Everyone welcome.

Become a "Friend of the PTA"

If you can't attend meetings or aren't able to commit your time regularly but would still like to help the PTA behind the scenes, we'd love to take your contact details. Please leave your email if you'd be happy to be contacted during the run up to events. At these times we are always in need of a little extra help - examples might include sourcing donations, wrapping gifts, volunteering an hour at a disco/fair or washing uniform donations. We won't bombard you and we understand the pressures of life mean you won't always be available, so please don't worry, you're not signing your life away! Many thanks for your support ~ PTA ~

Father's Day Secret Shop

 

The PTA will soon be running a secret shop to give the children the chance to choose gifts, in school, for their adult male loved ones.

Gifts are £4 each and will be chosen by the children, wrapped and sent home on 10 June.

If you would like your child to be involved, please fill out this form and make the correct payment to the PTA Bank Account (details on form).

https://forms.office.com/r/VARtjmY61R

Please note, the deadline to receive all forms and payments is *Friday 27 May* and we cannot accept late entries.

 

Project UniCycle

Earlier this year, we received fantastic news that we have been successful in our bid to the Bury Council Climate Action Community Fund, being awarded just under £5,000 to create a permanent second-hand school uniform shop.

 

We have also raised an amazing £1024.63 from the Aviva Community Fund to pay for the fixtures and fittings.

 

Thanks to the hard work from a small army of volunteer builders, decorators and school parents and grandparents we can invite you to the GRAND OPENING on Tuesday 24th May, 3pm.

 

See Dojo and follow Project UniCycle on Facebook (link below) for all the details…

Summer Fair 2022

 

SAVE THE DATE!

 

We always welcome new faces... here's How To Get Involved!

 

Meetings:

All parents are very welcome to attend the PTA meetings. You can come to one, all, any you like and you can be as involved as you can / wish to be. There is no pressure. Meetings generally last an hour and are held over zoom. You can find the date of the next meeting at the top of this page.

 

Volunteering:

If you can't make the meetings but would like to be involved, we are always looking for help at our events - discos, secret shops, fairs etc. We need lots of support to run these events and so an hour of volunteering does make all the difference. Please send us a message in the box near the top of the page to become a 'Friend of the PTA'.

 

Attending events:

Of course our fundraising events are worthless unless you support them! The proceeds go straight back to school and the children really love it too.

 

Second Hand Uniform Shop:

As we expand our second hand uniform with Project UniCycle, we will be looking for volunteers to help sort, wash and sell in our shop. Please get in touch with Katie if you can help. Of course, please also donate and buy from the store too. Buying from us reduces textile waste, helps to tackle climate change, can save you hundreds of pounds and supports the PTA charity - it's a win win! 

 

The Giving Machine:

 

You can support the PTA's fundraising target by generating free donations for us every time you shop online via TheGivingMachine. Sign up, install the app on your mobile device or set the 'shop and give' reminder on your desktop and get started now. It doesn't cost you anything, but raises vital funds for our school. Please do tell your friends and family how they can help us at no extra cost too

Amazon Smile:

Shopping at Amazon, why not switch to smile.amazon.co.uk and nominate Greenmount PTA as your chosen charity.

This is a really easy way to generate some much needed funds. Log onto smile.amazon.co.uk or find it in the Amazon App and nominate Greenmount PTA as your chosen charity, every time you shop on Amazon we will receive 0.5% of any eligible spend at no extra cost to you. 

 

 

Contact Us:

If you would like further information about any PTA events, if you have some ideas or feedback that may be of help, if you'd like to volunteer or have any other enquiry, please speak to our chair - Kathy (mum of Thomas in Year 5), a PTA Committee member or email us - greenmountpta@live.com

We are also very active on the 'Parents of Greenmount Primary School, Bury' Facebook page.
