Several funding requests have been granted by the Greswold PTA over the last week, again demonstrating their desire to work in partnership with the school to further enhance the education of all the children here at Greswold.
After last week's funding of the theatre visit for year 2 about The Great Fire of London, several other requests are now being ordered and processed.
These include a long overdue athletics kit to be used by Y5/6 children at annual events such as Cross Country (Y6 boys' winners in 2022 and Y5 girls' winners in 2023), Sportshall Athletics (County Champions 2023) and Borough Sports' (3rd place in 2023). The kit itself has been chosen by the pupils and is similar to that worn by professional athletes, something which their recent exploits has fully deserved.
At the other end of the school, visitors to the upcoming Nursery and Reception nativity plays will see some new costumes funded by the PTA.
Finally, the positive impact of so many children scooting or cycling into school has not been missed, especially as the current storage spaces are literally overflowing! Therefore, additional scooter pods for KS1 and KS2 will be purchased, again funded by the PTA.
As a school community, teachers, staff, pupils and parents are extremely lucky to have such an active and busy PTA and for that, we are very grateful.
