Fundraising for 2016-2017

Stonegate School has a thriving PTA which aims to raise money to support the learning of every child.

This year we are raising money to purchase laptops for the children and enriching the curriculum for the children.

We have paid for: A whole school visit to the theatre, an exotic animal handling session, a treat at Christmas, an author visit to the school and a whole school visit to the Science Centre as part of Science Week.

If you would like to join the PTA, then please see Mrs Welch in the School Office.

About the PTA

What are we?

The Parents Teachers Association (PTA) is just that - a committee of staff and parents working together for the good of the school. The PTA is a bridge between the school and parents and draws them together in a common goal – making Stonegate School the best it can be.

The majority of the PTA’s work focuses on fundraising but linked into this is a social aspect – with family fun days or quiz/race nights, fetes and fairs. The children and parents and teachers are given a way to enjoy the social aspects of school life and also feel part of the wider community of Stonegate village.

The PTA has a core committee – a team of dedicated organisers who set all the wheels in motion for the main fundraising events and extra-curricular activities provided by the PTA. The Committee meet on a regular basis (once a term) – anyone is able to join and new members are always welcome. 

What do we do?

Most of the events we run are for fund-raising purposes and most of our funds are raised through the events we run! Our School Fête is a very popular date on the school calendar, with the Grand Draw, tombola’s, pony rides, delicious burgers, Pimms Tent and many other stalls. It’s a wonderful occasion for families to socialise whilst giving something back to the school. At the other end of the year we have a Christmas Bazaar, and even Santa himself usually makes an effort to put in an appearance at that event. The PTA are always delighted with any parental help they can get, so even if you’re only able to man a stall for half an hour, your efforts will still be very much appreciated.

Throughout the year we have other events or activities – a fantastic quiz night to name but one, but if there are any budding fundraisers out there, bursting with fresh ideas, we’d love to hear them!
