PRIMARY school students are taking part in sponsored activities to raise money for their school's Parent Teacher Association (PTA).

Pupils at Woodley Church of England Primary School are taking part in various activities such as bike rides and baking to help to raise money for their school's PTA after many fundraising events were cancelled.

Amy Hardy, a parent of two children at the school and co-chair of the school's PTA explained the PTA is "a group of parents/carers/grandparents and teachers who facilitate a calendar of fundraising events for the school".

She said: "The lockdown has meant not only have the children missed being at school but many of our fundraising events have had to be cancelled."

These include events usually held in the summer term such as discos, cake sales, a Summer Fair, Quiz Night and ice lolly sales.

Ms Hardy said to try and help raise some money for the PTA, students are taking part in different sponsored activities arranged by themselves and their families, whilst adhering to current Covid-19 advice, according to their own interests.

Two brothers have walked a half marathon for the school while others are completing bike rides and baking.

The school hopes to raise £3,000 and have so far raised £1,050.

Ms Hardy said: "Money raised for the school is vital.

"We have always benefitted from a wonderful community and are truly missing their charitable donations through this lockdown period."

The school's PTA is currently looking to spend any money received on learning resources for the children.
