selection boxes

To be annoyed that school gave each child a selection box at Christmas, funded by the PTA. No-one else seems bothered. Undermining healthy eating attempts and not the best use of money raised. Or am I just being a killjoy.

Sooo bloody sick of PTA bashing on here. Our PTA is run by afew hard working mums who have over the years raised thousands of pounds and bought lots of 'worthy' things for the school. I know not all PTAs are perfect and can be cliquey etc but please don't complain.
Unless you are willing to join the PTA then please don't email the chair about a selection box.

It might just be worth checking that they used PTA funds to buy them.

DC brought home Christmas gifts 'from the PTA' twice - once because they had bought too many selection boxes to sell at the Christmas Fair, and once when a load of chocolate bars were donated by a local shop (think owned by a PTA member). If you receive copies of the minutes, there will have been a discussion at some point, or have a chat with a member.

Worth checking before complaining, just to be sure.

Get a grip. It's only a few bars of chocolate.
