We have recently been lucky enough to also acquire two full sets for both Lower School and Upper School teams, that they can wear when representing Wessex in tournaments and matches with other schools.
These were made possible by a grant from CGI, a global IT consultancy, via an application from one of our parents who works there.
We hugely appreciate any effort that goes into these kind of applications as they can make a big difference to how the rest of our budgets are spent within the school. Please check with your employers as to whether they run similar charitable schemes.
We would also like to thanks Goyals who gave a generous discount enabling us to purchase 2 full sets of kit.
As well as grants for specific purposes, many employers will also partake in Employee Matched Funding schemes.
‘We were approached by a parent who works for a company offering match funding for their employees – up to £6,000 per year… Her company match funds against the overall amount raised at an event. There was one form to fill in…. This year alone, we have raised an additional £2,900 in match funding for just two events!’
With the PTA AGM coming up next Tuesday 16th July, the time has come for a new team to step forward into the core roles of the committee.
The school would like to hugely thank Cath Todd, Gemma Hing, Joanne Edwards, Sara Berloth and Sophie Adams – 4 of which are stepping down from their positions. The effort they’ve put into the last 2 years has been incredible. None of the PTA events would have happened with their organisation, time and enthusiasm, making Wessex the friendly community school that it is.
Parents or Grandparents, individually or paired up, please don’t be shy – the school needs you!!!
If you’re interested but unsure, or would just like to know more, please feel free to contact any of the above names who would be more than happy to have an informal chat. You can also read more about the different roles in the link below.
Cath and Gemma will also still be around to support the new Chair, Vice Chair, Secretary and Officers, all of which can be shared positions if preferred.
Joanne is happy to continue the amazing work she’s done as Treasurer this year, but would also welcome extra support to share the role if anyone else would like to join her.
Fi Hart will continue support on the side with online communications and posters etc. where needed.
The Class Reps will also continue to be a vital link between the PTA and all other parents but we desperately need volunteers to come forward to take over the Core Roles for the crucial key organisation and delegation to make it all happen.
Drinks and nibbles will be provided.
