The PTA is for any parent that wishes to get involved and help to raise money for the school. The money raised goes back into the school and is for the children. In the past the PTA have raised money for new library books, pantomimes and even Easter treats!  Any contribution of time given to the PTA is of great value. If you think you can spare an hour of your time to help make an event great or could come to the PTA meetings and get involved then please get in touch using the contact below.

It's never to early to think about Christmas!
Friends of Kempston Rural Primary have teamed up with Merri Christmas Trees in Oakley, and for every tree purchased they will donate £5 to the school.
To take part in the Fundraising event all parents/guardians/friends/teachers of the school are required to do is:
(1)  book a date & time to come and select your tree.
(2) fill in a card to nominate Kempston Rural Primary School 
(3) Put the card in the box
So book a date and time to visit the farm now, tag your tree and pick it up in December.

Our Bedtime Stories was a popular event attended by over 100 children in Early Years, Key Stage one and of course lots of teddies too! The children listened to a few bedtime stories read by their teachers whilst the fireplace was roaring (on the interactive board) and then enjoyed milk and a cookie before bedtime.

Total amounts raised are detailed below. Thank you to all those who joined. 

£295.70  - Bedtime Stories
£27 - Pyjama day Ducklings 
£86.30 - Refreshment sales

The 10p challenge caused quite a stir amongst the children and staff and they battled to be the class with the most! Each class worked as a team to collect the most but the final winners were:

3rd place- Year 3 Owls - 20 metres 8 cm
 
2nd place- Year 2 Robins - 28metres 90cm
1st place - Reception Cygnets- 40m 55cm
Well done to all the Cygnets. As a treat they each had a giant bag of sweets, a band toy and they were allowed to come into school in their home clothes.
Altogether this event raised £707.20! What a fantastic way to end the school year. A further £67.50 was raised from the ice lolly stall on the last day of term.
 
Thank you to you all!
