We would like to take the opportunity to introduce the school PTA here at Rougemont.
As with all School PTA organisations, we have two main objectives:
Firstly, to fundraise for the whole school – from Nursery right through to Sixth Form. Teachers and staff are asked to submit applications to the PTA for funds to spend on items that are mainly considered outside of the school purchasing criteria. Ideally, these items all add to the children’s enjoyment and enrichment at school.
Secondly, the aim of the PTA is to generate a feeling of community amongst the school through the organisation of events such as the annual Grow a Pound; Christmas Fayre; Coffee Mornings etc.
In addition to events, we also have several existing initiatives including our Nearly New Uniform Shop, our School Lottery, Stamptastic and Giving Machine.
Nearly New Uniform
Rougemont School PTA has been registered with the official School Lottery Programme since October 2015. This allows parents and staff to purchase weekly lottery tickets. Simply visit www.yourschoollottery.co.uk and search for Rougemont School. Tickets cost just £1 per week and there is a guaranteed prize for one lucky ticket holder each week. There is also an additional weekly draw where the prize fund is £25,000. You can also set up a direct debit meaning you don’t even have to remember to buy a ticket.
Stamptastic manufacture amazing name stamps and ink that can label virtually anything (most fabrics, metal, wood & some plastics). The ink is guaranteed to last a year, but arguably is permanent. You can label clothes (including socks), pencil cases, water bottles. No more sewing or ironing on labels. No more losing your pencil case or P.E. kit! Now you can just stamp everything! If you place an order, please quote NP206QB and the PTA will get 20-30% cashback. https://stamptastic.co.uk/
Giving Machine is an online shopping portal that provides links to retailers’ websites. In return the retailer provides a cashback variable percentage of the amount spent. All the top names are on there, such as John Lewis, Marks and Spencer, Debenhams, Waitrose, Sainsburys, Argos, Amazon, Expedia. All you have to do is join the Giving Machine and select the charities that you wish to support. You can support any number of charities and apportion a percentage of your cashback to each. Naturally we hope that you choose Rougemont to receive a share.
Our sign-up code is 229153. Simply type this into the home page and you will be guided through the registration process. Once you are a member you can install a “Shop and Give” reminder which reminds you to use the portal if you open a retailer’s website direct. https://www.thegivingmachine.co.uk/
