The PTA (or Friends of Birchanger School as you may know it) has been an integral part of the school community for many years. In its time we have raised thousands of pounds, which has been spent on equipment and resources to enhance our children’s education experience and the school’s facilities.
The PTA exists to provide closer links between home and school and it is an excellent way to bring staff, parents and friends together socially in support of the school. All parents and members of the school community are encouraged to get involved, even if they only have a small amount of time available or via their contacts in the local business community.
Parents interested in joining the PTA or offering support on an ad hoc basis should contact Kirstie Waite – Kirstie.Waite@birchanger.essex.sch.uk
Any time and support is greatly appreciated!!
During the week that the nation celebrated Pancake Day, the PTA ran their annual pancake breakfast. Nearly 80 children from the school enjoyed the opportunity to have breakfast at school and they really enjoyed the pancakes and toast that the PTA provided. A big thank you goes to all of the PTA members who ran this event so well.
The PTA held its latest meeting on Monday 10th February and they discussed a number of new events to raise money that will go towards new laptops for the school. Here is a brief summary of what they decided. Please put these dates into your diaries so that you can join us for the fun.
Cake stall: This is set to combine with the ‘plant a tree day’ so that you can have something sweet whilst planting your tree.
Easter Disco: Thursday 2nd April 5-6.30pm ~ further details to follow
Summer Fete: Saturday 11th July. The children will be performing some dances to show their learning.
Birchanger 10k Race: Sunday 13th September. Once the sponsors have been finalised then there will be more details about how to register.
