School fundraising and how it is used

I thought it would be good to show you all how we've raised funds for the school in the past and where the monies have been spent, as it's due to the generosity of parents, family, friends and the public that our pupils are able to benefit greatly.


In 2016/2017, the majority of PTP funds were spent on purchasing lots of classroom reading books, school monogrammed hoodies for our sports teams to wear at school events, K'Nex kits for the whole school to use, contributions towards school trips and outings and as always, providing food and prizes for school events.

So far in the 2017/2018 school year, we have purchased more games for Maths Club, leaving gifts for PTP members that retired and part-funded the school trip to the panto at a cost of £975, so you can see, every penny we raise is much needed and greatly received!
We are part-funding a whole school trip to the McTaggart Gymnastics centre again this year as the children all loved this last year and we also have money allocated for a nursery trip and for the P7 Final Fling.  We hope also to be able to provide IT equipment for classrooms ready to use when the WiFi is up and running.

Over the Christmas period, the PTP provided refreshments at the Nativity and Christmas service and donations given raised over £150.  Santa also made a visit to the village one evening and raised £157 so thank you to all for supporting our PTP!

Thank you for again supporting the Christmas cards project last year.  The total raised from this was £56.50. 

We will find out at our next meeting and AGM on Thursday 6th September what funds the staff are requesting and their wish list for next year.

This list will grow as the year goes on, every penny raised goes back to the school so that our children can benefit from it!  


I'd also like to remind you about the Easy Fundraising scheme.  If you shop online, you can support the school simply by registering on with Monikie Primary - Angus as your chosen cause.  From this page, you can then be forwarded to thousands of different online stores and when you shop as normal, a percentage will be donated by that company to the school.  It's so easy and you can ask anyone to use it, the more the better!


Many thanks to all that help with fundraising and for donations to the school, we are extremely grateful!
