Let’s turn these frowns upside down
The St. Joseph's school PTA have always achieved a good level of fundraising and been able to fund/part fund projects and activities run by the school. The PTA have done this with a range of events such as school discos, film nights and camp outs (as well as many more).
During 2020 and now into 2021 with the COVID-19 pandemic, all the events and activities the PTA would usually organise. have unfortunately not been unable to go ahead, and with continued restrictions we are not sure when we will be able to plan these again.
With this in mind, the PTA have decided to create an online platform to showcase its fundraising objectives. We are hoping that with this new fundraising tool we will be able to reach out not just to our pupils, families and friends, but to also reach out to the wider community, highlighting the projects which need our help the most and then create and provide resources to support our children in their learning and school environment.
We are currently raising funds towards a new wooden trail for the playground. The cost of this could be as much as £10,000. This is a much needed replacement which would be enjoyed by all pupils at the school as well as being used by the St Joseph’s preschool and Out of school club.
