Welcome to King Edward VI School PTA. The PTA is made up of parents and teachers from the school with the main purpose of raising funds to support projects that will benefit students. We meet approximately 6 times within the school year in Bader Bistro, with meetings starting at 7 pm.
We are always keen to see new parents at the meetings. If you are not able to make the meetings but would like to help out, either on a one-off or regular basis, we would love to hear from you. Any suggestions, ideas or questions can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have a particular skill or company that you think could help the PTA, please do let us know. Whilst the PTA committee currently comprises a dedicated team of parents and staff, the future of the PTA is very much dependent upon us keeping the flow of new members coming through as parents step down when their children leave the school. If you feel you want to get involved, please email the PTA or come along to a meeting. Thank you for your ongoing support.
Some of the projects that we have recently contributed towards are:
Annual donation towards the maintenance of the school minibus
Chairs and carpet for anti-bullying room
Trophies and engraving for Saxon Hill
Duke of Edinburgh Licence
1st team Rugby Hoodies
Basketball hoop for the sixth form
Author visit to the LRC
We have committed to contribute towards:
Sound system for Bader Hall
PTA noticeboard in Bader Bistro
Accelerated reader scheme for year 7 (LRC)
Dates for your diary
Our next meeting is on Tuesday 6 June 2017 at 7 pm in Bader Bistro. It’s a great way to get to know some parents and learn more about what is happening at school!
The PTA will be organising food and refreshments at the Summer Festival on Thursday 29 June (4.30pm-8pm). Pop the date in your diary and do come along to have dinner whilst enjoying an interesting and varied programme of events! The money that we raise at this event will go towards buying a much-needed new sound system for Bader Hall – something that the school has been wanting to buy for some time now.
Following the success of the Race Night in February this year, we plan to run a Quiz night which is provisionally booked for Friday 9 February 2018. The Race night raised over £1,000 so please do pop this date in your diary and watch out for more updates nearer the time. It would be brilliant to see as many parents and students at this event as possible to try and raise funds for the school!
Help us raise money while you shop!
The PTA is currently working with the school on the Building Fund Appeal which aims to raise £100,000 by 2018 and which will be used to undertake much-needed building maintenance and improvement work around the school site. We would like to increase the number of parents who are signed up to Easy Funding raising to 500 by September 2018 to help raise money towards the Building Fund Appeal.
Did you know that whenever you buy anything online – from your weekly shop to your annual holiday – you could be collecting free donations for King Edward VI School Lichfield – Parent Teacher Association?
There are over 3,000 shops and sites on board ready to make a donation, including Amazon, John Lewis, Aviva, thetrainline and Sainsbury’s – it doesn’t cost you a penny extra!
- Head to easyfundraising and join for free.
- Every time you shop online, visit easyfundraising first to select the site you want and start shopping.
- After you’ve checked out, that retailer will make a donation to the school for no extra cost whatsoever!
There are no catches or hidden charges – it’s such a simple way to help us support the school.
Thank you for your support.
As we are entering the summer months, remember that the PTA are selling water bottles to students. Our eye-catching, new, limited edition school water bottles, which we launched last summer, are proving really popular. They are on sale from Bader reception and Bader Bistro, priced £4 for the large size and £3 for the small (cash only please). Every bottle sold will generate money for the PTA.
