Greenway Academy PTA
Welcome to Greenway Academy PTA
Our next meeting is on 27th Feb, 8.00pm at Greenway
As a parent or carer of a child at the school you are automatically a member of our Parent Teacher Association. We hope the following information will give you some idea of who we are, what we do for your children (and you) at the school and how you can get involved.
Who are we?
We are a registered charity made up of a small team of Parents/ Carers and we are all volunteers. There are currently 10 of us on the committee including the current Chair - Alex (Yr5 parent), Treasurer - Moira (Yr6, Yr4 parent) and the Secretary - Lisa (Yr4 parent).
We are always looking for more members on the committee and / or at events.
If you think you can help us or would just like to meet other parents/ carers at the school email us at PTA@Greenwayacademy.co.uk or leave a message at the school office.
You can also volunteer to help at specific events using PTASocial (details below).
Why not join us for our next meeting, have a chat & a cuppa and find out who we are & what we are planning for the rest of this year?
What do we do?
Our main aim is to run fun events for your children, and also for you to enjoy, whilst at the same time raising money for the school.
We have run Summer fetes, Christmas fetes, termly discos, ice-cream Fridays, Pancake sales and adult quiz nights. We would love your ideas and help to do more.
Since we began in September 2015, we have raised over £31,000.
This has been spent on computers, tablets and the tricky trail outdoor equipment.
These are things that without the PTA or parent/carer support the school would struggle to afford.
Our current target is to fundraise towards more outdoor equipment, which your children will be able to enjoy. Already this year, we have also been able to provide the School Council (child led) with £500 to spend on things they think will benefit their peers in the playground.
