Friends of Rye Community Primary and Pugwash Nursery is your PTA.



January 2017 News Update

We are here to work with the school to support and fundraise for pupils and parents throughout our school and nursery and to support our parents' voice within the school.

In December, we constructed a willow dome, which should start showing some serious growth in the spring and provide shade and an outdoor learning area for the children in the summer. Thank you to all the hard work from many of our PTA and local businesses for their donations. See photos below.

We have counted up all the money earned at the Christmas Fair and are very happy to tell you that we raised £1,371.58. We are sure the children enjoyed welcoming you into their classrooms and we are already thinking about what we can do to make our next Christmas Fair even more fun. We would like to thank everyone who helped out and all the businesses that made donations to the raffle.

Coming up in term 4, we will be holding a quiz night for grown-ups on 10th March and a Spring Fair on 23rd March.

We are pleased to announce that we have just co-opted two new Class Reps: Heidi Gould for Seahorses and Jess de Cesare for Sardines.

All of our Class Reps would love to get to know all of the parents in their classes better and will be happy to pass on any questions you have but any of our committee will be happy to chat in the playground. You can also leave your details at the school office, email us at or phone or text us on 07983 574 528.
