The PTA are a small and friendly group of parents and teaching staff that organise a number of social and fundraising events throughout the year in order to raise money for our school. The money raised is then used for all those extras that help to enhance the children’s lives at school.
Every parent/carer that has a child at St Augustine’s is a member of the P.T.A.
Our PTA do a fabulous job raising money for the school throughout the year. So far they have bought bookcases for the library, a laptop cabby, chairs and tables for Early Years, books, trips to the theatre, and trips to the Adventure Farm. These are only a few of the wonderful things they have provided us with.
The PTA only have four or five active members who seem to be organising every event and they are always on the lookout for new members. If you feel you would like to join the PTA please get in touch with either Dee Lichfield or Miss Robey in the office.
So far during this half term the PTA have organised a photography competition, our Christmas cards and a pumpkin carving competition.
We have many more to look forward to this year including:
- Christmas Fair

What can I do to help the PTA?
The PTA always need help with organising events. They always appreciate cake baking for cake sales and crafts making for the fairs.
Any donations of unwanted Christmas presents or gifts for the tombola are always very gratefully received.
At the School Play, Christmas Fair & Summer Fair they always need volunteers to help on the refreshment stall, tombola and craft stands.
Join the PTA at the annual AGM, any new ideas and thoughts are always welcomed. This year the AGM and meetings have been held in the school hall to allow for social distancing.
