Proud to support Sheringdale PTA.
Welcome to the Sheringdale PTA Hub. And thank you for checking in to see what we are up to this year. There are plenty of exciting PTA events and initiatives coming up in 2023, so check back regularly for the latest. There are loads of ways to get involved too, by donating items for events, buying raffle tickets, cakes, or toys at our various sales, or volunteering for a slot on one of your class’s stalls at an upcoming event. We look forward to seeing you.
A Successful Spring Clean Out
The Sheringdale Second-Hand Clothes Collection took place on Thursday, 23 March. Everyone had a chance to have a clear out before the Easter break with a Happy School Bag collection.
Happy School Bag works with schools, and helps the environment by diverting unwanted textiles away from landfill and specialises in good quality second hand clothing that can be re-used. Click the link below for full details and to check out the list of items they accept. In return for every kilo of donated clothing/textiles, the PTA receives a sum towards our fundraising efforts.
Thank you so much to all for the kind donations. We collected 122kg of clothes and raised £48.80! So well done everyone. Watch this space for the next collection.
There is lots going on this year. Two important upcoming dates for your diary are:
The Coronation Disco, 5 May 2023
The Sheringdale Summer Fair, 8 July 2023

Investment in VR Headsets
Virtual Reality Headsets have arrived at Sheringdale!
The PTA has provided £6,649 funding towards virtual reality headsets for the entire school to use.
Year 5 were lucky enough to be the first year group to test them out on 01 December. Every class will get a chance to use them at least once in the first half of the spring term.
