The PTA works hard each year to fundraise for extra items and events to enrich the learning experience of the pupils at Lacon Childe School. An annual wish list from teaching staff is given to the PTA of items that fall outside the school's budget; the main aim of the PTA is to bring this wish list to fruition.
This year £3,400 has been spent on a variety of items including:
- £500 on a Workshop Day for English Yr 11s
- £325 on a computerised sewing machine for the textiles dept
- £650 for 5 portable power supplies for the science dept
- £325 for history text books for the new GCSE syllabus
- £450 on geography text books for KS3
- £470 for new gym benches
- £600 on subscription to the online 'MyMaths' program
- £80 for a red carpet for the School Prom
The Borders Classic Bike Show is run each September and we hope to raise even more funds with the Lacon Lottery: a cash draw which runs from March to December every year.
This year we have also introduced a discussion topic at each meeting to enable feedback to the school from parents and carers. A wide range of topics has been covered this year, from the new GCSE grading system, to the pros and cons of homework!
We are appealing for any new parents to come and join our friendly group. If you would like to get involved, we would love to hear from you. Please get in touch with Sarah-Jane, Zoe, Rachel or Iain. New ideas are welcome and we are always grateful for more parents to help, so please come along.
