The Windermere PTA is about more than just meetings and cake sales. We host fun activities and events throughout the year that foster a strong sense of community within and around the school, while raising funds to support our children. We organise seasonal fairs and raffles, sell pre-loved uniform, recycle textiles and more. We always do something special for Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, and of course we do like the occasional cake sale!
We spend the funds we raise on activities and items that impact the whole school, which means that every child in every class benefits. Every year we subsidise coaches for school trips, so that every child is able to participate. We contribute to the school Christmas lunch and we subsidise hoodies for our Leavers. In addition, we try to fund an extra activity for each class every year. In the 2020/21 school year, we also purchased new iPads for the school and a new projector for the school hall.
Every parent or carer of children attending Windermere is automatically a member of the PTA, therefore we warmly welcome you to be actively involved in whatever way you can. We would love to hear your ideas, and we always enjoy seeing new faces at our meetings and events.
The PTA Committee are a small team, but we are very grateful for the strong support of the school, and our enthusiastic and committed parents and volunteers.
The Committee members are:
- Chair – Kim, Year 3
- Treasurer – Toby, Years 2 and 3
- Secretary – Vanessa, Year 3
