PTFA

ABOUT US... The Parents, Teachers and Friends Association is open to anyone who is a Parent, Grandparent, Carer or Teacher who would like to contribute to the wider life of the school. We provide volunteers and resources to school events like the Christmas and Summer Fairs, International Day, and Summer Fun Day. Our after school picnics and family film nights have been a great success and enjoyed by all who attended, as were our annual Christmas and Summer Fairs. These events are great fun, with everyone pitching in to help, and they strengthen our school community as well as getting a lot done and raising money for the school in the process. Why not come along to the PTFA meeting to share ideas and find out what you can do to help?
 
MEETINGS... 

Our last Parents, Teachers and Friends meeting was on Friday 4 December 2020 at 10am. It was an unusual meeting, being held outside in Primrose Square (adjacent to the school) where we braved the cold to observe social distancing requirements! However, this allowed us to elect our new Secretary, Shauna McKenzie, and new Treasurer, Stephanie Waldron. Many congratulations to them! They join our Chair, Sabrina Gaspard as the formal office holders of the PTFA. We look forward to more parents and carers getting involved.

A further (socially distanced!) meeting is planned for Wednesday 9 December 2020 at 10am - up to 6 people welcome (to comply within current Tier 2 guidelines). Current COVID19 restrictions mean we cannot meet indoors.

 

NEWS... Last year's Summer and Christmas Fairs raised about £500 collectively, which has gone directly into school funds. Thanks to everyone who donated items or their time to help organize, set up and run stalls (and clear up afterwards!) - we couldn't have done it without you! We also raised over £200 at our Film Night evenings.

EASYFUNDRAISING... Don't forget you can raise money for the school PTFA every time you shop online simply by signing up to easyfundraising.org.uk. Thousands of online shops will donate a commission to St John of Jerusalem PTFA when you shop with them, and it doesn't cost you a penny extra! Please sign up! The more people that do, the more we raise.
