Lincroft PTA Fun Day Summer Term 2017

The PTA held their first Family Fun Day on Saturday, 17th June. It included a host of stalls run by the PTA, staff and students of Lincroft including a BBQ, Bouncy Castle, Stalls, Games, Tombolas and a raffle. The event took in an amazing £1600.00 on the day. We had beautiful sunshine and warm weather. Members of our local community also came along to enjoy the afternoon. The monies raised will be put towards improving our outdoor dining facilities.

Lincroft School’s Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is a brilliant and highly successful group who not only support the school through fund raising but also have a huge amount of fun at the same time.

The PTA meetings have a strong staff attendance and we also seek the support from PTA Class reps that meet during a school lunchtime when necessary.

There are numerous events that we organise throughout the year and parents can help out or get involved in many different ways. This could range from spending a little time setting up a stall at an event to helping plan one. All help is welcome and we are always open to new fundraising ideas.

In 2016 we held another very entertaining 'Fun Run' with afternoon entertainment, most students and teachers completed several laps of the School field in a very enjoyable sunny summer afternoon. This event raised over £4,000.00

A very quizzical ‘Quiz Night’, This event has been held for the last three years in the Autumn term. We have had more than a dozen teams enter each year made up of parents and staff. It's a very fun evening with quiz rounds and a lovely homemade curry supper provided by the School Kitchen team.

Traditionally, the Lincroft PTA host a Halloween Disco after school for Key Stage2 (Years 5 and 6), with a slightly later disco for Key Stage 3 (Years 7 and 8).

And, to finish the year off we had a ridiculously rewarding ‘Christmas Raffle’. We are well into our 6th year of organisation for this event. Previously we have had approximately 30 prizes donated annually by our local business community / supported by the PTA. Historically our top prizes have included iPhones, Mini iPads, Center Parcs gift vouchers, and lots, lots more.

As a registered charity, the money raised by the PTA helps to support the many different fantastic experiences that pupils have at Lincroft. Please see below for some examples of these items:
