Parent Teacher Association
Three Rivers Academy has a very active PTA. We work closely with the school helping wherever and whenever we can for the ultimate benefit of our children and the local community.
To continue successfully we need the support of new parents to replace those that naturally leave us each year. So please don't dismiss us.
Wow what a day it was !
Thank you to all the helpers and runners without you it could not have happened.
Thanks to our sponsors, Robins & Day, James Neave, Paton’s, Bennetts Interiors & Walton Charity we were able to keep the entry fees down and raise £2500 for the school.
Social media has been buzzing with praise throughout the community and there have been many requests to hold another one next year. Looks like we’ve started something!
We had a fantastic response to our survey about a possible Comedy Night. Plans are now underway and we’ll be announcing the date for this event shortly.
Our Lottery continues to grow with the weekly prize payout now at £33.60. Since launching in September we have raised £1250 for the school. Anyone over 18 can join and don’t forget the Grandparents ! The more tickets we sell the bigger the weekly prize fund & the more we raise for the school.

We are always looking for ways to strengthen our links with the local community. Local business can make a huge difference to our fundraising efforts.
We are a registered charity which means we are able to receive charitable donations from both local and national companies. Do you work for a company that runs such a scheme? Do you work for a company that produce or sell items that we could auction or raffle?

Moving up to secondary school is a big step for parents as well as our children, particularly if you have been actively involved in your junior school community. The PTA is an excellent way however to keep in touch with school life. We are a very friendly bunch of people and if you would like to find out more about us we would love to see you at one of our meetings.
2019 Meeting Schedule:
Meetings start at 7pm and are held in the Teal Section at the Community end of the school.
