WHAT IS THE PTA?
Humbie PTA exists to fundraise to help support our school. The PTA works closely with the parents and the school and nursery to raise extra funds to enrich our children’s learning. We rely on fundraising to raise money for lots of great stuff! We are also keen to foster a great community and school spirit.
The PTA support the school staff by offering their time and efforts to organise school and community events like the Fireworks Night, Humbie Winter Market, Burns Night, help out at community cafes, set off fireworks, bake cakes, make crafts and all manner of other duties!
We are here to support the children, the parents, the teachers and the community and to help make Humbie Primary School a wonderful place for everyone.
Humbie School & Nursery use money raised from the PTA to enrich the play and learning environment for all of our children.
What does the money pay for?
This academic year the school has asked us to help raise money for the following:
- Major improvements, updates and changes in the nursery room
- After school club (ASC is a charity)
- The Heinemann maths scheme
- School trips and transport
In the last few years we have helped raise money for:
- Lots of new playground equipment including the basketball net, new space hoppers and other outdoor games and activities for both nursery and school
- New books for our library
- School trips
- After School club
