Parents are encouraged to be involved in our school. The Parent Teacher Group (PTG) is a group that helps BSD with a range of activities for parents. Meetings take place in school throughout the year. Events include (but are not restricted to) the walkathon, a ‘seasonal’ visitor event and the Annual Spring Fair. The PTG welcomes parents who would like to help promote and run these events.
Who are the PTG?
The BSD Parent Teacher Group (PTG) is run by parents and staff. We aim to plan activities for our kids and raise funds for our school whilst having fun. We need parent volunteers to help us run activities throughout the school year and to raise funds for our children to enjoy all those ‘extras’ we provide that are outside of the normal school budget.
What does the PTG do?
We meet regularly to plan fun events and fundraise. We are always open to new ideas. Our previous events include, end of term celebrations, International Day, and the Spring Fair. Examples of items we have purchased through fundraising include: extra playground equipment, the student kitchen, Year 6 and Year 11 end of year gifts.
Research shows that kids whose parents are involved in their schools do better.
