Heathside PTA are delighted to be supporting the school with £10k of funding towards the building of an exciting new outdoor classroom and eating area, plus additional funds to help with furnishing the area.
On 14th July, a team of 25 amazing supporters will be running the Weybridge 5k Colour Run to raise funds towards this fantastic new build, so please support them and this fundraising campaign!
Our PTA Co-chair, Jenny Barden says:
We're so pleased to be supporting the school with the building of this fabulous new area, creating an 'outdoor space' which can be used all year round to promote well being and learning for all Heathside pupils
The team so far includes Sylvie, Danny & Joe Kent; Natalie, Erin and Rhys Whitaker; Kara & Tyra James; Annabel Hurrell; the Achterberg family; Gail Snyman, Lionel, Samantha & Roxy Smith; Sam and Thea Dickinson, and a few others who want to remain anonymous for now - see below for photos of some of our fabulous team. Email PTAchair@heathside.surrey.sch.uk if you would like to join us: there's always room for more!
This is an exciting new building for the school, which will give more capacity at lunch time, a flexible space for learning and private study, as well as promoting mental health and well-being via access to the outdoors. The PTA have focussed on supporting mental health and well-being throughout the year, so funding the outdoor classroom is a great highpoint to end on.
The PTA have provisionally ring fenced 10k towards the build costs, but would also love to support the school in furnishing the area to make it as great as possible for all Heathside students. Any fund raised through this campaign will help us to support the school more fully, with the PTA hoping to provide any shortfall from existing funds.
