Next meeting is to be confirmed.
Supporting the school: Creswick PTA strives to support the school by raising supplementary funds through a variety of events and initiatives which will help the school provide the best possible learning environment, facilities and opportunities for all the children. The PTA also works with the school to promote a positive and welcoming whole-school community ethos.
Bringing parents together: This is another area where the PTA can help to make a real difference. A variety of opportunities are provided to bring Creswick parents together, whether this is through social events such as quiz nights or the annual fair, or through helping out at school events.
Something for everyone: The PTA has tried to adapt over recent years to take into account everyone's increasingly busy lifestyles, and also the impact of the challenging financial climate on all of us. Work, family and personal commitments often leave us with little time or energy to devote to other things. Hopefully, every parent will find some aspect that they are able to become involved in to support this school.
WHERE DO THE FUNDS GO?
Creswick PTA liaises closely with the school to ensure that all PTA funds donated to the school are spent on projects, items or initiatives that will have a noticeable positive impact for the children.
Supporting school projects
The PTA has pledged to donate funds to help the school complete school projects. As and when details of projects become clear, discussions take place to ascertain which specific aspects would most benefit from PTA funding. Parents are regularly kept informed about major school developments via emails and the school newsletter. Each year the PTA helps fund the Christmas pantomime, Year 6 trip hats and books for the library. The PTA put money towards the climbing frame that we built in 2012.
