Ashill PTA has been running since September 1972. Despite catering for a different generation our aims are similar today as they were then. We support the school by fund raising, holding social events for the children and parents and providing parental assistance with events and activities as required. We invite support from all parents for our activities throughout the year to help make the events a success.
Our AGM is held in the first half term of the new school year usually in October. Membership of the PTA is open to all parents, carers and associates of the school.
PTA funds support the education of the children. We pay for the coaches for all school trips, greatly reducing the cost to parents. We have also recently contributed to the buying of provisions for the Breakfast club. This Year our main aim is to raise funds to go towards the extension of the school hall.
