The next Dovedale Association meeting is:
The AGM is an opportunity for you to elect the PTA Committee, who represent the association throughout the forthcoming year.
There will be several existing committee members who are not able to stand for re-election this year. Many have served the PTA in key roles for many years and their children have now either moved or are moving to secondary school. As well as nominated committee members we also need to increase our numbers of willing volunteers to help at events. Things like running a sweet stall at a disco, managing a stall at one of the fairs and selling raffle tickets at a Christmas concert.
If you are interested in standing for a committee officer or ordinary committee member role, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to seeing you and meeting new members.

WINNERS - BEST WALKING PARTY
LONG EATON CARNIVAL 2019
Well done Dovedale on achieving Best Walking Party. We did it for the 3rd year running. The theme for the carnival this year was cartoons and comics. We entered as the cartoon 101 Dalmatians. What an amazing turn out from the children, parents and staff of Dovedale Primary School who took part. Thank you so much to everyone who came to support us.
New Playground Shelter
This fantastic structure has been funded by money raised by the schools PTA over the last few years. Thank you to all the PTA members who work so hard getting events planned and running smoothly. A huge thank you to everyone who has supported us by attending events, baking cakes and donating. Without your support we could not provide these extra things for our school.
The shelter is dedicated in the memory of a former Dovedale pupil, Taylor. Taylor was such a wonderful boy who sadly passed away in 2018. We will never forgot his smile. His brother, along with his mum Gemma, cut the ribbon on 3rd May 2019. It was lovely to see so many friends, family, parents and pupils of our school attending.
