pta-annual-general-meetingThe PTA’s Annual General Meeting was staged on Thursday 13th October and fond goodbyes to the retiring long-standing Chair, Philip Burke (though he is still keeping a hand in), were matched with cheery hellos to our new Chair Sonia Short. Indeed, all of the committee’s main posts were successfully filled – see photo with (left to right) Laura Manz (Bar Manager), Sonia Short (Chair), Janet Hickman (Secretary) and Karen Morris (Treasurer).

The meeting was well-attended and huge enthusiasm brought a commitment to hit an ambitious £10,000 target through a wide range of events which have bene mapped out through the school year.

Lottie Hearn, Assistant Headteacher, said: “The PTA are a fantastic group who we are lucky to have making a real difference in our school. Having parents actively on board is the sign of a strong school and I know the Chair, Sonia, would join me in encouraging parents to join up and come along to our next meeting at the school on Thursday 10th November at 6.30pm”.
