We are made up from parents, teachers and community representatives who are all interested in enriching the children’s experiences in school. We meet every Tuesday in the family room to prepare resources for our fund raising activities and plan for future events.
Last year we helped to run a wide variety of different events across the school such as:
- Autumn and Spring discos
- Cake sales
- Xmas Fayre
- Summer Fayre
- Xmas and Easter bingo
- Father Christmas photos
We also helped out with the annual attendance treat, Hawaiian Heaven. Our members also come into school to help to make toast, help out with trips and weekly swimming sessions as well as spending time listening to children read.
As you can see there is something for every taste and we would love to have some more volunteers as you could have skills we have not tried just yet. We are always open to new ideas and suggestions and we look forward to working with you.
Our committee members are:
- Julie Murphy
- Lindsay Rodgers
- Pauline Roberts
- Sarah Stanton
- Keith Lewin
- Nicola Smyth
- Phillipa Malone
- Cherith Willshire
- Irene Power
- Gemma Mujungu
- Debbie Smith

Aims and Objectives of Kensington PTCA
The objectives of Kensington PTCA are to organise fund-raising activities, to involve as many people as possible and to make the activities fun and enriching for the pupils!
We will raise funds to help the school provide extra resources for the children by bringing together parents and teachers and working towards a common goal.
We will run social events for parents and children; providing an opportunity for people to get to know each other and have fun.
We will encourage parents to become more involved with their children’s school and to develop strong links between home and school.
We will provide support for school events and other special occasions.
The PCTA also run a school bank. You can save each week, all money is collected on a Wednesday. Children can save their pocket money and even just saving 20p a week can lead to a nice little amount by the summer to spend on your holidays.
