Oaklands Schools PTA


Oaklands Schools PTA strives to raise funds to help improve the resources and facilities for the children at both the Infant and Junior Schools. This includes providing financial support for the teaching assistants, and providing equipment and extracurricular activities to enhance the educational experiences on offer.

Sadly, due to the current situation, opportunities have been limited to raise money for our Schools this year. We have therefore looked to new ways we can interact together as a Community whilst raising some much-needed funds too. We are therefore planning on taking part in a Virtual Easter Balloon Race.

The race is open to other organisations as well as to our School Community, and there are some great prizes on offer:
1st Prize - £500 Cash
2nd Prize - Apple iPad
3rd Prize - 10 x £10 Book vouchers

The overall winner from just our School Community will win a £25 Amazon Voucher, so there are multiple chances of winning!

Setting off from the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem at 12pm on Easter Sunday (4th April), the balloon race is a 7-day computer simulation race where everything is real apart from the balloon.

The race software uses live weather data to determine the progress of each balloon and each entry can be tracked once launched. You can alter your balloon’s parameters at any time to increase your chance of winning, depending on the prevailing weather conditions.

Each virtual balloon costs just £3 and you can give it a name, colour, shape and pattern. You can buy as many balloons as you like to increase your chances of winning – buy one for all the family and compete between yourselves. Invite as many family members/family as you would like to increase the friendly competition and to make a difference to your PTA! Please buy via the link at the bottom of this page. Happy flying!!

Our fundraising target is: £1000

Gross monies raised so far: £15

Supporters so far: 1
