The PTA is made-up by a group of volunteers (parents and carers) who work hard each year to fundraise for extra items and events to enrich the learning experience of the pupils at Lacon Childe School.
This year we are supporting the 'School Hall Project', whereby we in conjunction with the school and local community, will hope to raise £90,000 in order to re-furbish the school hall.
If you would like to donate money to our crowdfunding page, then please click on the following link:
The Borders Classic Bike Show is run each September (last time raising £3150, which is also donated to the Air Ambulance) and we are also beginning a brand new lottery this year to hopefully hraise more funds. We also have an easyfundraising page which is a simple way to raise funds when doing your on-line shopping, and have regular Bags 2 School collections and other fundrasing events throughout the year.
We are appealing for any new parents to come and join our friendly group. If you would like to get involved, we would love to hear from you. Please get in touch with Sharon, Hannah, Sarah or Tracey. New ideas are welcome and we are always grateful for more parents to help, so please come along.
Following the difficulties this year we have had carrying our face to face fundraising, we have decided to trial a brand new on-line lottery this year, as our usual leafletting has not been possible.
To support this, simply click on the link below to sign up. It costs just £1 per week and every week there is a winner, plus a chance to win the £25,000 jackpot prize. The more people that enter, the bigger the weekly prize!
Our fist draw takes place on Saturday 17th April 2021 so make sure you have signed up before then to be in for a chance to win!! Good Luck and thank you for your continuing support.
