So, what do we raise the money for?
All profit from our events goes directly to the school.
For the school year 2016/17 a huge £ was donated!
Our current project to regenerate the disused and overgrown pond within the grounds of Poulner Junior School has been funded by the PTA funds raised over a few years and a generous grant of £3,000 from Hampshire County Councillor Michael Thierry.
In 2014 the PTA funded the installation of ‘The Getaway Room’ which is a brilliant resource for small group work, music lessons, and the lunch club. Other previous funds have purchased new curtains for the school hall as well as funding Science and English resources, the year 6 leavers' books, football goals for the playground, gardening equipment for the class gardening plots and all-important safety equipment to aid in the running of the swimming pool, some new equipment for the lunch time club and other bits and pieces from the teachers' wish-lists.
