The PTA (known as Team DG) has been an integral part of the school community for many years. In its time the PTA has raised many thousands of pounds, which have been spent on improving equipment and resources to enhance our children’s education. But it’s much more than just fundraising. The PTA exists to provide closer links between home and school, and is an excellent way to bring staff, parents and friends together socially in support of the school and working towards a common goal.
The PTA meet on a regular basis usually once per half term, with smaller working groups meeting as necessary to organise our bigger events. Our regular events include the Christmas and Summer Fairs, Valentine’s Disco, Easter Egg Hunt and cake sales, but there are many other activities throughout the year which previously have included fashion shows and balloon races.
All parents and members of the school community can get involved if they want to, even if they only have a small amount of time available, and all parents are automatically members of the PTA when they join the school.
There are lots of ways to help and support your child through the PTA, from volunteering to be a Committee Member or Class Representative, attending the meetings, offering to help with any of our events, and of course, attending the events and making any donations of time, money, items for sale, donations for raffles or offers of services and skills etc.
We are always very grateful for any help that is offered, and would like to thank you for your very valuable support which enriches your child’s learning experience and makes their time in school so enjoyable.
