Hello everyone, we are Glasllwch Primary PTA and we’d like to introduce our new committee.
Who we are
Our PTA Chair is Joe Wightman. His son Joshua is in Year 2. If you want to discuss any issues, Joe is on the yard most mornings, and helps out with football coaching on Friday after school.
The Vice Chairs are Hayley Day and Catrin Roberts. Hayley’s son Archie is in Year 2, and Catrin’s daughters, Kate and Anna, are in Year 2 and Reception
Our new Secretary of the PTA is Rachel Thomas. Rachel has two daughters, Sophie is in Year 1 and Isobel in Nursery.
Our Treasurer, Louise Reynolds, Her children are in Years 3 and 6 and she is also a local child-minder so you will see her around school both in the mornings and afternoons.
Also on the PTA committee are Sharon Lindsey, Kath Cook, Ceri Sully, Liz Willey, Una Gunter, Suzanne Foster and Chris Pascoe.
What we do
Glasllwch receives less local authority funding than other schools in Newport because of our location, so the PTA is a vital source of income. We give our time and energy to ensure that our school and our children are well equipped.
Last year we paid for classroom resources, reading books, picnic benches, Ipads & charging stations, football equipment and lots more. Mrs Jackson has already given us her wish-list for this year, so we need to work just as hard!
September’s BBQ was a big success and we hope to have your much appreciated support for the upcoming events below.
