The Parents, Teachers and Friends Association raises funds to enhance the quality of our children’s education and to improve their school life. Funds from the PTFA help to make our lovely primary school a thriving environment and an amazing place for our children to spend their childhood in.
Last year the PTFA provided funds to school towards the new learning resources centre. The previous year funds went towards the new swimming pool changing rooms. This year smaller PTFA funds will enable new playground equipment, library books and cameras to be purchased for the school.
Every parent with a child who attends Stokenham Area Primary School is automatically part of the Parents, Teachers and Friends Association. There is a core committee of parents and teachers. New members are always welcome, but even if you do not wish to become a committee member, we always need helpers at events and would welcome any help offered.
We have a programme of fund-raising events and activities throughout the year. We are always keen to hear new ideas to refresh and enhance our programme. This year we will be raising money through fun events, such as bag packing in November, the Christmas Fair, and a school disco. We will run a BBQ and drinks stall at the summer sports day and we will have lots of stalls at the summer fair. Some exciting grown up evenings are planned over the course of the year – details will follow! The greatest help you can give to the PTFA is to attend and support our events.
Your child benefits from the hard work of the PTFA – please offer your time, no matter how little, it will be much appreciated. Every year we lose key members of the PTFA as children move on to secondary school. We are therefore keen for parents to get involved at an early stage. Stokenham Area Parents, Teachers & Friends Association meet around once per term to organise fundraising events. The meetings are an informal get together and we are always pleased to see new faces.
Feel free to speak with PTFA members at school.
