Wylam First School PTA is a team of volunteer parents and teachers working together to raise funds for our children’s school.  We organise various fundraising events throughout the year, including Children’s Discos/Jumble Sales/Easter Bingo /Curry Nights/Coffee Mornings/Summer Ball/ Summer & Christmas Fairs.


Joining the PTA is a rewarding and fun way to get involved with the school, and we would like to welcome any Parent or Carer, as your support would be valued very much.  We hope you will come and join us and bring with you any ideas for future events.  Look out for notices when our next meeting will be held or contact any member of the committee.


Please see our News & Events  page and select Fundraising Events for more details on our latest happenings.
