AWelcome to Cam Hopton Parent Teachers Association!
What we do.......
Last year saw the biggest success yet and the amazing Cam Hopton community did an incredible job of raising just over £16K for the PTA Pot. Well done one and all!
Donations to the school this academic year were in excess of £22K!!! which included:
- £8423.40- A fantastic new Playground (from money raised 2016-2017)
- £700- extra classroom resources (£100 per class)
- £210- gifts from Santa (£30 per class)
- £600- New DT Equipment,
- £1850- Laptop lease
- £418 -Science Week resources
- £105- Art materials per class from the Scrap Store
- £100 -Reception Dinosaur Workshop
- £50 – Sports day ice lollies
- £8998 – Outdoor Classroom
That is a staggering £21,454.40 – it really does make an enormous difference for our little people and their school experience.
But there is more to the PTA than just fundraising.... Equally importantly, we like to have fun! We hold a number of events during the year, some at the school and some around and about Cam and Dursley, which provide an opportunity to meet other parents and for the children and adults to enjoy themselves.
Getting involved is one way you can take an active role in your child's education and development at Cam Hopton; and of course, it is up to you to decide when and how much! Whether you just want to come along and help out at some of the events, or put your name forward for the committee, the more "horsepower" we can put into PTA events, the more enjoyable and successful they will be - and consequently, the more money we can raise to help fund resources and amenities for our children.
So take a look at our calendar, come along to some of the events, and if you're able to help in any way, please contact us.
Don't forget to catch up with all our news on the Cam Hopton PTA Facebook page or via our newsletter and parentmail notices.
If you have any suggestions or feedback (good or bad) we really would like to hear from you!
Here's to another successful year ahead and thank you for your continued support
