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 year raising £3150, which is also donated to the Air Ambulance) and we hope to raise even more funds with the Lacon Lottery: a cash draw which runs from March to December every 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.
