Greetings from the Thorpe Community Association, (TCA) - the parent teacher group for Thorpe Primary School.
As a team we plan, organise and deliver many exciting events to raise funds to support the children in all areas of the school.
Currently all of our key members either have children at Thorpe Primary or work at Thorpe (or both!), so are directly involved with the school every day.
School is about partnership between parents, teachers and children. In recent years through fund raising our TCA has bought library books, playtime games and given support for our Foundation Stage area. We are always looking for willing helpers to support our events.

Joining The TCA
The TCA are always looking for willing helpers to support our events. There are endless ways in which you can help, many of which do not require long hours, regular meetings or heavy commitment - these include helping at fetes and discos, wrapping prizes, setting up for events, prize donations or bringing new ideas to meetings. We would be particularly interested to hear from anyone in local business who may wish to sponsor particular fund raising projects and advertise with us, or donate a prize associated with the business (such as a free meal).
Please feel free to approach any member of the team or leave a message at the school office for one of us to be contacted if you would like any information on joining and supporting the TCA.
