Friends of Otterham School (PTA)
Friends have started off the Autumn term with a very successful first meeting !
Well what a wonderful term so far, we have, thanks to you achieved so much.
As you are aware’ Bags To School ‘ has taken place this term and we are very pleased to announce that this has raised £52. Thank you all.
Miss Forbes would like to say a huge’ thank you’ for all your kind donations, she is pleased to tell you that John and his family are all safe and well. There is still a lot of rebuilding that needs to take place and a lot of support, however your donations will help many families, what an amazing thing !!
Fundraising is a major part of The Friends, and we are always welcome to new ideas and support.
Izzy Langley and her family held a very successful fund raising event at Trevilla Farm and along with contributions from the ‘Launceston Motor Club’ raised a fantastic £175.
Thank you for all the help provided by staff and parents at the ‘Great Otterham Sleepover’, it was an amazing event, and the children and adults thoroughly enjoyed themselves. We made a massive £380.
We thought we would let you know about where all your generous donations go to;
Magic Martin has already been booked for Christmas for his infamous magic show which is always a delight. The children are really looking forward to this (as are the staff!)
Friends have also donated £900 pounds to be spent on school library books for every year group, to meet British reading recommendations, as well as EYFS reading books. What a lovely opportunity for us to be able to do this.
We are also delighted to be able to pay for the coaches to transport the children to their class trips. Class 3 are going to the Eden Project and Class 2 and 3 to the cinema.
These are just a few examples of where your money goes.
We are beginning to discuss ideas for the Christmas fayre and we are always looking for new and exciting suggestions to keep our events fresh and fun!
Massive thanks to everyone who helped out at the summer fayre it was very much appreciated.
We have our next meeting arranged for the Thursday 23rd November at 9:00am. Everyone is welcome and we really welcome new members and fresh ideas to raise funds enabling the school to continue to provide quality education and learning opportunities, with a little bit of good old fashioned fun thrown in!! Tea and fabulous biccies thrown in.
We look forward to seeing you there, and remember you can always follow us on here !!
Kind Regards, The Friends of Otterham.
