Castle Gardens Primary School, Newtownards


The PTA of Castle Gardens key aim is to engage in activities which support and advance the education and welfare of children attending the school.

Through various fundraisers and by providing support and assistance to the staff, the PTA has enriched the resources but also the facilities for the pupils of Castle Gardens.   

In the 2015/16 school year, the PTA raised over £6,700 and this allowed school to purchase more iPads, Christmas outdoor lights, a new whiteboard projector for P4, sports equipment & new set of buddy sweatshirts. The PTA also funded the P7 June day out and evening prom, Mr Mawhinney's retirement tea party as well as covering the transport costs for a trip for each class.  

If you feel you could assist, even if only for a couple of hours, please get in touch. Any help will be greatly appreciated. 

This year even more events are planned. More details will be sent home closer to the time as dates may change.
