How is the money used?
Smitham PTA provide the "Extras" that otherwise just would not be there. In the last five years alone we have been able to spend over £58,000 for the benefit of our children - a reading chalet, flower bulbs, interactive whiteboards, reward stickers, laptops, outdoor shelters and classroom, steel pans, wi-fi, play equipment and much, much more.
We are currently raising money to equip the new Learning Resource Centre in the Expansion Building - a target of £10,000.
