Parent Teacher Association (PTA)

April 2019:

Dear Parents/ Carers,

Here at MIPS we have a very enthusiastic bunch of parents who are hugely involved in our PTA . We provide support for our school and our children.   PTA meetings are an excellent way of meeting other parents and getting involved in your child’s education.

 

Here is a quick update on how our PTA has been performing and our plan for the last 12 weeks of this school year.  Where has this year gone??

Our PTA has had an excellent fundraising year.   From our ‘Trick & Treats Party’ to ‘A Night at the Races’ our PTA has been hugely successful.  Monies raised from events so far totals £5800! An amazing amount for such a small school.

The final fundraising event for this school year will be our annual Summer Fair.   This has been a great success over the past few years, even the weather has been kind to us.   Preparations will begin at our next PTA meeting on Friday 12th April @ 1.15pm.   If you are free please come along, we are always welcoming to new,  fresh ideas.   Let’s make this our best Fair yet!

 

Within the PTA we have a small group working to explore grants that may be available to schools.   If anyone has any knowledge within this field please speak with Paula Barr.

 

Throughout the year we have spent a healthy sum on updating our reading materials.   With pupil numbers increasing massively each year we desperately needed to increase our quantity of reading books.   We have had other small spends on school necessities.   We are very fortunate to have a vast amount of space for outdoor play.   We are planning on investing monies to purchase playground equipment for all pupils to enjoy.

 

Our school garden was on our PTA Agenda for this year.   It needed a mini facelift and lots of TLC.   With the amazing help from Halifax and the Ulster Bank, using their ‘give a day’ programme, it has been transformed.   There has been an amazing amount of support and time offered by parents and local business (all named in school newsletter) so on behalf of our very grateful PTA, THANK YOU!

 

Onwards and upwards ….. fingers crossed before this school year is out we should have the outside of the school cleaned and painted in our school colour purple.   We have a lot to discuss and plan at our next PTA meeting Friday 12th April @ 1.15pm in the school library.   It would be fantastic to see and meet more of our parents.   If you can, please come along and join in the craic.

Best wishes

Kate McVeigh, Chair of PTA
