The PTFA – Parents, Teachers & Friends Association – exists primarily to fund raise for the school.In these hard times all the funds we raise are even more important to the school & significantly improve the lives & opportunities for our children whilst they are at the school. Over recent years we have contributed towards the following: transport for school trips, theatre visits, stage lighting, leavers’ presents, cameras, choir t-shirts, cookers, to name but a few. Without our funds many of these things would not be possible & our children would miss out.
Many of our fund-raising events prove to be great fun too & are awaited with great anticipation by young & old! Our main events being our Christmas & Summer Fayres. In recent years our Summer Fayre has featured popular Sheep Racing! Other events organised by the PTFA include: Bingos, Quizzes, Discos, Race Night, Auction of Promises, Talent Show, Easter Bonnet & Pumpkin carving competitions, Bunny Bounces, Bags2School collections, Second-hand uniform & Plant Sales. We hope to organise all of these again during the coming year & hope that many of you will come forward to help. We are also always looking for fresh, new ideas to try out!
The PTFA are also responsible for our school swimming pool. In the past this has involved keeping the pool area safe & tidy, checking & topping-up chemicals on a daily basis & taking bookings so that families can make use of the pool outside of school hours too. Now this also involves serious fund-raising & negotiations to refurbish our pool. During 2011/12 over £10,000 was raised & spent on refurbishing our pool. Now we need a big push to raise the necessary funds for a much-needed new roof!"
