Welcome to Sydenham School PTA
2024 International Women's Day - Thursday 7 March 18:30
We are excited to announce another live event to inspire and encourage students. The occasion is an opportunity to recognise women's achievements and highlight the importance of gender equality.
Line up is LIVE IWD 2024
Celebrating Black History Month
On November 2, 2023, we had the privilege of hosting a live talk event in celebration of Black History Month. Eight dynamic speakers from African and African-Caribbean backgrounds took to the stage to share their inspiring stories and experiences to parents, students, and carers. The atmosphere was electric, and the insights were profound! It was both a heartwarming and educational event that truly embodied the spirit of Black History Month.
Mental Health Group
The Parents/Carers Mental Health Network group has been meeting since 2022, and has been a great source of support for parents and caregivers and, through them, our students.
The group will continue to exchange advice and support, and we would like to extend our appreciation to Anna for arranging the professional workshops and organising the follow-up meetings.
Supporting the Dance, Music, Drama and Art performances: An Opportunity to Get Involved!
Sydenham School host a variety of creative events throughout the year, including art exhibitions, dance recitals, drama productions (such as the 2023 hit, Matilda), and musical shows like Battle of the Bands.
We're constantly looking for volunteers to lend a hand in serving drinks and snacks at the bar, and we gladly accept sponsorships from local businesses to ensure these events are a success.
Don't have the time to volunteer? No worries – you can still support our fundraising mission in many ways.
Attend one of our social events and buy a cake, sign up to Easyfundraising for Sydenham PTA to make a free donation or ask your company to give a donation!
Winter Concert: PTA Raffle - Christmas Hampers
The PTA was able to gather donations from the surrounding area in both 2022 and 2023 for Raffle prizes. At the Winter Concert hosted by the school, the PTA raffle was held while the PTA served festive bakes and drinks.
The feedback was overwhelmingly positive, and everyone agreed that it was a wonderful way to end the term. This social event should be marked in every parent's calendar.
Your contribution to our fundraising is always appreciated as it helps us to make a greater impact. Join our supportive community by donating whatever amount you can. Over the years we have helped fund instuments, outdoor learning, and school trips, benefitting every curriculum area and every Year group at the school.
We are currently focusing on the Orchard project, which is an initiative the school is working on. Our treasurer has informed us that there have been a few recent donations towards the project. A charity has kindly agreed to plant trees, however, we are looking for further support in providing landscaping and outdoor seating/planting.
Let us help parents this year to keep uniform costs down, at the same time as fundraising for your school. We are preparing for a second-hand uniform sale and need volunteers to sort through the uniforms. If you would like to help out with this, please contact us at email@example.com It's a good way to get to know other parents too.
In 2020 and 2021, we delivered Christmas trees to the local community, bringing warmth and light into many homes at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic while generating funds for the PTA.
Big PTA Quiz
We hosted the hilarious Scummy Mummies comedy duo and created a Big PTA Quiz that was a blast for all during the second lockdown, raising even more funds for our cause.
