PTA

A warm welcome to St Joseph’s School PTA

 

Our mission: “Enriching our children’s school lives through fundraising.”

 

Meet our PTA…

 

St. Joseph’s Parent and Teachers Association is made up of a committee of 15 elected people. The positions are: Chairperson, Vice Chairperson, Treasurer, Secretary. We have 8 class representatives (one in each class year), 2 teacher representatives and our President is Headteacher Miss Buxton.

What does the PTA do?

 

We help to raise money for the little extras and luxuries for the children by holding fantastic fundraising events. The money raised has so far helped us to purchase our new improved Trim Trail in the playground, a projector, PA system, our website design, play equipment for Foundation Stage and KS1, digital cameras, a friendship bench, lunchtime play equipment for the whole school and equipment for the kitchen. Our superb events include BBQs, shopping and food evenings, our hugely popular Summer Fayre, Christmas events, raffles cake sales and parties. Take a look at some of our latest PTA events.

 

Who can attend meetings?

 

Everyone who has a link with St. Joseph’s school is welcome to the PTA meetings including parents past and present, grandparents, teachers, governors, and St. Joseph’s congregation. We welcome any support from parents who would like to get involved. Every little contribution helps even if it is just a few hours volunteering at an event, baking a cake, donating items for our stalls or coming to a PTA meeting.

 

 When and where are the meetings?

 

We hold the meetings once a month in the school hall at 7pm, and if you can’t join us in the evenings we hold afternoon meetings – toddlers welcome! There is usually tea, coffee, biscuits and, if you’re lucky, a cake!

 

How to get involved…

 

Come and join us at a meeting or speak with your class rep. Any offers of help or new ideas are always welcome. Even a few hours selling tickets or serving teas is more than helpful. Your PTA needs you – remember it’s for the children. To contact the PTA please email office@stjosephs.dorset.sch.uk

Fundraising

 

Help earn extra money for our PTA which will in turn benefit the children at our school – we have arranged a special deal with Stamptastic who are a stamping company who can  label everything from clothes to pencil cases, to shoes.  For every stamp purchased they will give a percentage to our PTA by quoting our special code upon ordering. Family and friends can order too just use the special code. Our unique code is STJOSEPH2 – have a look at their website www.stamptastic.co.uk as they have a beautiful range of Christmas stamps at the moment which will be really useful for speeding up the writing of Christmas cards and gift tags!
