The PTA hosted their first AGM at Keir Hardie. Our chair, Lisa Palmer, and core members fed back to the community regarding the PTA’s events, successes and how they could get involved in the future. Our treasurer, Diana Rus, also shared the PTA’s expenditure report with parents. Our core members have been re-elected for this year and will continue to work hard to drive and expand the PTA at Keir Hardie. We have also managed to recruit new parents to volunteer for our Movie Nights and the Winter Fair. Thank you to everyone who came to support!

Community Fair 2017

BBQ, Candy Floss, Pop Corn, Face Painting, Bouncy Castle, and much, much more! Keir Hardie’s Community Fair was a great success and we would like to say a big thank you to everybody for their help and support. A special thank you goes to our PTA for all their hard work in helping to plan, organise, set up and man the stalls on the day.


PTA Easter Bonnet Parade 

A big thank you goes out to all the members of the PTA who worked so hard to organise and host our first Easter Bonnet Parade. It was fantastic to see the results of parent/child collaboration in the form of such spectacular bonnets and baskets! We would like to thank our judges; Brendon (Year 5), Ms Symes and Mr Gunyon as theirs was truly an unenviable task, the standard was so high. We would also like to thank all those parents who donated easter eggs, cakes etc. and bought raffle tickets to help raise money for the school.​


Easter Bonnet-Making Workshop

The PTA Easter Bonnet making workshop was a huge success with many parents and pupils across the year groups attending. Parents and pupils worked collaboratively to create either an Easter bonnet or basket in preparation for the Easter Parade. We can’t wait to see all the creations come together at the parade! Thank you to all of the parents and carers for their continued support.

Winter Fair

The PTA has hosted their first Winter Fair at Keir Hardie. It was a resounding success and the fair raised £490 for the school. They would like to thank all of the staff, pupils and parents who volunteered and donated items towards the fair. A huge thanks  goes to Countryside for their generous donation of £500 which helped to fund the event.



Santa’s Grotto

It has been a busy festive period for our PTA, they have been organising presents for Santa’s Grotto at the Winter Fair. With their valiant efforts they managed to wrap in total 400 presents!
