The Lakeside School PTA ( Parent Teacher Association) is a very active charitable body organising a range of fund raising and social events each year to help raise money for Lakeside school.
Regular events include discos for pupils, a Summer and Christmas fair, quiz nights, social events, shopping/pamper evenings, a duck race, calendars, cake and uniform sales and many more.
The group meet monthly either in the morning or evening on the Monday of the first full week every month in the Community Room. All parents/carers of pupils at the school and members of staff are welcome to attend these informal meetings. If you are new to the school, the meetings are a great way of meeting other parents and members of staff.

If you require further information about the PTA, please contact any of the above named members, the office staff, or ask friends you know to add you as a member! We have a WhatsApp Group and it really couldn't be easier to get involved.
The next one is Monday 4th March 2019 at 9am in the Community Room. All parents, carers and grandparents of current pupils are welcome.
These are once a month in general, and we ask 2 year groups at a time to provide the cakes. Please could parents of those children make/donate cakes and bring them to school on the Friday morning and your child can leave them in Mrs Mitchell's office and Mrs Frost's office.
Your PTA have raised funds to buy a defibrillator, enrichment items/experiences for each year group, sensory equipment throughout the school, playground equipment and adventure play facilities for both Foundation Phase and KS2 playgrounds. We bought a shop to sell from and store stock and we have also paid for laptops for the whole school through a lease agreement.
Our next exciting project is to provide a shaded area for KS2 children to use all year round but especially during the hot summer months. This area will provide the children with a place to sit and have their lunch, take part in outdoor learning activities and also a place that charity/PTA stalls can be held. We hope this multi-purpose space will add great value to the childrens experience in school. Plans have yet to be finalised but we are hoping to embark on this project as soon as possible.
Thanks to all who have helped and/or taken part in any of our past events. Well done Lakeside!

We are changing the way parent volunteers record their time.
From January 2018 you will need to record your time on a Volunteer Card and present this card to the school office to exchange your time for a Spice Credit Voucher.
The new cards will be available from Mrs Rundle in the school office from Tuesday 8th January 2018.
Vouchers are earned in exchange for volunteering in classrooms, attending school trips or assisting the PTA at events. The vouchers can be used in various places across South Wales, including Boulders, Ice Arena Wales, Jump and the Royal Mint Experience to name a few. The full list is available from justaddspice.org.
If you are interested in becoming a parent volunteer and earning Spice Credit Vouchers please email the school.
