P.T.A.

We have a very active PTA at East Borough, and we put on a variety of events throughout the year for our children and parents / carers to raise funds, which are used to enhance the environment and learning experiences for the children. We are pleased to be able to work in partnership with the school to achieve our aims.

Through this page on our website, you will be able to access information about our committee meetings, both in the form of agendas for forthcoming meetings and minutes of previous meetings, our calendar of events, and newsletters to keep you updated on what we have achieved and what is going on.

We always appreciate new ideas and feedback, so feel free to contact us, or to come along to a meeting or event. If you would like to get involved but are worried about how much you can do, please don’t be! Nothing is too onerous, and there are always people on hand to answer any queries you may have..

Who we are:

  • Chairperson: Caron Colling
  • Vice Chair: Lisa Found
  • Secretary: Elizabeth Amartey
  • Treasurer: Paula Clark

All new volunteers are very welcome, come along and be part of our team. Please visit our Facebook page to see details of events and to volunteer.

Please click here to see our planned events. The minutes of our meetings are downloadable at the bottom of this page. We also have a gallery of past events. 

Even if you can't spare any time, you can still help us. Remember us whenever you are shopping online - make sure that you click in to www.TheGivingMachine.co.uk first. You'll generate a FREE cash donation for us with every purchase. There are over 2,000 of the most popular shops on TheGivingMachine. It couldn't be easier for you to make a difference without it costing you a penny.

Another easy way to raise money for our PTA is ordering labels through Stikins.     Click here to order Stikins name labels and raise money for our PTA - our fundraising number is 6483 and we will get 30% commission.

From now on, whilst shopping on Amazon you can support your school by raising funds.  It doesn’t cost you a penny extra – you shop and Amazon will give 0.5% of the net purchase price (excluding VAT and other shipping fees) to East Borough whilst still enjoying the same wide selection of products, low prices and convenient shopping features as you find on amazon.co.uk.

How do I set up AmazonSmile?

It's so easy to link your amazon account to a 'Smile' account, just follow the below link and type in East Borough primary to find our school.

https://smile.amazon.co.uk/ch/800956-0

This is a great opportunity for East Borough PTA to increase funds, especially at this current time.

We look forward to your continued support.

Thank you

Thank you to the PTA families who brightened our school playgrounds this holiday!

A huge thank you to the members of our PTA who gave up some of their time in the Easter Holiday to help improve the environment for the children. They spent the day at East Borough painting the benches, fences and woodwork to brighten up the playgrounds.
