Welcome Back

Here we are at the start of another school year and with the summer now a distant memory, it is time to start thinking about events and fundraising for the school.

Over the summer break I am sure you all will have noticed that the pirate ship play area received a much needed upgrade and is now a fantastic play and climbing area for all the children to enjoy.  Any parents that drop off or pick up near there will know just how popular it is, as all the children seem to flock to it each day.

This upgrade would not have been possible without your generous donations over the past 12 months.  Thank you for your support.

Our next focus is on the KS2 playground and field area.

 

Annual General Meeting

We would like to invite all parents and carers to our annual general meeting on Friday 13th October 2017, at 2:45pm in the Elliot Building.  We are doing things a little differently this year and with the permission of Mrs Walsh and the school, we have hijacked Tea@3 for that week.  This meeting is where all members of the Friends committee are voted in and we provide a brief review of the year gone and discuss future fundraising and events.  

We are loosing half of our committee this year, which will have a big impact on the number of events we can run.  We are looking for more parent support - you can help!

If you would like to get involved with the Friends, whether it is just 'as and when' you are free, or on a more committed basis, then please do get in touch with the school and we can send you further details.

Below is a parent helper form, which can be completed at anytime and simply handed into the office.  We will then add you to our database and call on you if we need help with anything, however there is no obligation.

Also attached is a committee voting form.  If you would like to join the committee you need to complete this form and ask two people to sign it.  If you are thinking of joining us PLEASE contact Katharine Wiltshire, or leave your details with the office before the AGM on the 13th.  We cannot vote in new members of the committee after this date.

How can you help?

If you would like to help raise some money for the school and can spare some time on a regular basis to do anything from bake cakes, make decorations, set up for events or run a stall at a fayre, then become a Registered Helper.  We will keep your details on a database and contact you before each event to check your availability.  You are not required to help at every event and can choose how you would like to help us.  Simply complete the Registered Helper Form on this page and return it to the school.

For a more involved roll each year we invite parents and carers to join our Friends committee.  This involves attending committee meetings and helping to decide what events we will host each year and how we spend the money raised.  For further details please contact the committee Chair, Katharine Wiltshire or email us at the address below.

How to contact us
You can contact us by email at pta@wheatfieldprimary.com or alternatively leave a note with the school office and we will be in touch.

All our latest forms and flyers are available on this page.  Please see the school newsletters for updates on events and how we are spending the money raised.
