Welcome to the Stamford Park Junior School's PTA page...
WHO ARE WE, AND WHAT IS OUR ROLE?
The Parents’ and Teachers’ Association at Stamford Park Junior School is a registered charity formed with the goals of raising money and having fun. The PTA is an integral part of the school community, and in addition to fundraising, we put on events that bring the families of SPJS together.
In recent years, the PTA have helped to fund a wide range of extras for the school including the refit of the ICT room, a piano, along with numerous in school performances, contributions to school trips and parties, plus year 6 leavers presents.
The PTA would like to thank everyone who has supported us by either donating or giving their time helping out at events throughout the year. All support is truly appreciated and the monies raised directly benefit the students of the school. Thanks to our fundraising efforts and the support of parents, we have been able to raise over £8,000 pa in recent years.
HOW DO WE ACHIEVE THIS?
The PTA is made up of a committee of people - parents and teachers - who meet regularly to plan events and activities, and is supported by a team of parent-volunteers who give their time to help out at these events. Each year we welcome new parents to come and join us and bring fresh ideas and energy.
Activities can vary from year to year, but our efforts are generally focused on the following:
Along with these key events we hold various cake sales, raffles, clothing collections and other new events each year.
What can you do to help?
Any help you can give from as small as helping on a stall for half an hour or just giving ideas is always appreciated. Whatever we raise benefits your children.
WHAT IS OUR GOAL FOR THIS ACADEMIC YEAR?
This year we are raising money to pay for new lighting for the upper and lower Junior playgrounds. We are hoping to get the lighting in place before the end of 2017, enabling the sports clubs to continue their training in the darker winter months.
We are also hoping to invest in some new seating in the playgrounds, along with new plants to brighten up the Centenary garden and the school planters.
Thank you to everyone baked and bought cakes at our Easter cake sale on the last day of term - we raised over £150,
We have donated the profit from the cake sale to the Eco-council who have used the money to buy some colourful plants for the planters around the playgrounds and in the Centenary Garden.
This is what the Centenary garden looked like a few days ago ...
Stamford Park Junior School PTA: Summer Fun Day
Junior and Infant School Summer Fun Day - Saturday 24thJune, 1pm - 4pm
We are now fast approaching the Summer Fun Day, so please get this date in your diary NOW and start to think about saving any items destined for the charity shop, or adding a few treats to your weekly shopping list.
It is a great day, when the two schools combine forces to raise money and have fun! The emphasis is on family fun, with lots of traditional activities to excite the children.
The stalls will include: Craft making, face painting, sweets, toys and books, beer, pimms, barbeque and Rose the school chiefs amazing food stall, candy floss, tombola’s, beat the goalie, the stocks, duck hunt and hook-a-duck, raffles, plus once again this year Mr. Scotson will be the DJ at the event!
A letter is attached regarding the Summer Fun Day Grand Raffle; once again this year there are some amazing prizes to be won including a signed framed Man City shirt, £100 Selfridges voucher and a Nintendo DS. Both the grand raffle and the Fun Day are joint PTA and PSG events however we need to draw attention to two differences in the run up to the Fun Day…
In return for all your generous donations the juniors will be having an own clothes day on Friday 23th June (this is different from the date of the Infants) we also ask if all your donations could be brought in on this day.
On Friday 23thJune there will be a ‘drop off point’ at the school entrance in the morning. Your donations really are appreciated and will make a massive difference to the ultimate success of the Summer Fun Day, so please give generously. The Items we need are…
Wine and Spirits
Books and Toys
Spare School Uniform
Home-baking (on morning of Fun Day )
Could you also let the us know if you have a gazebo that is available for us to use on the day, we are obviously hoping for warm weather and many of the stalls require shade ( or rain cover if need be!)
Finally, and most importantly of all, in addition to donations we also require your time! The Fun Day requires lots of volunteers in order to make it happen. Your Class Representatives will be contacting you to ask for your help on the day to run the stalls.
Also, if anybody can help with the collection and organisation of the donations on the Friday mornings prior to the Summer Fun Day, please let the PTA/your Class Rep know as soon as you can.
The Summer Fun Day is one of the PTA’s biggest and most successful money raising events of the year and its success will make an enormous contribution to the school, so thank you in anticipation for your generosity and support!!
