What is the PTFA?

Firstly, PTFA stands for Parents, Teachers and Friends Association. But, put simply, the PTFA at Christ Church school is currently a very small group of Parents! (We have over 400 children at the school.)
Some people have pre-conceived ideas about the kind of people who make up the PTFA, but our group are just normal, friendly and welcoming parents. We always welcome (and need!) more help, no matter how small. Indeed, the more people we have in the group, the more fun stuff we can do for the children. All the money we make gets put back in to the school, to benefit the children - so it's all for them! The money we raise goes towards buying equipment, books and games, and also helps to pay for educational visitors to come into the school. The more money we raise, the more we can keep the cost down for us, the parents.


The website is a new initiative for the PTFA and we hope you will find it helpful, informative and useful, maybe even an inspiration to come on board. Remember that you can do as much, or as little, as you want - there is no pressure to take on massive jobs or make big time commitments, and there's a task to suit everybody. The more people in the PTFA group, the easier it will be for each of us - and the more fun stuff we can arrange for the children. What's more, it's really rewarding to watch the children reap enjoyment from your efforts. Also, the children enjoy helping out with things like poster making, organising certain parts of events AND they also like the idea that Mummy/Daddy/Nanny or whoever, is taking an interest in their school life and getting involved with the fun side of things! We are always looking for new members from any part of the family, ie parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, I'm sure you get the idea...
Please feel free to ask at the school office when our next meeting is and pop along. Phew, enough of the promotion... we just hope that you will be tempted to join in the fun - and we promise to give you a warm welcome.

With warm regards

PTFA of Christ Church
