Bill Quay Parent and Teacher Association (BQPTA) is just that - a group of school staff, parents and carers working together to benefit the children at Bill Quay Primary School.
The majority of the PTA’s work focuses on fundraising and providing opportunities for children, their families and the wider community to enjoy social events such as assemblies, Mothers Day lunch, sports day, fayres and hopefully many more new events in the future.
BQPTA has a core committee - a group of dedicated organisers who set all the wheels in motion for the main fundraising events and activities. The committee meets in school on a regular basis and anyone is welcome to join us.
If you cannot commit to meetings but can help in any way, it will be very much appreciated. There are lots of ways to help such as donating cakes, selling refreshments at events, sourcing raffle prizes and attending events when you can. BQPTA are always looking for new ideas too so if you are a budding fundraiser, bursting with fresh ideas, please let us know!
BQPTA is very new but we have already raised significant funds which have helped pay for Android tablets for children to use in school. Funds raised form forthcoming events will be used towards all children attending a pantomime before Christmas.
The current members of the core BQPTA committee are:
Corinne Rutherford – Administration Officer
Lesley Burrell – Teacher Assistant
Tony Hilton – Head Teacher
Kim Pagan – Year 3 Parent
Gayle Shuker – Year 3 and Year 6 Parent
Claire Smith – Year 3 Parent
Katie George – Year 4 Parent
