All about us!

Our aim is to foster the wellbeing of the school and to provide links between parents and teachers. We also aim to enhance the financial state of Bryn Offa by providing the children with additional resources and greater opportunities through fundraising activities.

We organise events at school for the benefit of the children as well as raising money. In the past these have included discos, treasure hunts, bingo evenings and cake sales. In the past few years we have purchased many items for the school, including a new art easel for Class 1, aprons for the art room, a play wall in the playground, scientific models, guided reading books and atlas’s. At Christmas time, BOPTA arranges for a visit from Father Christmas and every child in the school gets a present.

We encourage volunteer involvement in BOPTA activities and we act as an important link between the teachers and governors of the school and parents. Being part of the committee is also a great way for parents or carers to make new friends whilst helping to make the children of Bryn Offa have access to additional resources that are outside of the school budget.

Any parent or carer of a pupil at Bryn Offa is automatically a member of BOPTA, and therefore welcome to any meeting and to get involved with our activities.

We have a new way for you to contact the committee. If you would like to get in touch, communication will now be via our new email. Please use the link below:

New Playhouse

Due to all the recent fundraising, we have been able to buy a new playhouse for the KS1 playground. It is a great addition to the playground and the children love it. Thank you for your continued support, making such purchases possible. Here are some pictures of the behind the scenes work from BOPTA committee members and Mr Jones, who came down to lend a hand.

New Thesauruses and Dictionaries for KS1

We had a request from Mrs Maxfield for some new thesauruses and dictionaries for KS1. We used some of the money from the last cake sale to buy these. At our latest meeting Mrs Maxfield came and brought us some lovely thank you cards from her class. It was so lovely to hear how much the children had used the new books we had brought and the committee loved looking through the cards they had made. Purchases like these are only possible due to the continued support we receive from the wonderful family at Bryn Offa.

BOPTA Christmas Raffle

Thank you to everyone who brought tickets for the Christmas raffle, we raised an amazing amount of £646. We will hopefully be using this money to partly fund the upcoming trip to Theatre Severn.

Easter Cake Sale

Thank you to everyone who came to the cake sale and everyone who donated the delicious cakes.

We raised an impressive £207.61!!

BOPTA Easter Trail

Thank you to all the children, parents, families and friends who walked the BOPTA Easter Trail over the Easter holidays. Despite some of the letters going missing, we had lots of entries! Thank you to everyone who took part. We hope the children enjoy their gifts for taking part!
