About Our PTA
St. Anne’s benefits from a flourishing PTA which organises fundraising activities throughout the year. All parents in the school are invited to become members upon payment of a small subscription. The committee always welcomes new members and very warmly welcomes new ideas.
We run a number of popular events for both parents and children. Those for children include the Christmas disco, Christmas raffle, Easter raffle, ‘S Factor’ show and, one of the children’s favourites, the annual Fun Day. This is held towards the end of the summer term and the children enjoy a whole school picnic, bouncy castles, games and a variety of activity stalls. Parents can enjoy our quiz nights throughout the year and the bi-annual summer ball.
The payment of subscriptions enable us to focus on ‘fun’ rather than ‘fundraising’ and also enables us to contribute towards several major school projects, such as, the installation of Astroturf on the football pitch and the purchase of the outdoor classroom, both of which are used regularly by the children.
Donations are also given to the school for the purchase of new books for the library, coding programs for ICT lessons, and sporting equipment. The PTA also run the second hand uniform sale which is normally held on the last Friday of each half term.
