PSA January 2015
As Etz Chaim Jewish Primary School is in its growth stage, the involvement and commitment of its relatively small parent body and the local community is both needed and most greatly appreciated.
The PSA of Etz Chaim Jewish Primary School was set up in September 2012 with the aim of:
1) developing effective relationships between the staff, parents and other associates with the school; and
2) engaging in activities or providing facilities or equipment which support the school and advance the education of the pupils.
Over the past couple of years the PSA has made a great effort to raise some much needed funds for the school. Our exciting events have included; a family day at Belmont farm, a first aid talk, a Chanukah social and a family cinema event. Money has also been raised through the production and sale of a school calendar and tea towels as well as various raffles.
The funds raised to date have been used to purchase some playground equipment and to enhance the classrooms. The funds raised this year will be spent on improving the school library amongst other things.
- some playground equipment (quoits, hula hoops etc),
- 20 trestle tables,
- £100 at the beginning of each school year to each teacher to enhance their classroom,
We are proud to be purchasing the following items for the children to enjoy in 2015:
As our School is in its growth stage, the involvement and commitment of its relatively small parent body and the local community is both needed and most greatly appreciated.
