The PTA works hard each year to fundraise for extra items and events to enrich the learning experience of the pupils at Lacon Childe School. An annual wish list from teaching staff is given to the PTA of items that fall outside the school's budget; the main aim of the PTA is to bring this wish list to fruition.
This year we have been able to fund the following:
- Maps for D of E programme
- Drills for Resistant Materials
- Power packs for Science
- Netbook computers for student support
- Rotatrim machine for Art
The Borders Classic Bike Show is run each September and we hope to raise even more funds with the Lacon Lottery: a cash draw which runs from March to December every year.
This year we have also introduced a discussion topic at each meeting to enable feedback to the school from parents and carers. A wide range of topics has been covered this year, from the new GCSE grading system, to the pros and cons of homework!
We are appealing for any new parents to come and join our friendly group. If you would like to get involved, we would love to hear from you. Please get in touch with Sarah-Jane, Zoe, Rachel, Sharon or Sarah. New ideas are welcome and we are always grateful for more parents to help, so please come along.
