Welcome to the PTA section!
 

What is the Woodridge School Association?

 

Every parent of a child at Woodridge School is a member of the Woodridge School Association (WSA). 

 

The aim of the WSA is quite simply to enable parents to become part of the school community and help support the school in any way that they can.  For some people this means coming along to one of the many events that the WSA organise, for others it’s helping to organise those events and raise much needed funds.

 

Everyone is welcomed and everyone has something that they can contribute.  You don’t need any particular knowledge or skills and it’s a great way to get to know other parents and is hugely rewarding.

 

The money the WSA raise helps cover the cost of equipment and activities which are not covered by the school budget. The WSA and staff work closely together to target how money raised is spent to achieve best value for both the school and pupils. Past projects have included:

 

  • Substantial contributions to school building projects, including a new reception class.
  • Refurbishing the main hall, including putting in a new sound and video system, stage and seating.
  • Play equipment in the playgrounds.
  • Inviting authors and poets to the school to enhance literacy lessons.
  • Providing equipment for the classrooms including digital cameras, laptops and books.
  • Music workshops.
  • Themed days; Greek, Tudor and Victorian.

 

The main fund raising activity is the annual school fete. We also organise other events throughout the year including cake sales, quizzes/bingo and a Christmas bazaar. Coming up is our exciting Kids on the Catwalk fashion show!

 

Parents' support really makes a difference and without the WSA the children at Woodridge would simply miss out on those experiences and activities which are not covered by the school budget.

 

The WSA is run by a committee of parent volunteers and a parent representative from each of the classes.  Everyone is welcome to attend the meetings and help with planning future events.
