I am the chair of St. Mary's PTFA. I have an interest in providing exciting events and social opportunities for the families and children of our school. My daughter is in year 5, so I have an idea of the type of events which are of interest to her and her friends.
In the PTFA we like to organise social opportunities throughout the school year and it is through these events that we are able to raise funds for equipment that will benefit our children on a daily basis. We have previously helped to fund the gardening club by providing a bench and planters & more recently we have purchased a CD recorder & microphone for the music department.
There are currently only a few members of our PTFA and we would really like to invite as many new participants as we can to help support our thriving school with their fresh ideas and enthusiasm. We are always looking of ways to raise money for the school and we happily welcome any suggestions.
The first meeting of 2017 will take place on Tuesday 17th January in school at 3.30, we then meet once a month. You are welcome to bring your children along to the meetings.
If you’re not able to attend meetings but would still like to help with events such as our Summer Fayre, Sports Days or even making tea & coffee, then we would welcome your support and ask that you speak to the office staff.
If you are interested, we would very much like to see you at our next meeting, so please come and join us.
We look forward to meeting you in 2017
