Chalfont St Giles Infant School & Nursery PTA
Hello and welcome to the Chalfont St Giles Infant School and Nursery PTA which
was established to raise funds for the school and to provide social activities for its
parents and pupils. As well as fundraising, the PTA serves as a valuable link
between the school, the parents and the students.
We are passionate about our school and raising money to help enrich our children’s
education. The money we raise helps to pay for additional resources and equipment,
which all of the children directly benefit from.
Typical events that we might hold include the Kids Christmas Parties, Wreath-
Making Evening, Pamper Evenings, Curry and Quiz Night, Family Breakfast Cafes,
Playground Sales and the main event, our annual Strawberry Fayre.
Please do keep an eye on Classlist for details of what’s going on this term!
You can contact us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or via ClassList
(www.classlist.com), which we use as our primary communication tool and for
tickets sales to all of our events.
In 2021/2022 you helped us to raise an amazing £17,974, which has:
covered areas and pond clearing
In 2022/2023 our target is to raise £12,000, but we need your help. Our fundraising
focus this year is to:
