PTA poem

This charming poem, much-loved by our PTA+ Facebook community, is sure to convince potential volunteers to step forward and offer their help.

Simply hand it out to parents of new starters. Or if your PTA funds water bottles for Reception children, then this makes a great 'message' to place inside!

Who wants to join our school PTA?

Who wants to join our school PTA?
What is it for? You say, backing away.
The short answer is fundraising, pennies and pounds -
The school's tight stretched budget can't always go round.
We buy extra resources, for learning and play,
To enrich and enhance our children's school day.

Who wants to join our school PTA?
What do you do? You gingerly say,
Well, we run termly discos, Christmas fair, summer Fete.
Cake sales, Easter events, we've a lot on our plate!
We serve teas and coffees at most school events,
On baking cakes and biscuits much time is spent.
Christmas Party Day, is for us the best bit,
Serving dinner for children, inviting Santa to visit.

Who wants to join our school PTA?
Is it all mothers' meetings? You nervously say.
It's true that we chatter at the school gate,
Lots of business gets sorted around half past eight
But we really are a very mixed bunch,
Business people, professionals, and ladies that lunch
You don't have to be female to be part of our club…

So, who wants to join our School PTA?
I've heard it's quite cliquey, as a last ditch you say.
No, not in the slightest, we welcome everyone,
There's a lovely team spirit, its hard work but fun.
Between staff and parents, we strengthen the link.
Are you interested? Will you join us? What do you think?

If you're convinced or just curious about what we do each year
Come along to the meetings, there's more to see and hear
