We are really pleased to announce that we raised £900 (profit) at last week’s Quiz Night. We would like to say a huge thanks to the wonderful quizmaster Jon Heggie who made the night very enjoyable and entertaining. Thanks also goes out to Winton Brewery who gave us a great deal on the very tasty local beer. A special thanks to all our generous raffle donors who helped us raise over £350 on the raffle alone (I’ve included a full list below). And finally, thanks to all those who came along, bought raffle tickets, spent money at the bar and made for a thoroughly enjoyable evening.
Whether you plan to take part in the PTA’s Fun Run on the 24th March, or you simply want to know which places would be good to catch all the action on the day, the PDF map will tell you what you need to know.
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.
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.
