Library refit – The re-fit of the library was completed in April 2016. The final total of PTA funding was over £7,000, creating a bright, inviting and exciting library for EVERY CHILD in the school!
Music items (£1000): To support music activities in the school the PTA agreed to fund
Forest School – purchased waterproof coats and trousers
Weather station (£300-£500) – A weather station has been sited in the school grounds which automatically sends measurements to a PC in school. This is providing an ever-changing source of data available to all classes to use for various subjects. It can also be fed into a national database accessed online to contribute to, and compare with, the national record of weather observations.
Sports kit – in a wide range of sizes to be used by any child representing the school at external sports matches and PE activities. The kit has helped children look like a team and to approach the activity with pride – a winning start!
Swimming instruction for KS2 – a swimming instructor worked with Hazeldown staff at Dawlish Leisure Centre during school KS2 swimming lessons.
Playground equipment for KS1 – including footballs, rugby balls, foam balls, bean bags, hula hoops and a football goal.
Dictionaries and thesauruses for all classrooms and the library, plus new books for the Accelerated Reader programme.
As well as raising important funds for the school the events aim to provide fun and a chance to socialise with other families. They also provide a means for parents to lend their support to Hazeldown.
