PTA Events & Bring a Gift Day

Minutes of our AGM below have some details about upcoming events.   Last year the PTA funded just under £8000 of digital equipment and maths resources. The school are extremely grateful for this as without your support, in this financial climate, these are items our children would not have.   PTA Bring a Gift Day is on Friday 26th October where the children are asked to bring in a gift which can be used as a prize at our Christmas Fair in lieu of wearing school uniform. Bottles, chocolates, pamper sets, toys are all very well received. Diolch yn fawr for your support as always with this.   Tickets will be available from the school office for the Christmas Shopping & Pamper Night from Monday 15th October.   The PTA have a new email address barkerslane.pta@gmail.com where you can email any fundraising suggestions which can be considered by the committee.   We would also be grateful if any parents who work for a company who match fund events could contact the PTA.   The next PTA meeting will be 9am on Friday 26th October to organise gifts and then follow up. All welcome.

PTA Welcome Meeting

As you will be aware from the school calendar, the PTA Welcome Meeting takes place on Wednesday 26th September 7-8pm in the school hall – we would love to see you there. Don’t be put off by stories of ‘select groups’ / ‘cliques’ – we want everyone involved and as much support as we can!  

The PTA is an integral part of the school community, raising over £104,000 since 2005 which has funded equipment and resources to enhance educational experiences and the school environment.

In these challenging economic times, the work of the PTA and support of families is invaluable.

In 2017-18, the PTA raised approximately £9000 and funded over £1000 worth of maths equipment, Christmas gifts / activities, new laptops, apps for learning and 19 Chrome Books with a charging trolley.

The children would not have access to all of this without the support of the PTA.

Please come along and listen / make some suggestions / offer help if you can.

Headlice – Please check hair this weekend

 

Unfortunately it is not only the children that have returned to school after the Summer holidays. We have had a fairly large number of parents informing us about headlice.

The only ways to reduce the risk of lice spreading is by avoiding head-to-head contact, which is why they spread so quickly amongst children. To reduce the risk please ensure that long hair is fully tied back (ideally in plaits or full pony tails) and that your child’s hair is regularly checked at home, ideally using a detection comb.

PLEASE CAN ALL PARENTS CHECK HAIR THIS WEEKEND IN AN ATTEMPT TO REDUCE THE NUMBERS OF CHILDREN WHO ARE EXPERIENCING RE-INFESTATION.

Treat head lice as soon as you spot them. You should check everyone in the house and treat them on the same day if they have head lice.

Wet Combing – Lice and nits can be removed by wet combing. This method should be tried first.

This is best done with a special fine-toothed comb (detection comb) to remove head lice and nits.

(1) Use the comb on wet or dry hair – although it usually works best on wet hair with conditioner. (2) Comb the whole head of hair, from the roots to the ends. (3) Repeat every few days for 2 weeks.

It usually takes about 10 minutes to comb short hair, and 20 to 30 minutes for long, frizzy or curly hair.

Ask your pharmacist for advice if you have tried wet combing for 2 weeks, but your child still has head lice or nits.
