Welcome to PIP

 

 

 

The PTA is a group of parents, carers and staff who voluntarily run social events for parents and children and organise fundraising events. All parents are automatically members and we are really active. This year so far we raised over £17000 and this money is used for the purpose of enriching life for the children at school, although we also raised over £500 for MacMillan and Save the Children.

For example, the PTA funded the purchase of mac books for the children to use, music and RE workshops, donations for Christmas and Easter events as well as sports kit for teams representing the school. A lot of the playground equipment was supported by the PTA.

You probably know about our Beer festival which is a popular local event. We also hold Christmas and Summer fairs, quiz nights, children’s discos, all with help and support from the teachers and staff as well as parents. We are open for any ideas for new events or activities and there is plenty of opportunity to get involved. Meetings are held the first Thursday of every month in the evening so please come along and join in.

We put all our news and events up on Classlist. It’s a free, safe, secure online community for the school where you can post questions and message other parents in your child’s class, house or to the whole school. It’s really useful for tracking down lost jumpers, organising play dates and checking the homework. It’s a good way to contact the PYA if you need to. 

Importantly for Delamere PTA it is used for our second hand uniform sales. This is not the only way to buy – we do old fashioned sales as well – but it’s quick and easy and uniform can be sent home with your child in a day or so.

Classlist also enables you to share your contact details with other parents in the same year group.  You have full control over your privacy settings and can also join and use Classlist without sharing your contact details. It is GDPR compliant and you can start by going to www.classlist.com or searching for ‘Classlist’ in your App Store. 

 

 

 

 

Summer fair and Beer festival

Thank you to everyone who attended the school summer fair on Friday and the fantastic beer festival on Saturday. Another huge thank you to everyone that helped make the evening a success, every one who helped organise the evening, sponsored the evening and dontated amazing raffle prizes. Updates shortly on how much money has been raised. 

Easter egg hunts and famous landmark competition

 

We've had a fantastic day today with our whole school egg hunt and the amazing egg decorations completed by the children. Thank you to all who came to watch the egg rolling this afternoon. 

Fundraising this term!

We would like to say a massive THANK YOU to all who have got involved with fundraising this term.  We really do appreciate the efforts all the parents make in giving time, money, cakes, Easter eggs or ideas.  It is impressive to mention that just in the past week we have raised £75 on uniform sales, £52 on music night refreshments, over £375 from Easter Bingo, £150 from the Thornton’s eggs plus money from the refreshments sold today. Well done all.

Next term we have tuckshops, uniform sales, bags2school collections, discos, beer festival and the summer fair all in the diary already and a few more ideas in the pipeline.  To hit the ground running we are having an evening PIP meeting at The Vale Royal Abbey Arms from 7.30 on Thursday the 20th April (first week back after the holidays) to predominantly discuss the Beer Festival and potential fashion show.  It would be helpful to know who plans to come so that we can reserve an area please. Have a great holiday.

Sandymere tuck shop and Mother's day flowers

Thank you to all who supported Sandymere’s tuck shop after school today and brought in chocolate eggs for the bingo prizes. I hope all the mums like their gift. A massive thank you to Gleaves Garden Centre and Builders Merchants from Frodsham for their kind donation of plants. If ordering flowers or gifts online for Mothering Sunday don’t forget www.easyfundraising.org.uk which is a great way of raising funds. For example, 3% back from Interflora, 4% from Next Flowers and 5% from Flowers Direct.

Parents Evening and Sciene Night

Thank you so much to the parents of Nunsmere and Oakmere for their delicious cakes which helped to raise a fantastic £161 over the Parents’ Evenings and Science Night. It is also lovely to have people come forward with some fresh ideas for future fundraising ideas so thanks also.

This week, we are also looking for just 4 companies to advertise on the back of our music night programme on the 29 March. (This would be around 74mm x 105mm). This is for a donation to the school and the top 4 pledges win the space this time. We can help with artwork if required.
