Welcome to St John’s PTFA page!
Firstly I would like to say that we are always on the hunt for volunteers! Committing to a PTFA may feel a bit daunting however there are a variety of small ways you can help and be involved. From designing posters, photocopying and distributing letters. Cleaning up after an event or manning a stall are all invaluable ways that you could help our school.
You don’t have to attend PTFA meetings- you can use our contact details to send in ideas for discussion. The commitment you make is completely determined by you. The important thing to remember is that schools are becoming more and more dependent on their PTA’s for funds and it is vital that we try and get a continual cycle of parental involvement.
Below are several reasons to get involved:
What does PTFA stand for?
PTFA stands for Parents, Teachers and Friends Association
What runs the PTFA?
The PTFA is made up of a mixture of parents and staff that work together for the benefit of St John the Baptist Primary. Some of them are full time parents, some of them work part or full time. None of us are specialists in fundraising.
Going forward we need as many helpers as possible to make the PTFA a success. Without the involvement of parents the PTFA would not be possible
What does the PTFA do?
When are the meetings?
Meeting are usually held in the Woodland Hut on a Monday or Tuesday morning once a month. Anyone is more than welcome to attend our meetings, please speak to one of us to get more details.
