The PTA is hugely important to our school. We organise many events for the children and families to enjoy, by fundraising. This year the PTA has contributed towards school trips, school plays, and vital resources for the whole school to use. The monies that the PTA raise enables Matching Green to deliver an enriched, varied curriculum for all the children. This year, we were given a ‘Wish List’ from the children and staff alike, of what they’d like us to raise funds for, so our main goal is to get enough support to reach our target to have the playground area extended for the children to enjoy in all weathers.
So far this school year the PTA has organised two Film Nights, a Pumpkin Carving competition, a School Disco, a Christmas fete and grotto, a Quiz Night, Easter crafts and egg hunt and a stall at The May Day Fayre. Events for the rest of the year include a stall at the Matching Green Classic Car Show on Sunday 1st July, refreshments and raffle at our Sports Day on 5th July, and a Family ‘Fun on the Field’ evening (date to be confirmed).
Please see the PTA board in the school corridor for more information, or visit our Facebook group page (please speak to the school office if you would like to be added to this), about what is going on and to see how the PTA donations are making a difference to your child(ren).
