All parents & carers, grandparents, teachers and support staff automatically belong to the school PTA. PTA meetings are open to everyone and anyone can put forward ideas for events or activities. The PTA provides invaluable support organising many social, fundraising and curriculum-linked events that provide essential engagement between the school and the wider community. Money raised by the PTA pays for equipment, activities, and improvement of facilities, which the school would otherwise be unable to afford.
Getting involved in the PTA, either as a committee member or helper, is an excellent way of meeting other parents; testing your creative, social or organisational skills; doing your bit in the community; and providing some wonderful events for pupils, parents, staff and community members alike to enjoy!
If you want to join the PTA committee, have ideas or can help out at an event, please pop into the School Office or drop us an email. Information can also be found on the Garsington PTA Facebook Page.
A huge thank you to all those parents/carers who kindly keep volunteering and helping out at our PTA events!
Projects the PTA have contributed towards include:
£4,000 to carpeting under the outdoor play equipment
£600 towards Literacy Week
£3,000 towards our school-wide wireless internet system

£2,100 for each class to have an iPad
