With the Year 7 and Year 8 Disco, refreshments at seven separate parent and prospective parent events and of course our new Bollywood evening... Townley PTA have had a busy start to the year!
We have been delighted to welcome our new teacher representative, Ms Mitchem, as well as lots of new Committee members and want to thank all our parent volunteers for their hard work and dedication this term. Thanks to their fundraising efforts, the PTA have been able to fund a number of items which will benefit Townley students: the materials for the Black History Month exhibition, which all Year 8s took part in, as well as smart Townley Ambassador sashes for the student guides at Open Events and a huge selection of Year 7 English books, Year 9 English textbooks and A Level English textbooks.
Next term we will be setting up an online ordering system for Townley second-hand uniform sales, making it simple to order second-hand uniform items from the PTA and pay for them online.
The Townley PTA Facebook community continues to grow, putting parents in touch with each other and allowing them to share information and parent-to-parent advice about life with a teenager! To join our community or ask a question simply like the page at https://www.facebook.com/PTATownley/
Running a successful PTA requires one main ingredient, which is YOUR support. Helping at one of our many events, turning up and supporting the event, being a member of the PTA Committee or obtaining matched funding from your employers – it all counts towards the funds we are able to raise. Help is required at every level; if you are able to give a little of your time to help support the work of the PTA and the education of our children please get in touch by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. We hope to hear from you in 2018!
