We at the Hale Academy PTA (Parent Teachers Association) welcome you to this fantastic school! The PTA are a friendly bunch of parents, guardians and teachers who come together to host fun and engaging activities for the school and local community. Whilst doing this we aim to raise much needed money for the school and also provide fun filled memories for the children and families of the school. We meet regularly, and work closely with the school with what we support.
Look out for your invitation to the Hale Academy PTA AGM. It’s a chance to meet the committee, find out what we do and share your fund-raising ideas to support our school. And hopefully this year we can meet in person with cheese and wine!
Despite the challenges over the last year, we have arranged virtual events that have been enjoyed by everyone. The money raised allows us to fund the Year 2 pantomime, the Year 6 Lion King trip, provide plants to make the school look great and equipment to support the classes and teachers.
We raise money through shopping donation websites such as Amazon Smile and Give as You Live. Further details are below, please check them out, we have raised over £400 through these sites!
The Hale Academy PTA hold the second-hand uniform. A list of what we have in stock is below along with the price list. If you would like any items either email the PTA at firstname.lastname@example.org or send a private message through the Hale School PTA Facebook page.
On behalf of the PTA,
Steph Everitt – Chair of Hale Academy PTA
We would like to give notice of the AGM of the Hale PTA, to be held on 23rd September 2021 at 19:30. The evening will have Cheese, Wine and other refreshments and the PTA Annual General Meeting, in the main school hall.
The PTA plays a vital part in the school community and all parents, as members of the PTA, are invited to support the AGM. This is your chance to hear and see how the funds you have helped to raise have been used for the benefit of the children at our school.
The AGM is also an opportunity for you to elect the PTA Committee, who represent the association throughout the forthcoming year. Nominations should be sent in advance of the AGM for anyone wishing to stand as an Officer or Ordinary Committee Member, for the first time. Existing committee members wishing to stand for re-election do not have to be nominated again but should inform the PTA of their intention to stay in their role.
If you would like any further information about being a Committee Member, please speak to Stephanie Everitt at email@example.com. As our PTA is a registered charity, all committee members automatically become Trustees of the Charity. Before submitting your nomination form, please read the Charity Commission publication ‘The Essential Trustee – What you need to know (CC3)’. A copy of the booklet can be found on the Charity Commission website.
