- A big Thank you to Lisa for working with Ian Scott Photography on last October's Family Photo Shoot; with all the final orders and payments now in - this has raised £466 for the PTA. The sale of discounted Harpenden Pantomime tickets via the PTA just before Christmas raised £132 for us - thank you so much to Julia for coordinating this. A further £80 was raised via the Christmas Tree shop.
- Thank you to everyone who shopped and supported us!
- Next time you shop online, don't forget to click through first from Easyfundraising and raise funds (at no cost to you) for Wood End School PTA www.easyfundraising.org.uk/causes/woodendschoolpta/
- If you need name labels, you can also raise money for the PTA (!) - please look at our Commissions and Donations page on the school website to find out more.
Your PTA needs you!
We really need some more volunteers to come forward and organise and coordinate some more events in 2019. Responsibilities can be shared over a team of people and we have lots of past knowledge to share and can provide plenty of support.
We're always looking for new ideas but also have 2 previously popular events; Kids Movie Night and a Summer Event (previously a Fair but it could be something completely different) that we'd love to see happen again this year but we cannot run them without a coordinator (or small team).
-> Do read below for details on our upcoming dates, and have a look at our other pages on this site including:
- Details of how to earn commission for the PTA via online shopping
- Who's who and how to contact us
- Can you lend a hand?
