PTA

A very warm welcome to you from the Parent Teacher Association of Rose Hill Primary School.

What is the Rose Hill PTA about?
The PTA is an essential part of our school life and many things simply would not happen without PTA support.  We are a very friendly group of parents and teachers who organise events to raise additional money for activities, equipment and experiences which can’t be provided by the normal school budget.  Our main events are the Christmas and Summer Fairs, and during the year we organise other fun events such as children’s discos, quiz nights and fashion shows.
We meet every half term to catch up on plans and ideas and to co-ordinate events.  And of course to decide how the money should be spent.  We keep up to date with the whole school community via a termly newsletter, posters around school advertising events and through SchoolPing.
The PTA’s work has provided valuable resources for the benefit of the school, notably the outdoor classroom, toys and games for the playground, theatre group visits, and leaver’s gifts and celebrations for Year 6 pupils.  

How can I join?
Now that your child is joining this school, you automatically become a member! We represent you – so it’s really
important that tell us your ideas on how our money should be spent!  You can get involved in a number of ways:

  • Subscribe to the eMailing List
  • The simplest and easiest way to get PTA updates by email.
  • Attend meetings  or join the Committee team
  • Take part in the 100 Club Draw via ParentPay – details are provided when your child enrols at school

Whether you just listen or pitch in, we’d love to see you.  Being involved:

  • Gives you a really strong connection to school, at a time when your increasingly independent children may be
    telling you less about what goes on!
  • Provides a great way to meet other parents – it’s not just all about fundraising!
  • Help out when you can – it takes a few people to plan an event but a whole lot more to run one!
  • If you fill in the attached form we will contact you now and again to see if you can help.  For example:
    •    At an event – could you serve some refreshments for half an hour?
    •    Behind the scenes – could you stuff raffle tickets into envelopes for us, or maybe design a poster?

There is no pressure for regular commitment.  We don’t have a rota!  But if you’d like to organise an event – tell us!  And of course, please attend PTA Events – You can still make an invaluable contribution simply by attending events with friends and relatives, and spending your pennies!
In these stretched times, the extra money we can raise for the school is more useful than ever.  If you can help in any way please get in touch.  We are always looking for companies that offer a matched giving scheme, or that could provide a raffle prize or even sponsor an event.  Email us at rosehillschoolpta@hotmail.co.uk with your fundraising
and spending suggestions.

However you are able to support your PTA, we look forward to welcoming you and seeing you soon!

With thanks and best wishes from

The Rose Hill PTA Team
