                             International Day 2018 - We need you!



We are currently in the final planning stages for our 2018 International Day, which will be held on Saturday 30th June. The last time this fantastic event was held was in 2013 and we are really looking forward to putting it on again. We hope the day will be a real celebration of our school's diversity as well as a fun day out. 

To make this event run as smoothly as possible and provide as exciting an event as possible we are looking for volunteers to help  out on the day, but also with setting up on Friday evening. This could be as little or as much time as you can offer  any offers of help will be most welcome! Please speak with any member of the PTA or your children's Class Rep if you are able to get involved or email pta@sthelensprimary.net

Thank you!

The School Swimming Pool

Our fundraising priority for 2017/18 is the school swimming pool. The school needs updating in many areas as it is an old building which requires a lot of upkeep, but the swimming pool in particular is in need of repair. The swimming pool is a selling point for the school and very important for pupils as a recreational resource due to the relatively small size of the playground in proportion to the number of pupils. 

Your support at our PTA events is therefore much appreciated as the majority of the money we raise this year will go towards the goal of keeping the pool operational.

Our school mega school triathlon relay raised an amazing £3223.46!!!
We are astonished! Thank you so much to all the children, parents, families and friends who contributed.

The Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is a joint committee of parents and teachers of St Helen's Primary School. Our main aim is to plan and organise events that help raise funds for the school to support learning and the school environment. We also aim to encourage close links between home and school by providing opportunities for parents, staff and children to get together. Parents and staff work together to provide fund raising activities such as quiz nights, International Days and Winter fayres, as well as supporting school based events such as providing refreshments for the Key Stage performances and share days. An annual general meeting (AGM) is held at the beginning of the school year where a committee is elected and objectives for the year ahead are set out. We then aim to meet frequently, dates and times of which will be made available.

If you would like to become involved with St Helen's Primary School PTA or support our fundraising efforts please contact:
 Juliette Lobley on pta@sthelensprimary.net.

Thank you for your help and support.
