We were delighted to attend the recent official opening of the new facilities on the field, which the PTFA helped to fund. This was only made possible through the support given by everyone in the Widey Court Community. Thank you all for being a part of it!We are also very pleased to have recently funded 10 Apple TV's which work in conjunction with iPads in the classrooms and help to enhance the children's learning experience. Again, thank you all!
These are some of the things the PTFA funded or part funded over the last couple of years. They include Numicon Maths equipment, a makeover of the Year 2 outside area, a new projector for the school hall, ipads, friendship benches, a trip to Woodlands, the Year 6 leavers' barbecue and a mosaic the children helped to make.
We also ran events including discos, the Christmas and Summer fayre, Easter Egg trail, movie night and an adults' quiz night.
We need your help to make these things happen! Without new committee members, the PTFA cannot function so come along to our AGM on 28th September at 6:30 pm for a 7 pm starts (free tea, coffee and biscuits provided) As the end of the school year approaches we would like to say a huge 'THANK YOU' to everyone for supporting the PTFA and all the events which we have held. It's been a busy 11 months with two large Fayres, two Discos, an Easter Egg Trail, a Quiz Night, a Magic Show, a Fashion Show, selling school wear and organising fundraising Christmas Cards! Overall, we have raised over £8000! The money raised has been put to very good use in various places around the school. To recap, we have either wholly or partially funded: The new shelter and seating area beside the middle playground IPads and cases The Year 3 outside area improvements Vinyl graphics for Foundation Equipment for Gardening Club Materials for Creative Club Role play resources for Year 1 Bins and composters for the Eco Council Coach for the Year 6 Woodlands trip Year 6 Leavers BBQ Training course for the provision of a new yoga, well-being and mindfulness initiative and most recently, new materials and equipment for Breakfast Club. So you will see, the money raised really does make a difference and we are grateful for all donations and contributions to enable this to happen. FASHION SHOW Thank you everyone who contributed to making our first Fashion Show such a great success, it was a lovely evening and lots of positive feedback has been received. AGM This year's PTFA has been brought to you, as always, by an enthusiastic, hard-working and dedicated Committee. We are lucky enough to have also had a small but fantastic loyal band of support network volunteers to assist us along the way. The staff and families of the school have also been brilliant and we appreciate each and every one of you! Between us all, it has been a great year, we hope you have enjoyed it too! Next term, we will need to elect a Committee for the new school year. If you are interested in coming on board or just helping out occasionally as part of the support network then we would love to see you.
