Dear Parents and Carers

A very warm welcome to our school PTA

Next meeting Tuesday 6th October 2015

All parents and members of the school community can get involved in the PTA. Even if they only have a small amount of time available, all parents are automatically members when their children join our school.

The PTA exists to provide closer links between home and school. It is a fun way to bring staff, parents and students together in support of a common goal. Currently, our efforts are focused on raising money to purchase sustainable benches and improving the outside space for students.

We meet on the first Tuesday of each month from 6.30 pm in the Learning Resource Centre. If you think this is something you would like to know more about, please come along to our next meeting on Tuesday 6th October 2015 in the LRC at 6.30pm. The agenda for the meeting is attached.

Alternatively, if you would like further information, please contact Gemma Powell, Assistant Headteacher and PTA link, on gpowell@brakenhale.co.uk

PTA Annual General Meeting (AGM) Tuesday 3 rd November 2015 at 6.30pm in the LRC

The Annual General Meeting (AGM) of The Brakenhale School PTA, will take place on Tuesday 3rd November 2015. The evening will commence at 6.30 pm with the PTA Annual General Meeting, followed by the monthly PTA meeting in the school’s Learning Resource Centre. Refreshments will be provided. The PTA plays a vital part in the school community and all parents/carers and staff, as members of the PTA, are invited to support the AGM. This is your chance to hear and see how the funds you have helped to raise have been used for the benefit of the students at our school. Without the PTA there would be no school discos, no Family Fun Day or Christmas Market and no monies raised to support projects such as the purchase of the new school minibus. Please see overleaf for some of this year’s up-coming events. As a school we value all the effort and hard work of the PTA to raise money for the school’s benefit.

The AGM will cover a report from the Chair and Treasurer, and is also an opportunity for you to elect the PTA Committee, to represent the Association throughout the forthcoming academic year. Please bring nominations for existing committee members willing to stand for re-election and for anyone wishing to stand as Committee Member for the first time to the AGM meeting.

Formal committee positions are: Chair, Vice Chair, Treasurer and Secretary. The current Chair and Vice Chair will be standing for re-election. Please bring your reply/nomination slip (attached) to the meeting with you.

Your presence is valued and we do look forward to seeing you on Tuesday 3 rd November. If you are unable to attend the meeting but wish to express an interest in the PTA please either email me at gpowell@brakenhale.co.uk or telephone the school on 01344 423041 and leave a message for me.

Yours faithfully
