PTA

The Parent Teacher Association

A warm welcome from the PTA! Here’s what we do.

Our main role is raising money to support the school and buy things for the pupils that the school wouldn’t be able to buy otherwise.  We have recently donated £60,000 to the Sports Hall fundraising effort, and paid for a 3D printer, the canopy for the outside courtyard and lighting and sound systems for the hall.

We raise this money mostly by organising events for parents (Quiz Nights, 80s Night, Race Night) and for the pupils (Christmas Bring and Buy, Year 7 & 8 discos, Easter Egg Bingo), which are both fundraising and fun social events. We also run our monthly prize draw, the 100+ Club, as well as a Christmas Raffle.

BUY TICKETS Please come along to our events and/or help out. We always welcome new faces.

Any questions, please email pta@twggs.kent.sch.uk

Thank you for your support

Uniform

The PTA runs a shop for parents to buy second-hand uniform for their children. It is sourced entirely from donations and we aim to hold stocks of skirts, blouses, jumpers, dresses and PE kit.

If you would like to purchase uniform, email uniform@twggs.kent.sch.uk .

Obviously, we always need more stock, so if you have any uniform which is in a good, clean and saleable condition that you would like to donate, please leave it at reception.

Easyfundraising.org.uk

This is one of the easiest ways that you can support the PTA, at really minimal effort and absolutely no cost to you.

Just go to easyfundraising LINK TO http://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/causes/twggspta/ and sign up, nominating TWGGS PTA as your cause. Then every one of your purchases at their partner websites will raise money for TWGGS PTA. And their partner websites are normal, everyday places to shop like Next, John Lewis, Sainsbury’s, M&S. You can choose whether you go to your shopping websites through the easyfundraising website or download an app for PC or phone. Then every three months they add up all the money TWGGS PTA supporters have raised and pay it into our account.

 

Simple as that. And it costs you nothing.
