The Parent Teacher Assosciation (PTA)
We are very fortunate at Chelmondiston to have an active PTA. The function is two fold. It raises money for the school providing extras and items that the school budget does not stretch to while providing an opportunity for children, governors, parents and teachers to get to know each other outside the confines of the school day. During the course of the 2017 and 2018 academic year the PTA contributed money to replace all of the Smart boards that were being used in the classrooms. These were rather old and becoming difficult to use and so the new class sized tablet, Ben Q boards are an excellent addition. They have helped make lessons more fun and interactive.The PTA have also contributed small sums of money to allow the children to have more exciting learning experiences. The children in the Melissa class enjoyed making model cars which the PTA helped to fund. Their latest project has been to raise money for a new outdoor classroom with the help of a very handsome donation from a local resident. This was erected in the last week of the Summer Term 2019 (see photograph below).
For details of the current PTA committee and the events that are scheduled for the present term please look on the board outside of the Key Stage Two main entrance.
