The PTA is a very hardworking group of parents and friends of Oxspring Primary School. They work together to support the school in its fundraising endeavours and Enterprise Projects. They make substantial contributions to the life of the school and all of our pupils benefit from the work which they do.
The PTA are fabulous at organising community based social events. They raise significant funds from events such as the Christmas Fair, School Discos, Coffee Mornings and the annual Duck Race in Bower Dell (see below). This money goes a long way towards enriching our children’s time at school. In the past year alone the PTA have helped to fund:
- £250 to each class for equipment and resources
- Coach travel for the pantomime and theatre trips
- New chairs for Class 5
- Special blocks and light box for Class 1
- £100 to the school council for a special project
- Grant towards the new school piano
- Coach travel for the Flamingoland trip for year 6 students
- Drama workshops
- Drumming event day
- Base for new green house
- SATS breakfast club food
- Story teller event day
- Year 6 leaving books
- New school signage
- Class money
They would very much love your support, so if you would like to get involved, please contact Mrs Irwin for more details.
There are regular meetings, all of which are advertised in the school’s newsletter and via the website.
The Annual Duck Race
The famous annual Oxspring Duck Race is held at Bower Dell in Oxspring each year and is led by the PTA to raise money for school.
Last year was the 25th anniversary of the Duck Race and we raised an incredible £3,200!
