Birdwell PTA Quiz Night - Friday 6th March
Following on from the success of last year we have arranged another quiz! We hope you can join us for our now annual quiz night on Friday 6th March. There will be a 'Ploughman's Supper' sharing platter served during the evening to keep your energy levels up and a bar for well-deserved refreshments! Entry forms are downloadable from this web page (see below), are being emailed to parents/carers and will be in book bags after half term. It will be an enjoyable and fun evening and a chance to challenge what you know and maybe learn something new? We look forward to seeing you there!

Birdwell School PTA is registered with easyfundraising - a really easy way of making a little bit of money to pop into the PTA pot almost every time you shop.
Basically when you shop online you make a quick stop via the Easyfundraising website (or app), type in whoever you want to shop with, and click through to the site to make your purchase as normal. As well as shops there are hotels, days out, holidays, tickets for shows, insurance price comparisons etc, and every time you spend via one of the 3,400 registered companies we receive a small donation from them to say thank you (at no extra cost to you!) - easy-peasy!
So first of all, please click on the link (or copy it into your browser) to register: at https://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/causes/birdwellps/.
Then all you need to do is remember to click via the site (or app) every time you shop to quickly check if your retailer is listed. There's even a whizzy widget-type button (not the technical term) that you can download to your browser which activates an automatic alert to pop up on your screen to remind you that there's a donation available if you've forgotten to check yourself - amazing!
Thanks all - and happy shopping!😉
We are always looking at ways to increase funds for investing in our children's recreation. One helpful member of the PTA last year undertook "Matched Funding" this is where the company that you work for matches the funding that you raise for your school. For example, if you were to help out on a cake sale / fair stall, then you may be able to claim for your time and the funds that you raise. Please could we ask if you could see if your employers operate this scheme. If they do and you are willing to help out, please contact to discuss this matter.
