PTA Upcoming Events

Dorney School PTA


Dorney School PTA is a group of parents who volunteer their time to support the school by raising funds to pay for extras for the children.

All Parent/Carer(s) of children at Dorney are automatically members of the PTA, and are warmly invited to attend meetings or support at events to help raise as much money as possible to support children in school. Don’t panic though – there’s no obligation to take part, it’s just always easier to run events and raise vital funds if more people are able to give their time to help. Many hands make light work!

It’s great to be able to support the school and provide the children with resources that they might otherwise not have access to. It’s hard work though and we can only do it with your support.

SO, can you help us with any of the following:

1) Do you have any ideas we can use to fundraise?
2) Can you attend meetings and support the fundraising programme?

We are all busy people and there’s every chance that you might not be able to help us at all. If you can support us by helping at events but can’t get to meetings, that’s fine. If you can attend meetings but can’t help at events – no worries. We will be grateful for any input you are able to give us.

So go on, take the plunge and help us to raise even more money to make our children’s learning experiences at this young age even more exciting, helping them to create treasured memories that will last a lifetime.
