Welcome to the PTA section! You can also find us on Facebook ~ https://www.facebook.com/ClandeboyePTA
Our current committee is Donna Stewart, Louise Bannister, Kerry MIskelly, Dawn Fleming, Julie Coulter and Michelle McKee. We are always looking for new ideas and anyone is welcome to attend our meetings to see what we are planning, or if you are interested in getting in involved in any way, just talk to any of the committee or make contact through the school office.
Who are the PTA?
We are parents with children who attend Clandeboye Primary and we volunteer our time throughout the year to holding fundraising events. Some of us volunteer on a regular basis at every event and some of us volunteer time when we are not working or have spare time to help out once or twice throughout the year. As parents we are all automatically part of PTA.
What do we do?
We hold events throughout the year like disco's, fete's, fundraising competitions etc that the children can enjoy and participate in.
What are the fund used for?
Any monies raised are used to enhance the children's school environment by providing items that are not covered by the school budget. In the past we have purchased items like new whiteboards for all the classrooms, blackout blinds. This year we are actively fundraising for the ACTIVATE project to provide playframes in the playground and activity equipment for the playground. You can read more about this on the PTA news section.
Who can join us?
Any parent/carer can and you'd be most welcome, you could join us as a committee member or for a one off event on a no obligation basis. As parents we are all automatically PTA members. We do have a list of members who cannot attend meetings but leave us their contact numbers and they help out for an hour or so at each event.
Who benefits from our work?
Ultimately the children do, they get to enjoy the events as they happen and the funds raised filter back to school to enhance the environment for them.
How do we decide what the funds raised are spent on?
We listen to what the children are saying through their class representatives on the school council and to the parents who speak to us at events, we also listen the views of staff if they feel there is something in particular that would benefit the children within school.
I have a query or would like more information, how do I contact the PTA?
We have a Facebook page which you can find here: https://www.facebook.com/ClandeboyePTA or you can leave your number with the school office and we will contact you.
