Cherry Orchard Parent Teacher Association had its inaugural meeting on Thursday 14th September to form the new Parent/Teacher Association.  The PTA then met on 19th October to elect their Officers and Committee Representatives at their AGM.

The following Parents are the elected Officers for 2017/18:

Chair:                Amie Lyons      

Secretary:         Ann Shergill      

Treasurer:        Stacey Brunsdon

More than twenty enthusiastic and dedicated Cherry Orchard parents meet each week to discuss how they can support the School and their children with fund raising ventures throughout 2017 and their two ventures have been extremely successful so far. If you are interested in joining the PTA, please come along to the next meeting or contact the Secretary to see how you can become involved.

Even if you are not able to afford the time to be part of the PTA, we would still love to see you at the weekly Coffee Morning, which will now take place from 8:50am until 9:30am on Thursday mornings, run by the PTA.


A very successful Family Halloween Ball took place on the last day of term run by the PTA, who are raising funds towards a stage for the School and the upcoming children’s Christmas Play.  The School Hall was turned into a spooky cave for the evening complete with skeletons and spiders and some very scary ghouls, ghosts and witches danced the night away to freaky music.

The next event on the PTA Calendar will be an Advent Christmas Fayre, which will be held on Friday 1st December from 3:30 onwards – come along and support them and open your first Christmas door……. click here to view the programme.  Book your ticket to see Santa in his Grotto and win one of the fabulous prizes in the Christmas raffle!  Lots of Christmas market stalls to buy Christmas stocking fillers.  Mulled wine and mince pies and plenty of hot food on sale from Olives will be available from 3:30 onwards.
