Ranelagh School PTA puts the FUN into fundraising! We exist to raise money for the school to help pay for new resources and projects which our children benefit from but we also want to make friends and have fun in the process so that the Ranelagh experience is a positive one for the whole family. We raise money by organising different events throughout the year including a Christmas Fair, Quiz Night, Tribute Night and summer Founders Day. We are always looking for new ideas and ways to boost funds raised! We're really blessed to have plenty of willing volunteers who come to meetings once a term and help at events. Funds raised pay for new materials and resources or support projects such as student well-being initiatives. Staff write bids which the PTA then collectively agree to fund. In 2018-2019 a key focus has been to raise money to refurbish student toilet facilities. This year we have agreed to donate an amazing £60K towards this project so the first phase of refurbishments can start in the summer of 2019. We are grateful for any amount you are able to donate and would sincerely like to thank you for your support.
Ranelagh School PTA
Ranelagh School Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is a group of parents and carers who organise social and fundraising activities to help raise money for Ranelagh School. We are separate from, though very much complement, the other fundraising arm of the school called Friends of Ranelagh. Money raised by the PTA goes towards special requests made by teachers to add value to and enhance the education of students at the school. Spending is agreed by members of the PTA which is made up of people from the parent body. Typically money raised does not support core services which have traditionally been funded by the Department for Education and the other charitable arm of the school - Friends of Ranelagh. However, as capital resources deplete year on year, the pressure of providing core services and maintaining school facilities has become even greater and so we have agreed to support a special project to refurbish some of the student toilet facilities in school which are in desperate need of refurbishment. This special appeal is supported by the students themselves, including the Student Council and we feel this is something the students will directly benefit from for many years to come. We will continue to support other funding bids received from the teaching staff through funds raised from our programme of events and activities. Funds raised through this special appeal will be used to help fund the refurbishment of the toilets. Please consider making a one-off or regular donation towards this project by donating online.
