Thank you!

We would like to say AN ENORMOUS THANK YOU to all the Children, Mums, Dads, Grans, Grandpas, Friends, Businesses & the Amazing Staff who have helped us so much this year at Lenzie Academy PTA, and we hope you all had a great school year.

How much have the PTA raised, and what have we bought?

We have had yet another fantastic year with lots of fun events. We have held a Quiz Night, a Sponsored Santa Dash, a Race Night, 2 Online Raffles and a Doughnut sale. We have also raised money by being rewarded a Co-op Local Community Cause, by people joining The 500 Club & by using Easyfundraising when shopping online.

This school year we have raised a staggering £11,915 altogether!!!

With this fantastic amount of money raised we have bought a huge range of resources, enhancing our children’s education at school across every year group and every department;

  • Library Books – £158.23
  • Laptop & Editing Software – £565.99
  • Science Club Equipment – £200
  • Science Equipment & Laboratory on Wheels for the Chemistry Department – £1950
  • Celebration of Culture Heritage – £465
  • Go Pro Cameras & Hard Drives – £150
  • 3 year subscription to Online Maths Workout – £435
  • Geography Clinometer Equipment – £65
  • Wider Achievements – £50
  • Transportation for School Trips and Sporting Events – £2000
  • Transportation for Netball Event – £125
  • PE Kits – £1002
  • Geography Animal Man & a Mini Zoo to visit the school for a whole day – £400
  • Science Fair – £600
  • Bounce Back Day – £500
  • Equipment & food for the Columbia 1400 Leadership Academy – £140
  • Fischertechnik Gear Class Set to allow active learning within Engineering Science – £330
  • PE Entry Fee Costs for pupils entering Scottish School Athletics – £300
  • YPI Hospitality donation for students catering for LACE Events – £120
  • Art and Design Equipment – £65
  • Music Department iMac, Headphones, Digital Interface & Recording Programme – £1602
  • Folders for New S1 Pupils – £589.25

That equates to a grand total of £11,812.47 spent this year alone!

With continuing budget cuts, the PTA & our fundraising is becoming more & more important. As you can see from the list of items above, we are now being requested to purchase resources which are essential for pupils’ education, as well as more fun items such as trips & experiences.

Hopefully, with your help, we will be able to buy even more great resources next year. We will keep you posted…
