St Teresa's Parent Teacher Association
At St Teresa's Catholic Primary School, our Parent Teacher Association support us fantastically, as a voluntary organisation, in providing the school with learning resources and additional items we believe are essential for our whole school community.
Across the course of an academic year, the PTA host various fundraising events to raise money for our school which goes directly back to the children and their learning. Annual events we host include:
Our annual Christmas Fair is a tradition and really gets our whole school community into the Christmas mood and spirit. Children and parents can visit Father Christmas and take home a present, as well as have fun at our wide variety of traditional Christmas stalls, including a raffle, bottle tombola and many different refreshment stands. During this unique event, each individual year group runs their own stall with each child producing a piece of work for purchasing. In addition, our Year 6 class host a wide range of different stalls, exposing them to many different life skills they may need to acquire in the future. One not to be missed!
Our annual Easter Bingo is held every year prior to the children breaking up for their Easter holidays. Each child is asked to bring an egg into school a few days before in exchange for them wearing non-school uniform on that day. The wide variety of eggs are made into bouquets ready for the bingo on the Sunday. This event is one for the whole family and is extremely well attended each year. Eyes down, it's bingo time!
Every year, prior to us breaking up for our summer holidays, we host our annual summer fair. Very similar to the Christmas Fair, just at a different time of the year, a range of traditional summer stalls, games and refreshments are on offer! The event takes place on our school field- some of the attractions include the coconut shy, beat the goalie penalty shoot out, sumo suit wrestling, gladiators as well as a wide variety of other stalls.
Our Year 6 class take an incredibly active part at this event as well and, in line with their 'The Apprentice' topic, they look at what it takes to run a stall, the equipment they will need, the price people are going to pay, the profit they make etc.
In addition, we host a wide variety of other events all for our children to enjoy:

Why do we need it?
To raise extra money to help provide the extra resources for our children and teachers which are not included in the school budget. Fortunately there is a real community feeling about the school & that is why the PTA is able to raise so much money. Every event organised by the committee is supported by a different set of parents - any effort, no matter how small, makes a difference.
