News from Dame B's PTA

Published on 06/02/18

An update for the Dame Bradbury's community written by the PTA.

Firstly, we would like to thank everyone for their support for the wonderful 2017 Christmas Grotto. The whole event was a huge success with lots of happy children and a busy day for Father Christmas!

The PTA is an important part of life at Dame Bradbury’s. A lot of time and work is put into the fundraising and events the PTA organise and host. 

This term we have been working with the School Council on one of their projects. The School Council approached us with a pitch for some funds for some storage facilities to go into the den-building area. They had some very well thought out ideas and we are, of course, very happy to help. 

At the same time we will also be purchasing some additional storage for the top field. This will allow for more toys and activities to be kept outside and available for playtimes for all year groups. 

Our other focus for fundraising is the Story-garden: more details on this will follow.
