How You Can Help the PTA

We all lead busy lives, however there are still several ways you can help your children at Langar School through the PTA…

Supporting the Committee

We’re all volunteers and organising and running events takes time and effort, so the more of us there are the easier it becomes. If you enjoy planning and organising events or have some fundraising ideas then you are very welcome to come to the PTA meetings.

Donating Time or Materials

Skills: Be they professional skills such as accountancy, cookery, secretarial, etc or something more fun like face painting, hair braiding or balloon modelling

Equipment: You may have access to equipment that would be useful for events (e.g. generators, lighting, bouncy castle) or donations for tombola’s and raffles.

Contacts: You may have contacts for stall holders for our various school fairs, media contacts for publicity or contacts for raffle prizes

Occasional Help: We keep a list of people who are happy to be asked on an ad hoc basis to help with setting up, clearing away, manning stalls, etc.

Sponsorship

Some companies have schemes the PTA may benefit from such as community grants or matched fundraising
