On the hunt for bugs and slugs

Yesterday the nursery children spent an energetic morning raising funds for the PTA by doing a sponsored walk.  It was a beautiful autumnal morning and the children kitted out  in wellies and with their faces painted followed at trail through the woods, finding items, looking for wildlife and searching for frogs.  Spurred on with songs and games, the children made it back to the nursery for a celebratory medal.  Well done boys and girls and a huge thank you to the PTA and many many parents who joined us on the walk.

Remember, remember the 5th of November!

Parent and Teachers Association Newsletter Autumn Term 2011

Autumn Term 2011

I am delighted to introduce a new PTA team for 2011/12 to bring lots of exciting activities and fundraisers to the village this year. We are lucky to have 13 parent members along with Mrs Rodger and Mrs Campbell our two staff members.

Thanks to the size of the team we are very nearly able to provide each class with one or more representatives to whom you may feedback suggestions, volunteer your services or quiz about the up and coming fundraisers. The only year group who hasn’t managed this is the parents of the P6 children. Continue reading “Parent and Teachers Association Newsletter Autumn Term 2011”

Taking part in your Parents and Teachers Association

Dear Parent / Carer,

Now, more than at any other time, the role of the PTA in ensuring our children get the best from their time at Pencaitland Primary School is paramount. With increasing costs and decreasing funding the need for the whole of the school community to contribute to getting the best for our children is greater now than it ever has been. During the last school year PTA funding for trips, equipment, Christmas festivities, French Club and assorted projects, for both nursery and school children, amounted to over £6,000. Without the PTA these things would not have been possible.
