Keston C.E. Primary School PTA
Newsletter Winter 2023
A great start to the 2023/24 Fundraising!
We have had a brilliant start to our fundraising this term, with our usual School Disco mixed up with the new Keston's Got Talent, lovely self-portrait tea towels, and finishing this term on a festive high with our traditional Christmas Fair.
We hope those who came to the Christmas Fair really enjoyed it. A huge thank you to everyone who participated and helped us raise just under £1,700 on the day. So many of you worked so hard and donated items to make it a success so thank you.
In total, it means the PTA has raised almost £3,000 since September (and we're still totalling the money raised from the tea towels)!
The first ever Keston's Got Talent on November 10th raised over £1,200!
We put on the huge and spectacular inaugural Keston's Got Talent in November. We were delighted to announce the winners at the KGT Final - Louis, Raphael, Shivai and Miles! Well done to the boys and to all the acts, they did so well and should all be very proud of themselves.
And well done to the behind-the-scenes heroes like Poppy P and Josh on sound, Daisy U who led the Prop Team and to all the children who ushered, made the posters, helped with props and lighting - we absolutely couldn’t have done it without you!

Still not sure what the PTA is?
Everything from the school uniform shop; Discos and Film Nights; Keston's Got Talent and the Christmas and Summer Fairs; not to mention the teas and coffees at Parents' evenings, representing the school at local events and organising the Welcome Packs for new families. Plus updating Facebook & Instagram pages! It all takes planning, dedication and time - and we're hugely appreciative to everyone who makes these all happen
Who are your class reps?
The Class Reps do a brilliant job of communicating the latest news and updates from the PTA to the rest of the school. They are also in charge of getting every class involved in the events, so if you can help in any way, then they will love to hear from you!
