Save Glashieburn PTA!

Last year, we raised an amazing   £6555.85.

Sadly, we do not have enough parents to form a PTA this year..

We will no longer be able to provide discos for our children, organise fairs/ Christmas cards or to afford the ‘extras’ like school trips, new learning/reading resources / laptops/i-pads or playground equipment.

Please don’t let this happen!

  • Take on a role on the committee**
  •   Come to meetings and share your ideas
  •   Help out at events
  • Come along and support our fundraising events.

Please take a minute to email

glashieburnpta@yahoo.co.uk
