Welcome to OLOP PTA!
The PTA Committee is a small, dedicated team who meet once a month virtually or in person. These meetings are essential to get together to discuss current and forthcoming events, funding requests, new ideas for the school and how the money raised is to be spent.
We welcome new parents and existing parents to join us at our monthly meetings as well as at our AGM (held in the Autumn Term). Please have a look at the school calendar for the date of our next meeting. Come along and find out what we do.
What do we do?
Throughout the school year, the PTA organises fundraising events and initiatives including:
- Christmas and Summer Fairs
- Family Games Night
- Usborne and Scholastic Book Fairs
- Colouring competitions
- Refreshments at Harvest, Nativities and Carol Concerts
- 50/50 Club (a monthly prize draw where 50% of cash generated makes up the monthly prizes and 50% goes to the PTA fund.)
You can also help raise funds for school in other ways too:
