Welcome to the Parent Teacher Association at Evelyn Grace Academy
Reminder - The next PTA meeting will be held, Wednesday 12th July 2017. All are welcome to attend.
We are a group of parents and staff whose collective aim is to assist with fundraising to help advance the education of students at Evelyn Grace Academy through the PTA.
We also hold an informal Parents’ Forum that extends the relationship between your child, teachers and other parents: facilitating discussions and feedback on educational and organisational matters at the school.
We would like to encourage all parents/carers to take part as you will have an excellent opportunity to influence fundraising objectives and activities, and provide input on other school matters that collectively affect our children. We are a relatively young group and you would be warmly welcomed as a member.
All parents and staff are automatically members of the PTA and can get involved even if they only have a small amount of time available. Whatever you are able to offer, the school will benefit from your time and you will have the opportunity to become more involved in school life.
We hold meetings each half term, which take place on a Wednesday evening at 6.00pm in the Library and last about an hour.
PTA Fundraising activities to date have included: Cake Sales; Refreshment sales at school events such as concerts, sports day etc; The Giving Machine - online shopping; Clothes recycling and Raffles etc

- Trophies for our Literacy Festival
