Hello, my name is Vicky Bogacz and I am the Chairperson of the Parent Council. Teresa Strachan, is the Secretary and Jenny Giblin, the Treasurer.
Although we are the face of the Parent Council the work required is very time consuming and too much for us to do alone in our own limited spare time. If every parent could help just a little, imagine what we could achieve together for our school.
Our main task is to fundraise to provide our children the best opportunities during their primary school experience. The Council and School budgets do not stretch far and we have previously funded buses for school trips, books, IPads and Discos to name a few things.
We also liaise between parents and the school, to keep information flowing.
We would like for you to feel part of this fantastic school community so wish to make you aware of how you can be kept informed.
We have an email mailing list that you can join: firstname.lastname@example.org
A Facebook Group – search St Madoes Primary Parent Council
Or, meet us for a chat in the playground!
How much you wish to be involved is up to you. Here are some of the easy ways you can be:
Parent Council Meetings - We have an hour-long meeting once a term open to all Parents. We discuss our fundraising plans and where our money is being spent. Headteacher, Mrs Campbell also gives us an update about events within the school. We look forward to welcoming you to these meetings.
Easyfundraising – we are signed up to this.
It is a cost free way for us to earn money. Join and name St Madoes Primary School Council as your Cause. Every time you shop online through Easyfundraising, retailers donate an agreed percentage into our account.
Youschoollottery.co.uk – we have set up an online lottery through this company to great success. Sign up and search St Madoes Primary School.
Every Saturday someone in the school wins a cash prize and the school earns 40p for every £1 ticket sold.
Thank you for taking the time to read this. We look forward to meeting you soon.
