UCTC PTA is a group of parents and teachers/supporting staff that raise funds to provide enhancements for the college. These are extras that we provide over and above what are already provided by statutory funds.
The PTA raises funds in many different ways, but whatever the event, it is always fun, enjoyable and social. We provide running bars at many of the college’s events for example; Acoustic Night, Autumn Concert, theatre productions in the Pamphilion Theatre, quiz nights, we offer mince pies and mulled wine after the Carol Service and not forgetting our annual highlight, Christmas Indulgence.
Over the past year to date we have been able to help fund the college with providing, a new Eco pond liner for the pond in the Eco area, table tennis tables for the club, state of the art lighting and t-shirts for Startech, year group awards, PE badges and restoration of the piano in the main hall. We are currently in the process of funding a new outside work area for the Eco Club, this will give the students the ability to work outside and make good use of their environment, whatever the weather!
The PTA is fun, friendly and very much a worthwhile project. You can involve yourself as much or as little as you like. It is also a great way to involve yourself with your child’s education. If you would like to join us, you are most welcome at any of the scheduled meetings throughout the year.
The officers of the PTA are:
Chair – Nick Gibson
Vice Chair- Julie Shannon
Secretaries –Kathleen Southall and Karen Keeling-Munn
Treasurer – Wendy Pengelly
The PTA would like to express their thanks to everyone who is supporting the PTA and with the amazing work, however big or small, that is achieved.
