School Year 2017-18 

Due to a lack of uptake and general apathy, it seems likely that we will have to cancel our third successive fundraising event. A small number of volunteers invest a great deal of time and effort in planning and organising events, and other initiatives, to raise funds for the school. Money raised by the PTA covers the cost of all non-residential school trips, craft supplies and other extracurricular activities and experiences for ALL children in the school, we also fund-raise for extraordinary expenditure such as the major ongoing IT-infrastructure upgrades taking place at school. We realise that the events we put on might not be everyone's cup of tea, and we would really appreciate YOUR feedback as to the sort of fundraising initiatives you would be willing to support. With only a very small number of families associated with the school, it is crucial that we manage to put on events that amass wider support so as to avoid the demoralising and disheartening experience of having to cancel events to avoid making a loss. We would love to see more parents involved. Some of the parents on the PTA committee are full-time parents, some work part-time, some work full-time. We all want to help the school but NONE of us are fundraising experts. So please join in, e-mail us at committee@marksbury-pta.org.uk with your suggestions, absolve yourself of guilt by making a generous donation via PayPal or cheque... or better still, come along to our events even if they are not necessarily how you would choose to spend a Friday evening. You might be surprised, it could be fun and a great opportunity to expand your social circle and get to know more of the parents whose children your own call friends?
THIS IS YOUR FINAL CHANCE TO GET TICKETS FOR RACE NIGHT AT MARKSBURY VILLAGE HALL ON FRIDAY 23 FEBRUARY, IF WE CANNOT INCREASE OUR NUMBERS BY MONDAY 19 FEBRUARY WE WILL HAVE TO CANCEL THE EVENT TO AVOID MAKING A LOSS.
You can still get tickets even if it is now half-term, simply call or text Christel on 07796673550, Hannah on 07411166674 or e-mail the committee on committee@marksbury-pta.org.uk to reserve your ticket to pay on the door, or buy online at https://tinyurl.com/rn2018

Next event : Race Night
Following the successful race night held at the Compton Dando Village Hall during the 2016/17 school year, the PTA is hosting another race night on Friday 23 February 2018. This time the race night will take place at Marksbury Village Hall, and the doors open at 7PM with the first race at 7.30.
Get your glad rags out of the cupboard, book a babysitter and bring your wallet as we get together in the village hall for an evening of fun! We will be serving a selection of curries, including vegetarian options, and food is included in the ticket price. Tickets are £7.00 each, and all profit raised on the night will go to fund extracurricular activities and equipment for the school. There will be a cash bar and betting stall.
Maybe you remember what a cracking night the last one was, perhaps you have a penchant for gambling or just fancy coming out to socialise with, and get to know other parents at the school and the local community. Don’t delay, get your tickets now!
Tickets are available for sale until Monday 19 February 2018.
You can pay for your ticket online using PayPal (you do not need a PayPal account) click this link https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=DWNRYRBZPMZDW
If you prefer to pay in cash or by cheque, then you can send payment in to school. Tickets are also available directly from Christel (07796673550) or Hannah (07411166674).
Tickets purchased online or via the school office will be sent home in bookbags after half-term.
If you have any questions about race night, dietary restrictions that you need us to cater for, or you fancy lending us a hand on the night – please do not hesitate to drop us a line to committee@marksbury-pta.org.uk.
We look forward to seeing you all on Friday 23 February!
