We are very fortunate at Whissendine school to have a PTA that is and has been such an integral part of the school community for many years. Over the years the PTA has raised many thousands of pounds, which have been spent on improving equipment and resources to enhance our children’s education and the facilities in school in general especially the outdoor play areas. We also support the cost of taking the whole school to a pantomime as a Christmas treat.
All parents and members of the local community can get involved if they want to, even if they only have a small amount of time available, and all parents are automatically members of the Association when they join our school.
We organise lots of events throughout the year. Some of these events are run exclusively for the pupils of the school i.e. school discos, film nights, cake raffle etc. However we do organise some larger events which are available for everyone to attend and have in the past been well supported by the community i.e. Easter Egg Hunt, Summer Fete, Bonfire Night etc. This year we have additional events planned like family bingo, race night, pamper evening, Christmas Fair. More details on these events are to follow.
