Ditchling (St Margaret’s) CE Primary and Nursery Friends, Parents and Teachers Association (FPTA) is made up of a friendly group of parents and teachers, who meet regularly to arrange events fun events and to raise funds for the school. The money raised goes towards buying larger items of equipment which the school budget cannot provide for.
The FPTA is raising funds this year to purchase a new surface for part of the playground and new equipment to go on the playground. This is large expense and will be supported some grant funding the school receives to tackle obesity and increase physical fitness.
To enable us to raise this money we will be holding several events throughout the year these being:
Quiz Nights, School Disco, Cake Sales, second hand uniform sales, Christmas and Summer Fairs and lots more.
We have also received donation a generous donation from the local pub, The Bull.
In previous years we have raised funds to develop the Quiet Area, the pond, purchase items of the new library and install a Trim Trail. The children all benefit greatly from this equipment and really enjoy using it.
We are very lucky to be supported so well by all of the school staff and parents, and of course the children who really enjoy the events that are arranged.
To put on these events WE NEED YOU!
We would love to have new members join the FPTA, or if you would just like to help at any events we would be very grateful of this too. Helping hands to organise, run and, best of all, clear up after events are invaluable. Please see Mrs Jerrey, Mrs Corrigall or a member of the FPTA if you would like to help. So please look out for meeting dates and come along if you can, there is always tea/coffee and biscuits!
