Support the PTA
There are many ways you can support the PTA and the best place to start is by coming to a meeting to find out a bit more about current projects and events and how you might be able to pitch in. Meetings are hosted every half term either by Zoom or at school. Find out more here.
Here are some other ways you can support the PTA or get involved. Most of these won’t take much time, but make a big difference:
We are always looking for help! Join in to help organise an event or help out when needed.
Most jobs only take an hour or two, but can have a real impact.
We have lots of wonderful events planned for 2022/23 and lots to get involved with including a Welcome Event for Year 7s in October, The Chesterton Students’ Christmas Fair, The Summer Bash 2023, and lots, lots more.
- The easiest way to support CCC PTA is by giving via our Enthuse Page. You can make one-off donations, monthly recurring donations, or support campaigns for specific projects. You can even set up your own fundraising challenges!
If you are a UK taxpayer, donations to the PTA are eligible for Gift Aid, so your donation can go even further.
All donations are hugely appreciated, and every penny is spent on projects and equipment to enhance every student’s experience at school. Please do take a few minutes to have a look: https://chestertoncc.enthuse.com/profile
