A Piano from PTA Funds
Over the years, funds raised by the PTA (and the very generous parents, pupils and friends who support their fundraising activities) have provided some superb equipment and resources that enhance teaching and learning at Withington. Costing more than £7,000, the most recent major purchase by the PTA is a magnificent concert-standard piano for the Junior School.
Placed in the Junior Hall, a wonderful open area overlooking the School playing fields, the piano is a Schimmel concert-standard instrument.
On a daily level, this rich-toned piano will make a huge difference to the quality of the accompaniment to the singing in Junior Assemblies. For Junior girls, the piano will enhance and facilitate their performance in musical recitals.
As always, the School is most grateful to the hours and effort the PTA Committee members put into fundraising for those extra luxuries that make such a difference to the life of the School.
The previous major PTA purchase, in 2014, was a second minibus and also the refurbishment of the existing one, both of which have made a massive difference to facilitating sports matches, DofE expeditions and day trips. In the same way, the new piano will open up a host of possibilities for Junior pupils.
Thank you so much, the Withington PTA!
