We hope you're all enjoying the Christmas Productions, with one more to go on Monday. There's still time to order Photos and DVDs and buy a Raffle Ticket or several! We have some wonderful prizes to be won with the draw being made following Monday's performance and the PTA will notify the winners... Good Luck!
Old or Foreign Coins:
If you're jetting overseas this Christmas, please remember that the PTA collects all foreign currency, present and past, for turning into valuable funds. Please bring in any foreign coins or notes plus check your pockets, sofas and the man-drawer for any old £1 coins! The collection bucket is in the office.
Upcoming PTA Events in January:
During the week of 15th January, we will be asking all the children in each Year Group to take it turns to donate ONE toy to the PTA. More information will be sent out in January, but we wanted to give you a chance to source any unwanted, good quality toys. Please bear us in mind if you're having a clear-out over Christmas! We shall also be asking for donations of any good quality dress-up costumes - World Book Day will be just around the corner and it might be an idea to donate any unwanted costumes!
Friday 26th January is the date of our next Breakfast Cafe - please put the date in the diary.
As you may already be aware we joined JustGiving the fundraising platform as a charity last year. We raised an amazing amount - over £4,000 to be spent on IT equipment for the school for a specific campaign.
We just wanted to send a reminder to all the parents who partake in events, or just want to create a page to raise money for the school, that it’s very simple to do on JustGiving.com all year round.
Just choose your event and select Chalfont St Giles School as the charity. Any amount raised will be paid directly to us and include additional GiftAid if applicable which is almost 20% on your fundraising!!
This is a very simple and effective way to fundraise and means a huge amount to the school and PTA. Especially if you are part of a corporate matching scheme which your page may be eligible for. Double the benefit !
So next time you're running a 5k or Swimming the Channel or jumping out of a plane and people might give you a few pounds, please consider us as your chosen charity it is so simple to do :)
... Thank you to everyone who has supported the PTA so far during this last Term. We greatly appreciate all your support and help - and especially the Mums and Dads who have given their time to help us at various events. We look forward to your continued contributions in 2018!
