Arden: preparing you for a world of opportunity

Welcome to the Arden PTA

Dear All

The PTA would like to ask for your support in continuing their fantastic fundraising work.

Currently, the PTA consists of a core group of very committed parents who have worked tirelessly over the years to raise on average £20,000 per annum for the benefit of Arden students. Many of this core group have children in upper school which means that the PTA will be seriously depleted over the next couple of years.

There are a number of high profile and very successful events, such as the Fireworks Display and Hollybash, which are very rewarding and great fun to be involved with.

The PTA would like to ask for a boost to its Committee, which meets once a month here at school. Each meeting is attended by a member of the Arden Management Team and it is a great opportunity to share information. If you can spare on average 1-2 hours per month of your time and have some great fundraising ideas please consider joining the Arden PTA.

The next Committee Meeting is on Tuesday 7 October at 7.45pm in the Conference Room at School. If you would like to come along and see if it's for you, or would just like to find out more information, please let me know by emailing [email protected]

Many thanks for your consideration.Arden PTA

Arden Parents Teachers Association

The Arden PTA is dedicated to “Making a Difference” and “Giving Support”

This can be seen as a number of goals;

  • To develop the links between Arden and the parents, or carers, of the students that attend and to promote the Arden Family approach.
  • To raise money to pay for items which will enhance the learning and fulfilment of the students so that they can maximise their potential.
  • To have some fun whilst we achieve the first two goals.

The proceeds which are generated from the numerous PTA organised events are donated to the applying departments by means of “bids for financial support”

With items such as professional sound and lighting systems, science and research equipment and the logo’d minibus to transport groups and teams to concerts and sporting events, the PTA gives financial support where it can make a real difference.

The Arden PTA are always grateful for the help received from Arden, the students, staff, parents and helpers, plus assistance by means of sponsorship from the local business community. If you would like to know more about what we do then please take a look at our website or seek out a committee member at one of the forthcoming events.
