The PTA is made-up by a group of volunteers (parents and carers) who work 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, plus much more. Donating over £5000 to school in total:
- 7 a-side goals for the PE depatment
- English revision guides and competition prizes
- My-maths subscription contribution
- Bridge camera for the art department
- Guinea pigs and a hutch for student support
- And contributions towards drama, DT, history, science, the library, child development, MFL and geography depatments.
The Borders Classic Bike Show is run each September (this year raising a whopping £5000) and we hope to raise even more funds with the Lacon Lottery: a cash draw which runs from March to December every year.
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, Hannah, Rachel, Sharon or Amie. New ideas are welcome and we are always grateful for more parents to help, so please come along.
