A huge thank you to everyone who helped make the Christmas Market a great success - all those who helped with organisation and worked on the day, who donated prizes & sponsored the event
We hope everyone who came had a great time!
We're so pleased to see lots of new faces joining the PTA for the coming year! As you can see in the list below, we're stronger than ever (and Year 2 parents - if you fancy it, please do come along and join us ).
Any money we raise this year will go towards refurbishing the playgrounds.
With no Christmas or Summer Fairs possible, we missed out on a lot of fun and lost a big funding stream worth £thousands to the school. We did manage to organise a few events in 2020/21 though and now want to say a huge THANK YOU to all the Woodside parents for your support. Altogether, we raised just shy of £4,000!
A big hello from the Woodside PTA team
Our aim is to raise extra money for the school, to help fund things which would not otherwise be available for the children. In the past, this included things such as the climbing frames, new library books and iPads. In recent years, money raised has helped to transform the Year 2 and Reception classrooms.
None of it 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.
