Nailsea School PTA have launched a weekly lottery with Your School Lottery to raise funds, with the first draw on Saturday 26th June 2021. Tickets cost £1 a week and participants have the chance to win up to £25,000.
Parents of Nailsea School students and members of the local community are invited to take part in the new fundraising initiative. The lottery, specially created for schools, ensures money goes towards schools as well as participants.
Any money raised by the lottery will go towards the students at Nailsea School and bettering their experiences. The PTA aims to raise funds for enrichment activities and equipment. Due to coronavirus restrictions, the PTA have been unable to run their usual fundraising activities, so they are therefore using virtual fundraising solutions.
Nailsea School Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is made up of over 30 volunteers from the local community who raise and provide funds to benefit the whole school. As well as fundraising, the PTA support the community with social opportunities. Staff, pupils, parents can submit tenders to the PTA for funding requests.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the PTA is fundraising virtually. Opportunities are advertised on social media, as well as emailed to parents.
The PTA meet for committee meetings 5 times a year. Within these meetings, bids for funding are voted on. Find out more about the PTA and its role on the Nailsea School PTA webpage.
