William Torbitt has a small but committed and hardworking parent and teacher fundraising group. Our group work enthusiastically throughout the year to organise a range of events and to help build and promote community spirit. Many of the activities help raise additional and much valued funds for the school. The PTA also plays a significant role in providing social events for our children and families. We meet regularly to discuss events and plan other fundraising activities and provide social evenings for parents and carers to meet up.
The PTA members are made up from parents, carers and school staff, and new members are always warmly welcomed. Some PTA members are able to commit a significant amount of time to arranging planned events for which we are extremely grateful. Other members however are happy to help out ‘on the day’, or help with ideas and thoughts for events or maybe just help in the preparation process. Any assistance or contribution is always gratefully appreciated.
The PTA organise a wide range of social activities that bring all members of our community together. Regular events in the PTFG calendar include; the Christmas Fair, pick-a-present, and a Summer Fair to name but a few.
Each year the PTA are able to make purchases for the benefit of the children throughout the school, help with school trips and provide other items to enhance opportunities at William Torbitt. All these things are added luxuries that the school cannot afford. These purchases are published in the newsletter for all members of the William Torbitt community to see.
