PTA donates new tops to mark the youngsters' final year at primary school
Year 6 pupils at Seaton Primary School have been given new hoodies to wear throughout the year – a gift from the PTA to mark their last year before moving on to secondary education
They feature the school logo on the front and the pupils’ names on the back, alongside the figure 15 – marking the year in which they will finish their time at the primary school.
Rather than waiting for the students to leave, the PTA decided to give the hoodies at the start of the academic year so that they could wear them throughout their time at school and at events.
The school’s head of teaching and learning, Kate McFarlane said: “All at Seaton Primary School are thrilled with the PTA’s generous gift of leavers’ ‘hoodies’. Our Year 6 students have wasted no time and are already proudly wearing them! It is a lovely way to recognise Year 6‘s special place in our school.
“On behalf of students, parents and staff I’d like to say a heartfelt thank you to Seaton Primary School PTA for this gift and indeed for all they do for our students at Seaton Primary School.”
The PTA raises much needed funds for the school each year which is spent on equipment and resources to enhance the students’ education and facilities in school. Later this term they will be organising their popular free Christmas Bazaar, on December 4, which includes everything for Christmas from chocolate tombolas, local crafts and hand-made presents, home-made cakes and jams to Glitter tattoos, badge making and more. Entrance is free
