Our great logo was designed by some of the children and the words ‘lend a hand’ really sum up what we would love everyone to do!
We have the following aims:
Raise money for school projects that will benefit our children
Encourage as many parents as possible to have an active part in their child’s school in a practical way
Provide a means whereby families can meet and socialise in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere
Build relationships and friendships within our school community
Encourage involvement with the PTA that is both enjoyable and rewarding
Everyone can be a member:
Every parent, carer, member of staff is automatically a member of the PTA and we want everyone to feel as if they are a part of it.
We love to have Parent representatives in each class
There is no prerequisite skill set required, the more diverse in terms of skills and personalities the better.
Why we raise money:
The staff at Rougham are never short of a wish list of things that they would like, to enhance the children’s learning and school environment and we are always very pleased to be able to grant their requests. As well as providing some fantastic gymnastics equipment and a large range of music instruments for class music lessons we are currently looking to help fund a sound system for the new hall and some more outdoor seating for our grounds.
We call on the strengths of so many different people in our activities, some up front and some in the background, dependent upon what people are willing to do. We would love you to support our future fundraising and community projects in the future. Please contact the PTA via the school email address.
Big thanks to everyone for supporting our recent quiz night and raising £255.95! A great night was had by all, with fish and chips, cakes, and some tricky questions posed by quiz master Terry Jennings. Congratulations to team “hot chicks” for winning! This event will be repeated next year so please come along.
Thanks to all who donated to Bags2school. We haven't had a final figure of money raised yet, but will keep you posted.
Ice lolly Fridays start this Friday, 16th June, and will run every Friday until July 14th. A choice of ice lollies will be on sale 3pm each Friday in the playground at £1 each – please support your school!
SUMMER FETE - 8th JULY 11.30am - 2.30pm
A reminder of our biggest fundraiser of the year- the summer fete- which this year will be on 8th July. So far we have great games, tractors, fire engines, martial arts display, electric car rides, reflexology, drinks, cakes, BBQ all confirmed.
To make things extra special there are a few “pleas” we would like to make. Does anyone love barbecuing? We need someone/people to run the BBQ. Last year this raised over £300, so it would be a shame not to have it.
We would love to run a tug of war competition- if anyone would like to organise this and/or run on the day, please let us know. (We have a rope!)
Bales of straw would be a great addition around the main ring- please contact us if we could borrow some for the day.
Does anyone have a rowing machine we could use for a rowing challenge at the fete?
Lastly does anyone work for a company who does match Funding? This could greatly help our fete and be great advertising for the company!
If you know anyone would like a stall selling crafts, gifts, smellies, etc. please contact us.
And Cuddly toys, puzzles, second hand uniform, raffle prizes/silent auction offers etc… are all very welcome please! Look out in book bags for raffle tickets soon.
A BIG THANK YOU to everyone who supports our fundraising events, which we hope are fun for both children and adults alike. This year so far we have helped pay for new books and stools, and towards the new car park, and now hope to help pay for climbing apparataus which all children will have access to in the school field.
As always, feedback is appreciated so we ensure we host the right events for everyone.
