The PTA was formed to raise funds to pay for resources, treats and educational trips for the children.  We have organised fund raisers from a fashion show to a Christmas Fayre, a school recipe book, car treasure hunt and many raffles – all of which have been highly successful and enjoyable!  We have just launched our new 100 club - please email Fiona for a membership form and rules.

We have paid for the transport to many school trips including The Theatre Royal, Newcastle, Walby Farm Park and The Queens Theatre Hexham.  We recently purchased a modular stage for school productions, jumbo sized building blocks, lego construction sets, stock for the Lees Hill School shop and many books for the library.  PTA funds also pay for the refreshments served at school events.  The children took part in The Bright Stars project and held a fantastic pizza and pasta night and the PTA ran the bar.  We also invite Santa along to the Christmas party, help his elves with the shopping and expenses incurred!

The PTA  are registered with 'The Giving Machine'.  If you join and nominate Walton & Lees Hill School PTA as your choice of good cause then every time you log on and go internet shopping any purchases you make will result in a donation being made to the PTA.  All sorts of popular shops are on the Giving Machine register eg. Boots, Next, Debenhams, Argos, eBay, Amazon etc.  Its a really simple, easy way to raise money for school.

All parents are members of the PTA and are warmly invited to come along to meetings and fundraisers.  We welcome any ideas and offers of help so please do not hesitate to speak to Mrs Stobbart, Fiona, Gillian or Rebecca.
