Welcome to Brooklands!
Thanks for taking the time to see what the PTA is all about.
As a parent of a student at Brooklands or as one of the teaching staff you are already a member of our wonderful, hard working PTA. We are a friendly group who meet regularly through the year to raise funds to support Brooklands Primary school.
Over recent years the PTA have raised funds for new ICT equipment, refurbishment and development of the children's playgrounds, sports equipment as well as an annual commitment to multiple whole year music lessons, Christmas parties and not forgetting special opportunities like the space rocket visit.
For this year, school and the governors are currently reviewing funding requirements the future. We are excited to help support these plans once they are announced.
PTA events include the annual Winter and Summer Fairs, Brookfest, regular coffee mornings, school discos and movie "nights". Serving refreshments at the Harvest Festival, Christmas shows and Easter parades. From the Autumn Coin Challenge, Bingo Night, Swooshing Party, Wine Tasting, Spring Orienteering Trail, Art Shows to Sponsored Runs, we are always looking at different and interesting ways to raise funds and have fun at the same time. During Covid, things have been different, we’ve hosted a range of online activities including bingo, gin tasting, Freddie Fantastic parties and beer tasting; and created a range of local trails to keep the fun going (and learnt quite a bit about the local area!).
All sounds good - and to make it great we need your help and support. Whether it’s volunteering your time to run a stall at one of the Fairs, applying for Match Funding, donating for an event or coming along, it all counts. Volunteers are always welcomed.
In all the things we do, the motivation is the same, to raise money for the school which all goes back to benefiting the children.
Your PTA committee has the following members:
Zoe Marshall - Chair
