The PPSA is a charity run entirely by volunteers, organising events and projects. We raise much needed money to improve facilities at the school and to help create a happy, friendly, fun and supportive environment. We run events like the Summer and Christmas Fayres, the Popcorn Cinema Club, discos, pre-loved clothes, books and DVD sales, dress down days, family activity days, and we help create and sell special gifts! Last year we raised thousands of pounds for the school which funded a number of projects including new playground structures and furniture, a full school Christmas lunch at Marlborough College, science tours and IT equipment. Everyone who has a child at Preshute Primary School is automatically a member of the PPSA and we value everything that is done to help the school. If you are a new parent to the school, please get in touch with us on the email below so we can help you with any information you require.
We have a hard working and determined committee, supported by parents in all years of the school. As of the AGM Sept 2015, it is chaired by Emma Playfair and Lindsay Barkholt. Louise Seddon is Secretary, Emma Doughty is Treasurer and Clare Dimond, Rachel Foy and Saleha Pinhorn are committee members.
Many companies now run schemes in which they will match the funds raised or time spent on charitable activities by employees. A number of Preshute parents have taken advantage of such schemes and have made an enormous difference to the amount of money we raised last year. We request that everyone who works for a company enquires with their Managing Director, HR or Corporate Citizenship department whether match funding is a possibility and what the requirements are. The PPSA committee will work with you to help you secure this funding for the school. It makes a big difference with very little extra work.
We are now actively looking for enthusiastic volunteers to add to our merry band. Whether you are a brilliant cake maker, excellent tea pourer, creative arty type, good grafter or organiser extraordinaire we would love to hear from you. Giving an hour of your time here or there on an adhoc basis really does make a difference. If you are interested in being a part of this great team or would like to know more please email firstname.lastname@example.org or speak to one of the committee.
Watch this space!
Have a root around your garage or loft and see if you have anything that you don't need any more and someone else might like to buy.
