in 2016-2017). A request from Mrs Swain (Year 5) for dictionaries and thesauruses was also granted at a cost of £482.97 . The PTA agreed to donate the Cake Sale contributions to each respective 'caking' year group.
The last Bags2School on 9th November raised £200.

How do we raise money?
For the last couple of years we have raised money from school discos , Christmas fair, Chocolate bingo night, quiz night , cake sales , bags to school and the sale of drinks, sweets etc at various functions.
How is the money spent?
Last year money raised by the PTA was spent on subsidising trips for every year group, sports equipment, new musical instruments and musical equipment, new goal posts , french dictionaries and the Year 6 leaving activities and yearbooks.
