PTFA AGM 17(1)

We'd like to introduce you to the Parent, Teacher and Friends’ Association (PTFA)

We run events to raise money for the school to buy equipment and resources for your children. They also provide opportunities for children and adults alike to get to know each other and have fun.

As well as organising big projects such as the summer fete and school disco, we run social events like family film nights & quiz nights. We also hold raffles, cake sales and coffee mornings.

We try to keep a balance between those events which are aimed primarily at raising funds for the school and those which are purely for entertainment.

Look out for the PTFA news in school newsletters, updating parents on our progress and forthcoming events. Over the years, we are proud to say we have raised thousands of pounds for our school.

This has:

  • bought a fantastic range of computer equipment for the IT suite
  • helpedrefurbish the library and stock with interesting books for our children to read
  • provided educational and enrichment visits for pupils
  • fully refurbished our school nature garden so children can play and learn safely in the area

Our next project is to help the school fund performance lighting for the newly refurbished hall.

We’d love to get as many people involved in the PTFA as we can. The more volunteers who help out, the more funds we can raise for our school. It’s also great to get fresh ideas from new faces.

You don’t have to be a committee member to get involved. Some people just help out at the odd event, whilst others get involved in every project, as well as perhaps becoming committee members.

No previous experience is necessary and you can spend as much or as little time as you wish and, although it’s voluntary, job satisfaction is guaranteed by 200+ happy and grateful little faces! It’s also a great way of meeting other parents, making friends and getting to know how the school runs.

If you are interested in getting involved with the committee, we hold monthly meetings (term time only). Or you might want to help us out on an ad hoc basis. Either way, you can talk to one of the committee members, come along to any of our meetings or contact us by emailing stjosephsnewbury.ptfa@gmail.com.
