WHAT IS THE PTFA ALL ABOUT?

• Support School Activities e.g. refreshments at Christmas Parties, Sports Days, Parents’ meetings, Concerts

• Social Programme for Children and Parents, a variety of events to suit different tastes, spread across the year, helping new parents to feel part of Westerton

• Fund Raising, to enhance the provision at the School, to support specific projects, to provide the ‘extras’ in times of plenty and essentials in times of famine!

WHAT DOES A GOOD PTFA DO?

• It helps lots of people to feel involved and to take part in PTFA work at different levels

• It independently plans and runs successful events and projects,

• It consults and liaises with School Staff to ensure that things run smoothly and that people are not over-burdened

• It publicises and markets events effectively

• It builds up productive links with the community and with local business

• It plays a part in the local community

• Members have lots of fun, a sense of teamwork and achievement

HOW CAN YOU PLAY YOUR PART?

• Support School and PTFA events by coming along

• Let us have suggestions for future events you think would work well

• Undertake to run a ‘one-off’ event

• Put your name down as a helper for occasional events e.g. the Gala

• Talk to one of our committee and perhaps come along to a meeting to find out more

• Take the plunge and join the committee now; we need lots of fresh blood but unlike Dracula we don’t bite!

Remember – this is your school and you can make a difference.  Please support your child and the School by becoming involved.
