Welcome to the PTA at Mount Pleasant Lane School. As a parent or carer of a child at MPL school you are automatically a member of the PTA. The PTA is here to help raise vital funds for the school to help pay for trips, software, equipment etc. to help enrich the time your child spends at our school. We do this by arranging events such as cake sales, discos, festivals, surprises rooms etc. These events are to raise money, but they also bring our community together, to have fun and meet other parents and children.
As a PTA we always need your help and are very aware of how busy we all are with work, family and general day to day life however, if you can help by giving an hour of your time on a stall at an event or by attending the PTA meetings to offer new ideas, or you can offer to become a committee member no matter how much time you do (or don’t) have we really appreciate any help that you can offer!
Our Current Committee:
Co-Chairs: Katie Holmes and Amanda Mills
Co-Secretaries: Rachel Blomfield and Gemma Murphy
Events so far:
Neon Disco – Friday 8th November
We welcomed children from every year in the school, they looked amazing in neon and their partywear. They danced the night away and a lot of fun was had by all. Thank you to everyone who helped or attended, initial count suggests we have raised £950.
Events to come:
Winter Festival – Friday 6th December
Come to the school festival from 5-7pm for fun and festive games, a fantastic raffle, a tombola, music, stalls to purchase presents for the festive period as well as lots of food and drink. We will be sending out a request for your help on the night and for donations in the next few days. We really hope you can help us to make this event a huge success!
Christmas Surprises room – Friday 13th December
The children love going to spend their money on presents for the family. Presents range from £1- £4. There is something for all the family so make sure there is lots of space under the tree this year!
We look forward to arranging more fun activities in the New Year and if you have any ideas please email us or come to the next meeting to share them and help make this year’s fundraising for our school the best so far!
We will be having a meeting to discuss the Christmas festival in the next week or two so please look out for an email.
Many thanks for your help and support.
