What’s the PTA for?
We support Maple School and its families by organising social events whilst fundraising for additional resources, such as;
- A new library
- An outdoor classroom – ‘The Porch’
- Refurbishment of the children’s kitchen & inner courtyard
- New sports kit and equipment
- Installation of acoustic panelling in the dining room
- All-weather athletics track & outdoor gym
- Reception courtyard update
- Outdoor chess and ping pong tables
Uniform outlet and Second-hand Uniform shop THIS Friday 4th Dec from 2.45pm
The preloved stock will be available for purchase PLUS some new surplus items that we are hoping to sell-through (at half price). Reversible raincoats, hats, scarfs, and some larger size fleeces. Card facilities will be available – although cash preferred as we don’t pay any fees. Please remember to wear your mask. Hand sanitiser will also be available.
Christmas Shop! THIS Fri 4th from 2.45pm
We will also have some Christmas items available to purchase, including Christmas wreaths, mini Maple mascots, the 50th design-reusable shopping bags, and additional raffle tickets. We hope to have the Recipe Collection available too! Come & see us over at the table tennis tables.
Via a Maple dad, Yoto have kindly given parents a 10% discount (and 5% commission to Maple PTA). They have also generously donated a Yota Player to the raffle!
