As you will have hopefully seen in last week's school newsletter, the next PTA meeting is next week - now on Thursday 28th at 9.00am at Ortus (as opposed to Wednesday 27th as originally publicised). We do hope that many of you will be able to join us.
This meeting will incorporate the Spending Meeting - please take a moment to click on the link below to read the Spending Proposals in full. They were sent to everyone during the last spending round (June 2015). A copy of these proposals will also be put up on the school noticeboard this week.
The spending proposals were split into two parts:
1. 50% of school trip spending (£3,250), curriculum performances (£1,500), golden time and wet play resources (£1,600) and literary resources (£1,140). Total: £7,490. This spending was approved in our June meeting.
2. Class fund (£800), class Christmas present (£480), defibrillator (£1100) and Radio Lyndhurst (£790) - This is the part that we need to approve in the next spending meeting on 28th Jan.
Since these spending proposals were drawn up last year, the PTA have more funds raised from the summer and winter fairs, etc. so Mrs Nowakowska is now asking the phase leaders (early years, KS1 and KS2) to put forward any new proposals they have. Once these are in we will have another PTA spending meeting later in the year to discuss. Proposals are always welcome from parents and can either be sent to us before the 28th or at any other time for discussion at future spending meetings later in the year.
At the last PTA meeting, we talked about whether/how to subsidise the year 6 trip further (it currently receives £1000 of PTA funds) and that issue is still up for debate and will be on the agenda again for next Thursday's meeting.
If there are other agenda items, please send them to me by Wednesday next week.
We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible at the next PTA/Spending meeting on Thursday 28th January at 9.00am in the cafe at Ortus.
Lyndhurst PTA Secretary
