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.
The Borders Classic Bike Show is run each September (this 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, Tracey or Amie. New ideas are welcome and we are always grateful for more parents to help, so please come along.
Join in for only £10, support the school and be in with a chance of winning cash too! We are currently launching the lottery for 2020 - the children have a chance to win £50 by selling tickets and entering into a draw. The children will be issued with forms to bring home and the draw will take place at the end of January. After this date, the tickets will be available for the public to buy.
Tickets are £10 and cover the period March to December. The prize money is half of the total funds and will be drawn monthly. Please click the links below for more information and to sign up.
The Lucky winners are:
October draw: Teresa W
November draw: Michael Butler
December Draw: Kerry Kirkby
Congratulations and thank you
