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.

Photography Competition

Many thanks for all the wonderful entries we had for the recent photo competition. You all made it a very tough job for Mr Thompson & Mr Jones, who were the judges. We raised £120 which is a great achievement! This money will be going towards a new playhouse, which should be installed for use during the summer term.

Thank you also, to Matt Lee from the Spar at Chirk who kindly donated all the prizes. The judges were so impressed by the entries they thought they all deserved a treat, so all the entrants were given a small prize too.

The Oswestry advertiser has printed an article on-line, about the photo competition. Hopefully, it will be printed in the paper version so keep an eye out for it. The on-line version is on the link below.
