Hello and welcome to our St. John’s PTA page!
We are a group of like minded parents and family members associated with the school who look to put on events and raise money to help enrich our children’s education and time at St. John’s as much as we can.
We have lots of great events throughout the year from school discos, Easter egg hunts, a lovely summer fayre and fireworks to name but a few. Every event is run and organised by a PTA member and supported by lots of willing volunteers.
Sound fun? We would love you to get involved – please do contact Carla Parry or one of the many PTA group via the office or playground and see how you could join in. Join us on Facebook for all of the latest and up to date news on events and help require
Current projects & where our current funding is going:
We have recently supported the school by investing in some lovely outdoor instruments which will shortly be going up around the woodland area – look out for this exciting new equipment – the children are going to love this fun addition to play time.
The Land’s End to John O’ Groats cycle ride by two school Dads (Tony Green and Kevin Grant) raised a fantastic £3800. The school have bought a fun story house and climbing wall with this money and again this will be put up soon so watch this space for this exciting environment change on the lower playground.
In the winter term at the end of 2018 the children were treated to a fantastic performance of Beauty and the Beast by M & M Productions. The feedback was lovely and the children thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
