PTFA

PARENT TEACHERS FRIENDS ASSOCIATION (PTFA)

All parents with children in school are members of the P.T.F.A.   The aims of the Association are:

  • To encourage close links between home, school and community.
  • To increase awareness of the activities of the school in the wider school community.
  • To organise functions and fund-raising events to encourage active participation of parents and friends in the social life of the school and to encourage local people to visit and to support the school.
  • To raise money to support and extend school activities and enhance resources.

The PTFA organises the regular Christmas & Summer Fairs held at school and participates in local craft fairs and coffee mornings. Sale of raffle tickets provides a big boost to the success of events. The PTFA is often involved in sponsored events and organises social occasions. We also organise a Paper Caper – collecting newspaper, card and all types of paper throughout the local community. This raises significant and much-needed extra funds for school but requires the help and support of committed and enthusiastic parents, staff and friends.

All events require planning and organising and all offers of help are warmly welcomed. We are always looking for new fund-raising ideas. Please become actively involved in the P.T.F.A. All meetings are advertised on the notice board at the front of school.
