PTA poem

Parents of new starters, try a volunteering role. Our PTA makes a difference, that's our goal

Hand it out to the parents of new starters. If your PTA funds water bottles for Reception children, 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 schools tight stretched budget cant always go round.

We buy extra resources, for learning and play,

To enrich and enhance our childrens school day.

Who wants to join our school PTA?

What do you do? You gingerly say.

Well, we run termly discos, Christmas fair, summer fête,

Cake sales, Easter events, weve 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.

Its 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 dont have to be female to be part of our club...

So, who wants to join our school PTA?

Ive heard its quite cliquey, as a last ditch you say.

No, not in the slightest, we welcome everyone,

Theres a lovely team spirit, it's hard work but fun.

Between staff and parents, we strengthen the link.

Are you interested? Will you join us? What do you think?

If youre convinced or just curious about what we do each year,

Come along to the meetings, theres more to see and hear.
