Roman Way Supporters
Most schools have a Parent Teacher Association (PTA) and Roman Way is no different!
We have a wonderful group of parents who run events for pupils in the school with the aim of providing extra-curricular fun, and to raise a little money for the school while doing so.
The last two years have been tough for the Roman Way Supporters, as we haven’t been able to run full school events, but things are starting to come back to life once more.
Over the course of a full year, the supporters usually run:
· 2 full school discos
· Christmas fair
· Movie night
· Christmas shop
· Mothers day gifts
· Fathers day gifts
· A creative competition or two
· Summer fair
· Teas and coffees at school events e.g. Christmas plays and sports days
· Raffles and non-uniform days
The Roman Way Supporters are a registered charity (1187743) and have a number of elected officials to act as trustees. The money that the charity raises through their events goes into the charity bank account and then is spent almost entirely (excluding insurance costs) on school resources and activities.
The Roman Way Supporters have, for example, paid for new rugs for the library area, annual pantomimes, bouncy castles for leaver’s parties, resources for EYFS classrooms and new play equipment.
Our next fundraising aim is to help buy equipment for the new outdoor learning area. This is a transformed piece of land just behind the classrooms that was overgrown and boggy. The new area has a pond with a pond dipping platform, and areas for children to learn about their environment and the natural world. Pond dipping equipment, raised beds for planting and den building resources are just a few of the elements the team would love to fund.
We’re always looking for parents to join the team and help run the various events. The team meet regularly and have a great time both planning the events and on the day as well. We’d love for you to join in – you can put in as much time as you have available, every little helps!
