The pre-school has a flourishing Parent and Teacher Association/Committee that works in close partnership with the pre-school. It provides support through its fund-raising activities as well as providing an important link between home and pre-school.
The committee has three principal roles:
1. Raising funds for new equipment and experiences
2. Hosting events for the children such as the Christmas Fayre and Summer Fete
3. Offering all parents the chance to be part of an inclusive pre-school community
Anyone can be a member of the committee, whether you are a parent or grandparent. It is a chance to get involved with your pre-school community and enjoy some of the events and activities on offer.
“The generosity of the time donated by our committee members is astonishing and invaluable to the running of the pre-school”
Committee members arrange a host of activities and functions across the pre-school and play a vital role in raising funds for the pre-school, to provide those ‘icing on the cake’ extras, which often make learning more exciting and rewarding. The work of the committee in recent years has enabled the pre-school to extend the garden play area and provide outside play equipment, purchase a new large indoor mat and invest in a set of new Ipads, as well as purchasing many other items such as soft play resources.
The committee meets monthly and has an Annual General Meeting in the Autumn Term. It welcomes new members who bring fresh ideas and approaches. Any help contributed to support its events ultimately, and most importantly, benefits each and every child at St. Luke’s Pre-School. For further details please speak to Vicky in the office.
