What we do
As a PTA we try to organise lots of fun events that help bring families together and promote the community strength of Brabourne School. Through this we raise money that is invested in school projects – projects that the school would not otherwise be able to afford. Government funding is targeted primarily at teaching and teaching resources so any general improvements the school wants to make have to be funded separately.
In the last couple of years we have helped fund the solar panels on the roof of the school hall which now generate additional income for the school; we have raised money to improve the wireless network and to install cutting edge interactive projectors in all of the classrooms. We also subsidise school trips, swimming lessons and other miscellaneous school costs. This year we raised money to build an outdoor shelter and seating in the playground.
How you can help
To find out how you can help, join us on PTA Social (click the button above) where you will be able to see upcoming events and what jobs need doing. If you are able to and have the time, pick one that suits you. The more volunteers, the more we achieve and the more our children benefit.
The PTA committee
Any parent is automatically a member of the association and is more than welcome to attend meetings. We love to hear different opinions and if you have any time to help you’d be very popular!
As a registered charity, we do have to have elected officers and abide by our constitution. The committee for 2016/2017 is:
Chair – Jane Reid
Treasurer – Louise Waller
Secretary – Bea Coombes
Press/publicity – Jessica Selwood
When we meet
We try and alternate meetings between daytime and evening so that as many people as possible have the opportunity to attend. It’s also a good way to get to know the community.
