PARENTS, TEACHERS and FRIENDS ASSOCIATION
Inviting ALL Parents and Carers
We are a group of parents, teachers and friends just like you, who give up some of their time to organise and support school events for our children. Without this support we would not be able to have the Christmas Fair, Discos, Mother's Day stall, Easter Raffle or Summer fetes. As well as providing fun events, we also fund raise to help the School with purchasing various equipment to help enhance the school environment for our children. The PTFA contributed towards the cost of the large octagonal shelter in the playground which provides a quiet area for children to use.
A BIG THANK YOU to everyone for supporting our events.
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
These can be brand new or second hand items (for example; gifts, toys, books, DVDs, bric-à-brac etc) for selling at various events throughout the year or, where suitable, used as raffle prizes. We can take donations at any time, please drop them off at the office, many thanks.
SECOND HAND UNIFORM
We are always grateful to have any school uniform that your child no longer needs and hold regular sales. Please hand clean items to the office at any time and also ask the office staff to pass a message on to us if you require second hand uniform yourself.
Would you like to help but are worried about not having enough time or that you can't commit to something long term?
We need all sorts of help and support including:
One-off help occasionally: for example wrapping gifts or preparing PTFA items for book bags
Support at events: for example looking after a stall for 30 minutes, helping set up or clear away, being a responsible adult at the disco
Commercial contacts, if you have contacts which would help raise additional funds, i.e. Raffle prize donations, discounts on purchases; please let us know.
Ideas, we are always looking for new ways of raising funds.
THANK YOU FROM ST MATTHEW'S PTFA
