All children and staff in Bankier Primary benefit from the money raised by the PTA.. They need new faces and ideas - please spare a little of your time each month to come along and join in the meetings. Everyone is welcome - you will find the dates of the meetings in the school newsletter. Even if you don't want to join the PTA come along and give us your ideas and views.
Without the fundraising efforts of the PTA Bankier Primary would not have:
- Interactive whiteboards in every classroom
- Literacy /Story / Discovery Worlds Reading
- Nelson spelling Scheme
- Stanley Thornes Science
- School Trips
- Christmas Pantomime treats
- Santa / Leaving Gifts
- Sound and Light System in the main hall
and much much more!
In recent years the PTA have raised funds to buy many resources for the school, some of which are: 'Literacy Worlds' reading scheme for the senior school; resources needed for the new science scheme; Nelson Spelling Scheme and a huge project to install interactive whiteboards in every classroom! We have contributed to the light and sound system in the main hall.
The PTA also pays for the P7s to go on a night/day out before they leave for High School and provide a leaving gift. They also contribute towards the cost of buses for school trips.
In order to do all this we have fund raising events that go on throughout the year. We have two main events that bring in a lot of money: The Christmas Fayre, The Summer Fete. These two events are our biggest fundraisers and on top of that we also have other events such as Pamper Nights, 80's Discos, Bag Packing and School Discos. We have a Helping Hands Draw where you can win big bucks!!!!
