Borderbrook School PTA is an active part of the school, raising funds to support the children with their education. The PTA have most recently helped to purchase a CleverTouch screen for the Foundation Classroom, donating £1500 towards the cost. The children are finding this equipment so beneficial in their classes, using it for their phonics lessons, writing and spelling,and for registration. It is now an integral and essential part of their classroom lessons.
The PTA meets regularly to plan and discuss events. Funds raised subsidise transport costs and provide 'extras' to enrich the curriculum. It is not essential to come along to the meetings, our parents and community can help in many other ways too.
All parents are automatically members and we welcome any members of the community who are keen to support their local school.
2018/9 was a very busy year for the PTA at Borderbrook School, we organised many fundraising events, some old and some new, and we also provided the children with their favourite parties for annual calendar events like Halloween and Christmas.
PTA Meeting: Thursday 3rd October 2019, 2.30pm in the School office. We would love to welcome you along, we need new ideas and fresh faces to help provide exciting events for the school, and raise much needed funds.
Last PTA was held on 20th June 2019. Minutes available from school.

Tallarn Greens Big Day Out 29th June 2019. This is a community event that the school had a huge marquee bursting with games to play, things to buy, and prizes to be won. This is a great opportunity to raise our awareness within the community, and raised the school a fantastic £655.75.
Clothing Recycling We collected our old clothes, shoes and bags and exchanged them for cash for the school. It's a great way to have a clear out, and helps many other people along the way.
