PJSA Meeting – Monday 1 July 2019 – 3.20pm

Our next meeting will be held on Monday 1 July 2019 at 3.20pm.  (Meetings are usually held on the first monday of the month.)  If you would like to join us and bring your ideas/suggestions please enter the school via the office and sign in.  Meetings are usually held in 3B’s classroom.  Children are welcome along too, but remain your responsibility at all times.  If you are unable to attend but would like to send in your ideas/suggestions please email us on the above email address.At this meeting we will be discussing the roles within the PJSA as, at the end of the academic year, we will be saying goodbye to the Chairperson and Treasurer.  If you would like to apply for these roles please email me on the above address or come along to the meeting to find out more about the work involved.

Forthcoming events:

Sports Day Refreshments – Tuesday 18 June (reserve – Thursday 12 July) – We will need help with setting up from 8.30am, throughout the day, until the clear up at the end of the school day.  It would be good if we could get volunteers to help, even for just 15 minutes at a time so that the PJSA team can see our children at sports day.  A member of the PJSA team will be on the stall at all times to guide you – you won’t be left on your own!

Details about the PJSA events will be displayed around the school, sent home via letter/Parentmail and are available to pick up from the PJSA rack in the Junior School reception area.

All profit made from the PJSA events benefits the children at Purbrook Junior School.

Helpers required:

We are always looking for helpers, as without helpers these events would not be possible.  Please contact us on the above email or by leaving your contact details in our PJSA post box (which is located in the Junior School office area) if you are able to help.  We are a friendly bunch of like minded parents/carers and being part of the PJSA is good fun for us as well as the children.


Sponsorship Requests/Expenditure:

We are in the final plans of the playground project and have funded an outdoor learning area for the children.  This will be built in an unused area of the school site and will provide a seating area and shade.

We have purchased a set of 8 virtual reality headsets for the use of the children of Purbrook Junior School which will enhance their technology and learning without having to take them out of the classroom.

We have purchased and installed new picnic benches from recycled plastic which the children are using at breaktimes. The fencing around this area has been refurbished and the Gardening Club are going to plant some hardy shrubs to further enhance this area.

Outside the library we have had some benches installed, including two “buddy” benches.  We aim to provide an area where the children can be outside whilst reading/learning.

These items have been raised from events held at the school by the PJSA such as cinema nights, disco, May Fair, Christmas Fair, Firework Night, Pantomine and Sports Day Refreshments to name a few.

If you have any suggestions where you would like future funds spent, please get in contact with the PJSA.

If you know of anyone who would like to sponsor any of our fundraising events via match funding or donations please pass our email address on to them.

If you know of anyone/business whom would help with volunteering at our events please ask them to contact purbrookpjsa@gmail.com – we would be really grateful for their help.

Thank you again for your continued support for the benefit of the children of Purbrook Junior School.
