During 2019 - 2020 we plan to keep parents informed in two main ways:
1. Newsletters requiring the return of a note / form / permission slip will be emailed, added to the website AND sent home in paper format.
2. Newsletters which do not have a note / form / permission slip will be emailed and added to the school website. These Newsletters WILL NOT be sent home in paper format.
For Safeguarding reasons, Email addresses of folk who no longer have children at Ampertaine will be removed from our mailing list on Thursday 31st August.

Our most recent newsletters are available here for you to download but our Newsletter email facility is now in operation.
Please complete the Newsletter subscription form below, adding your child's name and class after your name as in this example:  Name: Mrs. Mary Johns (Terry P4, Kerry P1).
Make sure your email address is accurate with all dots etc. in the right places.
We will check all requests before they are added to our mailings list.

    PTA Christmas Bag Pack - SAVE THE DATE!!

    Dear all, > > You will remember in September we had a very successful bag pack in Tesco Magherafelt. We mentioned at our Parents Evening, that it was our intention to do this again, as it was a simple and enjoyable way to raise money. > Last week, a parent received news from Tesco Cookstown that they had had a cancellation for bag packing on Monday 23rd December. As a PTA, we feel this is an opportunity we cannot afford turn down. It’s potentially the biggest shopping day of the year for Tesco, and we are allowed to man 7 tills from 10-6pm. We fully appreciate that parents may still be working or may have other commitments, however all we ask at this stage, is that you mark the date on the calendar and give it some thought. > The store will be buzzing, the Christmas music will be playing, we can wear our festive gear, and most importantly, people with very full trolleys, might just be glad to see us at the till!! Perhaps you could do your own Christmas food shop that day, and give us an hour of your time to bag pack before or after. Perhaps someone in your family, or a friend could help out for an hour or two. Any help at all would be appreciated. > > We will send more details in due course, but for now please note Monday 23rd December in your diaries. In Magherafelt we manned 3 tills and collected £730. The children who participated really enjoyed it too, and we plan to involve them again this time. The potential income for our school on this date is HUGE! Every penny is needed for our school. > > Every little helps! > > Ampertaine PTA
