Hello and welcome to St Bernadette’s PTFA page!!
WHAT IS PTFA? – St. Bernadette’s Parents, Teachers and Friends Association are a friendly group of parents and staff who meet regularly with the aim of raising money for extra benefits and experiences for our children.
OUR AIMS – Our aims are to make a distinctive contribution to the life of the school, the environment for our children, and enables us to purchase extra items for the school which are not included in the school budget and which greatly benefit and enhance school life for all our children.
WHO CAN BELONG TO THE PTFA –
Following the October 2020 AGM, the following new committee was elected:
CHAIR: Mrs Lynda Taylor
VICE CHAIR: Mrs Hayley Moody
TREASURER: Mrs Susan Galvin
SECRETARY: Mrs Hannah Reay
But of course, we can’t do this alone!!
If you have any fundraising ideas (socially distanced ideas or events that the children could do in their own bubbles for now!!) please get in touch or feel free to pop them on our Facebook page! PTFA Facebook page
Even better, if you would like to join the committee, then please get in touch with us! This can be done either by Facebook, leaving a message with the School office or simply speaking to one of the committee members at the school!
WHEN DO WE MEET? –Meetings will be held in the School Hall from 6.30pm. Our next meeting is 14th June 2021 – come along!
Being a member of the PTFA will give you lots of pleasure and enhance your family’s relationship with the school. Mums and Dads, Staff and friends all combine as individuals to form a friendly school community and as Year 6 parents leave the school, so new Reception parents join. Everyone is made welcome at any stage through their involvement with the school and it is never too late to get involved. We are always on the lookout for new members with new and fresh ideas or helpers to run an event. Whatever you can put in – it will be appreciated.
We are looking forward to supporting a range of activities including:
- Commemorative Tea Towel – Its finally here! Thank you to all the Children for their amazing works of Art. If you haven’t seen it yet, please take a look! It is being displayed on the Main Entrance door! The tea towel is 100% cotton and of extremely high quality. They are £4.50 each and you can purchase either via cheque or – PayPal
- School Trips – The school are organising trips for each class!! PTFA are on hand to lend a hand and help fund these trips! Keep a look out for more information on Dojo and in the newsletters!
- Summer Fayre – Subject to Covid restrictions being lifted, we are hoping that we will be able to hold a Summer Fayre this year! We are working really hard to plan an amazing Fayre that we can all enjoy. Thank you to everyone for the donations of the bottles for our bottle tombola and thanks in advance for the chocolate and toys on the forthcoming mufti days!
We are all hoping to be able to arrange some more amazing events for the latter part of this year. We all need to keep the faith and say a little prayer that come June 2021, we will be able to resume normal activities! If you have any ideas for events or any ways in which we can raise some money for our Children, please get in touch!
- Keep safe x
