Holy Trinity CofE

Parent Teacher Association

The Parent Teacher Association is a registered charity whose only goal is to raise money for our school to fund items, events and experiences not covered by the school's normal council funding and designed to make your childrens’ time at Holy Trinity that little bit more special. 

Who are the PTA?

We are a mix of parents from across the year groups and teachers. We spend our time coming up with fundraising ideas for raising money for everything from new reading books to building a new outdoor area. We would love new members for our team! You can either join the committee and help plan activities and events (we meet about twice a term).

 If you can’t spare very much time, we also welcome any parents to help at the events that we run, if you would like to help please contact Nicky Peet via Classlist or speak to Mrs Cornfield in the School Office.

What have we funded?

In 2021, we raised a staggering £3,500! With that money we were able to fund:

  • £100 towards building a wildlife garden
  • 3 outdoor murals incl. world map and history timeline
  • £250 worth of new fiction books
  • A visit from an author
  • Crackers for school Christmas dinner
  • Ice creams for Christmas panto viewings
  • Pizzas for Year 6 leavers’ BBQ
  • £300 on laptop storage units for the new computers
  • Wish list of smaller items including: sharpie pens, bookshelf for the burrow, netball bibs and more…

Our School Wish Tree

Following requests and conversations with a number of parents, the PTA set up a wish tree. Staff leave suggestions of items (typically small things or thing not covered by traditional budgets) and parents can buy these items from an Amazon Wish List. There is no expectation for any families to feel obliged to take part. Below is the link to our wishlist:

Enter our monthly prize draw – The 50 Club

One of the many ways of raising funds is through the 50 club, which gives members a chance to win £20 in a monthly draw and is an easy way for those who find it difficult to support events to help raise funds for school without leaving home!

 

To become a member of The 50 Club for 2020/21, simply buy a ticket for £12.50. This ticket will cover entry to 12 monthly draws throughout 2020/21 academic year. There is no limit to the number of tickets you buy, so the more you buy the more chances you have to win and raise much needed funds for the school! Each month there will be a single prize of £20 to the member whose ticket is drawn. The first draw will take place as soon as the tickets are sold.

 

To purchase tickets, login to Classlist, select ‘events’ and purchase a ticket – or tickets! If you would prefer to make a BACS payment, please contact PTA Finance or see the letter from Mrs Fox.
