** Next event - Slumber Party 24th January - details below **
A big hello from the Woodside PTA . Please scroll down to see what's happening this term.
Money raised over the years has helped to fund a minibus, adventure climbing frames, library books, iPads and interactive whiteboards. In 2018/19, we were delighted to hand the school a cheque for £20,000, which was used to refurbish the Year 2 classroom.
None of this would be possible without the continued support of the parents and staff of Woodside. You can help by attending events, joining our 'Helper List', donating raffle prizes... or try asking your employer's HR department about match funding schemes. Our charity number is 290550.

We're going green!
We're trying to reduce single use plastic at our PTA events. For our slumber party, please can children bring an empty school water bottle, which we can fill with squash.
On Shrove Tuesday, the children will be seeing how many pancake flips they can do. Sponsor forms will be sent home before half term and you can sponsor per flip (health warning: some counting in the past has been 'generous' ) or a set amount for the event. Please ask grandparents, family, neighbours - it's good fun for the children and a great way to raise money for the school.
Details will be added in due course
