PTFA News - 11/10/2019

< Back to the news

 An amazing total of £13,336.16 was raised during the course of last year.


This represents a fantastic amount of money. Funds from last year were used to purchase My Maths and Times Table Rockstars which are online maths programmes supporting learning at home. All Year 5 pupils participated in First Aid training which was funded by the PTFA. Our 3 Enrichment days were also funded by the PTFA, as it enabled year groups to book authors during World Book day or Japanese drumming workshops during International day. Funding was also used to purchase additional equipment for our new Forest School area along with bookmark prizes and gold badges for behaviour, as well as 2 defibrillators that are located in school. The remaining funds are due to be spent on additional home reading books which will really enhance the quality of reading material that all children will have access to.

On behalf of the governors and staff at Five Ways, I would like to thank everyone involved with the PTFA in terms of organising and helping at events as well as everyone who has supported the events. Without your kindness, we would not have been able to purchase the wonderful resources detailed above.
