PTA

 Hello! Welcome to St Pius X PTA page! On here you'll find details of upcoming events, photos and maybe even a recipe or two!

 

The PTA are a group of Mums/Grans that try to raise money to spend on extra items for school. Our last big payout was towards the new Reception outside play area (see above photos). Now our coffers are almost bare, so fundraising is the order of the day!

 

We are always on the lookout for fresh faces and fresh ideas, so if you have a little time to spare, or know of any novel ways to raise cash, then please get in touch, we'll be really happy to hear from you.

A huge thank you to all of you who attended the Family Fundraiser in aid of Bowel Cancer Research UK. I hope you agree, it was a great night and a very successful one! Along with the raffle held previously in school, you helped raise a fantastic £527!! Thank you, again, for your amazing support.

Phew! What a couple of busy weeks we've had! There was the Stork & Tabletop sale, the tombola & cake sale in Barrow market and the Christmas Fayre! Again, thanks to all who have supported our events and thanks to all the helpers at the Fayre, especially those that were recruited with minutes to go. It just goes to show, that no matter how many games or stalls we organise, we rely on volunteers to help man them. It stands to reason, the more helpers the more stalls, the more stalls the more money we raise for the children. So please, if you are able to help in any way, contact the school office.

 

From these 3 events, we managed to raise a total of £1031.05!!

Following our Christmas Sing-a-long, we have to say a huge thank you to Denis Horan, for donating his time (and his voice!) and leading us through the evening. Also, thank you, to all those who came along and helped us raise £220. We also auctioned off an Avon goodie basket and a voucher for afternoon tea for 2 at Clarence House, in aid of Bowel Cancer Research UK. This raised a further £37, bringing our grand total for the charity to £564!! Great job everyone!

A huge thank you to everyone who supported any of our fundraising events, over the 2015/16 school year. We managed to bank a total of over £2000!! That's not counting the money raised for Bowel Cancer Research UK, so give yourselves a hearty slap on the back! We've set the bar high for 2016/17, but with your ongoing support, I'm sure we can reach those heady heights again!

The McMillan Coffee Afternoon on the 30th September, raised a staggering £386.70! Well done to all of our cake bakers and providers, the selection on offer was obviously too tempting to pass by. Thank you, also, to all those who helped out on the day, manning the cake tables, pouring endless cups of tea and coffee and then washing up!
