Eastchurch School Heroes
The Eastchurch School Heroes is more than a usual PTA. There are parents and teachers on the committee. Heroes is currently run by Claire Jacobs (Chair) and Tracy Ryan (Treasurer). We currently have a vacant position for Secretary.
The committee organises events throughout the school year, including raffles, draws, race nights, quizzes and sponsored events. Its two main fundraising events of the year are the annual Summer Fayre and the September Fayre.
One of the pleasant jobs undertaken by the committee is deciding how to spend the money that is raised. The committee spends its money on extras for the school, which cannot come out of the school budget. Over the years they have provided many items, televisions, a computer notebook, a video camera, carpeting, large and small playground equipment, Christmas presents, trees and Easter eggs. They have also subsidised school outings and provided all kinds of extras for the classrooms.
The committee usually meets one evening a term at either of the school staffrooms. Meetings are very informal and new committee members are always very welcome.
