The Cwmlai Parent Teacher Association needs a logo

and we want you to design it!

We are looking for an eye-catching logo to use on our posters and letters that represents

who we are – school staff, parents, family, local community –

and what we do – raising money in fun events to enhance our children’s experiences at school.



è Draw your design in the box below

è Make sure it contains Cwmlai PTA in it

è Write your name and class on the back of this form


è Don’t use lots of tiny details as this will not be clear when the logo is small

è You might like to use the school colour (burgundy) but you don’t have to

è Have a look at other logos you like for inspiration


Rules of Entry:

Ø Competition is open to all children in all classes in Cwmlai Primary School. One entry per child.

Ø Completed entry forms should be returned to the PTA logo design entry box in the school reception by Friday 8th March

Ø Entries should be designed by the children only

Ø The winner will receive Free Admission tickets for 2 people to FuZe Play Centre, Tonypandy

Ø All artwork will become the property of Cwmlai PTA and may be used in, or altered for promotional material





Aviva Update


Unfortunately we were not successful in winning the £10,000 fund application but we were very lucky to be awarded £500 by Aviva in recognition of our hard work in getting to the finals!!

So a big THANK YOU to everyone who supported us and took the time to vote for us.


The £500 will go towards our fundraising target this year to buy a class set of Chromebooks. 

We've entered the Aviva Community Fund to ask for £10,000 for IT equipment for the school - a class set of Chromebooks and an ActivPanel interactive board.

There's just 1 week left until voting closes at midday on 20th November so don't delay!


Please take the 5 minutes to register and vote for Cwmlai Primary School IT Improvement on the link below it would be massively appreciated!


And if your family, friends, neighbours and anyone you've ever known could too, that would be amazing! (As long as they are over 13 and live in the UK!)

Only the projects with the highest votes go through into the final round of considerations and the children would love using this IT in their lessons!


Thank you!
Cwmlai PTA
