Our Progress

SUMMER TERM 2018

And so, the end of the 2017/2018 academic year, and our first year of running the PTA, is almost upon us. What a busy year
it’s been, with lots to learn and lots to do! But, with lots of help and support along the way, we’ve had a fabulous year and
are thrilled at our achievements.
Our key aim for the year was to provide activities and events that were fun for both children and adults, whilst also helping
raise additional funds for both of our schools. By enabling our schools to purchase materials/equipment and fund projects
beyond the scope of standard school budgets, we are able to enhance our schools and thereby the learning environment of
our children.
Our fundraising target for the year was £20,000 and we are extremely pleased to let you know that we smashed that target,
raising over £21,000, via the following activities and events:
Discos
Movie nights
Cake sales
Christmas Fair
Panto tickets
Christmas cards
Table top sale
Bag2School
Surrey Half Marathon
Race night
Quiz night
Summer Fair
Dads Camping
Thanks so much to everyone who has contributed in some way, thereby helping us to make this happen. The Junior School is
looking forward to purchasing more iPads with a portion of the monies raised, alongside some outside chalkboards. The Lower
School is in the process of refurbishing the Learning Resource Library and turning it into a stunning Woodland Forest themed
area. The first stage of the building work and the forest floor is going to be completed over the summer holiday.
Good luck to all those moving onto pastures new. We look forward to seeing everyone else back at school in September
ready for another busy 2018-2019 school year!

 

 

SPRING TERM 2018

WE CAN DO IT KNAPHILL SCHOOLS!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Wow!!!!  We are around the £15 000 mark now which is very exciting and only another 5k to smash our target with the Summer Fair, Dads Camping and the Yr 2 Movie night and Lower School Summer Disco to finish off the school year !!

Despite being in the Piazza due to bad weather and under a gazebo on the Junior grounds we still managed to raise and whopping £375 between both schools !  The creations brought in by some very talented family members went down a treat with the kids and grown-ups alike!

Thank you for all your support at the Quiz night,  it was great fun and together we raised £1000 for our schools.

The two movie nights saw the Yr 3-6 enjoying Matilda and School of Rock with their mates ,  cushions and popcorn filled the hall which brought in another £295
Bag2School bagged us a tidy £165 from all your donated clothes – such a good way to do a clear out and boost the PTA pot!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

WINTER TERM 2018

From quiet beginnings, this turned out to be a rather busy term after all, during which you have helped us raise around £5,000 for our schools!  Alongside the more regular movie nights, cake  sales and discos, we also held a Table Top Sale and a Race Night, and had a team of parents take part in the Surrey Half Marathon.

BIG CONGRATULATIONS to all our Surrey Half Runners. Not only did you complete the race, but you’ve also helped raise over £1000 (incl. Gift Aid) for our schools.

Thanks once again to all of you who came and helped make 2018’s race night an enormous success! The sum total raised is £1450.
Thanks to everyone – from those who always help behind the scenes, to those who helped set up, to the totes wonderful totes helpers, to those who tidied away throughout the evening and everyone who helped clear up at the end. You are a truly fabulous bunch of people and did our schools proud!!.
Thank you  for all  your generous donations throughout the evening, and to those of you who returned your winnings to the pot – we are truly grateful for that!
Although the food delivered wasn’t exactly as ordered, we hope you all enjoyed it!

A slightly quieter half term but we have hosted 2 super fun movie nights raising almost   £385  selling lots of popcorn, sweeties and of course hotdogs while our Yr 3-6 children enjoyed a movie with their friends in make-shift beanbag sofa’s!

A table top sale which was a bit low in footfall and we had hoped for more support from our children and parents from both schools  however the event itself had amazing value for money items, very enthusiastic sellers and the parents enjoyed a cuppa and cake while the kids took to designing sand art creations which in turn  raised us approximately £291.90 in total!   Certainly an event we may re-visit in future!

Our  Valentines Cake sale where our families WOW’d us once again with their gorgeous creations  helped us raise another £260!

We are now at roughly  over £9000……only £11 000 more to raise for our children and the school!!

Thank You for every little bit of support given to the PTA team and toward monies raised for the schools.
