The PTA raises money for a number of projects that benefit all students of Chesterton Community College. Click here for details of such projects. These projects fall outside of what a school budget can finance.
We raise money in a variety of ways:
- fun events (e.g., quiz night, Burns night)
- refreshments at parents’ evenings
- online or cheque donations
- standing orders
- monthly cash prize draw
- shopping via EasyFundraising
- searching via EasySearch
If you have ideas of how to raise money or would like to run an initiative, please contact us by email email@example.com, we would love to hear from you!
Parents’ Evening Refreshments
Throughout the year the PTA serves refreshments at all the Parents’ Evenings to parents, students and staff. This is always on a Thursday evening and we work in two shifts, 4.30pm to 6pm and 6pm to 7.30pm, with two people on each shift. Tea/coffee/soft drinks and biscuits are provided – just turn up and make drinks/clear/wash up/chat.
This is a great opportunity to get to know the school community, and as there are 9 Parents’ Evenings a year, extra help is always needed!
If you can help contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Cheque or Online Donations Via ParentPay
You can make your donation by writing a cheque or via ParentPay system which will help make the current PTA projects happen! The PTA is a registered charity, so if you are a UK taxpayer, we can make your money go further and claim an additional 25% on top of your donation from the government.
Donations to the PTA by standing order are the most popular way of donating money to the PTA. Over £2000 was contributed in this way in the last year. If you wish to make your donation by standing order or elecronically, our bank account details are as follows:
