PTA EGM Meeting

1st February 2021

On Monday 1st February at 7:30pm there will be an Emergency General meeting (EGM) for the PTA. Nikki Phillips, our current chair, will be standing down from the position and we also need to fill the post of treasurer. Without these two posts being filled, the PTA will not be able to continue.

Our PTA have made such a significant contribution to our school and I am so thankful to Nikki and all the other PTA members for all their energy, time and dedication. The PTA provide much needed funds to the school to enable us to provide additional resources for our children and without their fund raising efforts, we just won’t be able to provide the same level of additional resources for our children. But not only do their events and activities provide much needed funds, they also provide activities and events which bring the whole community together and provide activities which promote enjoyment and fun for all our children. We know that covid-19 has meant that many events can’t go ahead, but yet again the PTA have found wonderful ways to still raise money despite all the restrictions that are in place.

I know everyone is so busy and things are particularly difficult at the moment with parents having to juggle work and home-schooling etc. But we won’t be in this situation forever and things will improve. It will be desperately sad if the PTA has to fold at Gayton, so please come along to the meeting on Monday so that hopefully we can fill the two positions and manage to save the PTA
