The PTA of Netherton Northside First School aims to bring together parents, staff and our local community in order to support the school and its students, raise money and have fun. Whenever possible PTA members volunteer their time supporting after school clubs (cookery and gardening), accompanying school trips and helping with transport. Past and forthcoming fundraisers include: auctions; fetes and coffee mornings; nearly new sales; quizzes; bingo nights and beetle drives; cosmetic and kitchen equipment evenings; and participation in the Bags2School scheme.
PTA-raised mony has directly enhanced the school surroundings and the experiences of the children through "extras" such as:
- outdoor play equipment
- library resources
- a new indoor home corner
- school trips
- Christmas gifts
- a storyteller focusing on World War I
- garden plants and supplies
We are always looking for new fundraising ideas and welcome support and involvement from all.
