Our recent Annual General Meeting provided an overview of the last year. It has been a productive year in which we ran a variety of events which were fun and profitable allowing us to allocate the funds towards various items the children and school, could benefit from. A money tree has begun next to the mailbox, it shows our continuous fundraising and cost of items being bought.
An email address and mailbox have been introduced for ease of communication, email@example.com.
The money raised by the PA has been used to buy items that the Head Teacher and team have identified a need for, working alongside the School Development Plan.
Recent purchases have included;
School Mini Bus £2000
Payment for theatre tickets for the pantomime in December £1039.68
Forest school sessions have cost £720

As you can appreciate, all these events take a lot of organising and the committee relies heavily on the support of all the parents for them to run smoothly. You can help in various ways - join the committee, donate goods (raffle prizes), man a stall, sell tickets, but most of all come along and support our events. We hope you'll feel inspired to join the PA in any way that you can, sharing in the fun and rewards of being part of the Totternhoe School community.
Thank you for your continued support .
