At the Zoom presentation ceremony today 5th February 2021 St John’s Primary School PTA received a £1,216 cheque from Classlist to support their Forest School.
Classlist is partly funded by local sponsors. Where school communities help find advertisers they keep 25% of proceeds. See examples of other Classlist cheque presentation ceremonies here.
St John’s Primary School PTA from Clifton, Bristol introduced local businesses who went on to advertise on the Classlist app, including swim school Splash Happy and art school Chandos Atelier. Hazel Lees from Splash Happy provides swimming lessons for local pupils – and with pools closed is helping set up local COVID vaccination centres. Emma Wreyford’s Creative Maker sessions and videos from Chandos Atelier help kids make art objects, costumes and props, and explore their creativity – remotely and through after school courses when this is possible.
With school finances so tight we’re proud that Classlist can help raise funds, linking school communities and local businesses in a really positive way. As one PTA member said, “It’s so nice to have some good news during these crazy times”.
