Parents, Teachers & Friends Association
Our mission is to organise a variety of events throughout the year for parents, their children and sometimes for the whole family. Raising funds is one of our aims, but encouraging parents to come along and enjoy the events, meeting up with friends old and new, is our top priority. We also run non-event fundraisers such as recycled clothes collections and Christmas cards.
We would appreciate any help we can get and if anyone can help out with events and / or has useful skills / things we could use at events, we would be delighted to hear from you!
Committee members meet approximately three times per term to plan events and discuss how funds raised should be spent. In the past we have organised events including the Christmas Fair, the Summer Ball, Ladies’ evenings and discos for the children. We also provide an annual Easter Egg hunt, educational workshops from Lego, visits from the Owl Man and pimms and prosecco tent at Sports Day.
We have raised funds for a wooden play area in the Walled Garden, new playground markings for the Pre-Prep department, spectator benches, hockey goals, netball post protectors, a PA/tannoy system, trestle tables for the gym and stage lighting. As a school we have recently donated money to Charities including Operation Orphan, MacMillan Cancer Trust and the Royal British Legion.
