PTA

St Andrew’s Primary PTA

 

St Andrew’s Primary Priest and Parent Teacher Association plans and runs events which provides opportunities for our community to socialise and also raise funds which enhance our children’s experience at the school.

Events this year have included a Quiz Night, Halloween Disco, Christmas Discos, Christmas Film Morning, Family Fun Disco, summer raffle and various Secret Present Rooms. We also run a Ladies Charity Night where half the money raised goes to a nominated charity and the other to school funds.

This year, the money raised has enabled us to buy:

* Bringing the pantomime to the school at Christmas

* Christmas presents for P1s – P3s

* Ice creams on Sports Day

* Class prize shields and the Boclair Cup

* The Primary 7 leavers party

* 4 new benches and 3 new planters for the infant playground

* 1 picnic table for the back playground

* A mobile cooker with utensils

* French books for the library

* 4 sets of Lego “WeDo”, storage unit for outside toys

* Football strips and jacket for the coach

* Hoodies and more skorts for the netball team and hoodies for the coaches

* “Playground friend” bibs
