PTA

Parent Teacher Association

The aim of the PTA is to support the education of our children at Lytchett Minster School. We do this by assisting the School with funds and resources not normally provided by Local Government funding. It attempts to foster more extended relationships between the staff, parents and others associated with the school. All parents are automatically members of the PTA.

Fundraising events are held throughout the school year. For the coming year these will include a Christmas Bazaar, Quiz Nights and Bingo, as well as refreshments at various school productions and events. There is also an after school Tuckshop which is held once a month.

The PTA have set up a Second-hand Uniform Shop. The shop opens once a month and parents are invited in to buy good quality second-hand items at reasonable prices. If you have any surplus uniform that you wish to donate, please hand this in to Main School Reception, clearly labelled for the attention of the PTA. The shop opening dates are published on the monthly KIT newsletter.

Your support at events is always very much appreciated. An additional way funds are raised is by way of a voluntary donation scheme.

Lytchett Minster School has a friendly and lively PTA organisation. If you would like to join us, please come along to one of our meetings (dates and times are published on the KIT newsletter). Any comments or enquiries may be made directly to the Chairperson, Louise Christopher, at louise.christopher@sky.com.
