Orchard PTA in 2016 – 2017


Open Letter to Friends of Orchard

The Orchard PTA is made up of parents and teachers, who meet regularly to arrange events to raise funds. The money raised goes towards enriching opportunities for children.

The PTA is raising funds this year to purchase new home reading books, replace the KS1 playground structure, subsidise a trip for each year group, buy in a workshop for Keeping Healthy Week which all pupils can enjoy and contribute to the end of Year 6 celebrations. If there is any money left, we would like to provide teachers with a classroom ‘extras’ budget!

To enable us to raise this money we will be holding several events throughout the year these being: Film Nights, a Winter Fayre, a Summer Fayre, a Quiz Night, Cake Sales and a Parent’s Evening Shop Sale.

We would love to have new members join the PTA, or if you would just like to help at any events we would be very grateful of this too.
