Friends of Birch Hill

All parents are automatically members of the PTA and are warmly invited to attend the meetings, which are held every month in the staff room. Just turn up!

But where does the money go?

The Christmas money, plus all that raised from cake sales, film nights, quiz nights and, of course, the Summer fete, goes towards extras for the children and school that wouldn't normally be within the realms of the school budget.

Over the last few years the PTA money has been spent on:

o Light and sound equipment in the main hall
o A digital camera for every class
o New reading scheme for the entire school
o Overhead projectors for the classrooms.
o Construction of ‘Shady Birch’ on the playground
o Fruit for the children at SAT time
o New literacy/numeracy text books
o New headphones in the Library
o Wet play games and football cones
o Embroidering the Sainsbury’s Voucher sport tops with the school logo and name
o Line dancing competitions

The nursery have not been ignored:

o New Christmas costumes for the nativity play
o CD Player
o Outside chalk board
