We are currently in the process of rebuilding our Christ Church PTFA and would love for more members to join. As a PTFA we will communicate events and opportunities via PING and you can also email firstname.lastname@example.org with PTFA as the subject.
What is a PTFA?
A PTFA is a Parent, Teacher & Friends Association, an organisation with a mission to make the school a better place for children to learn. We hope the Christ Church PTFA will bring together parents, teachers and children to raise funds, strengthen the school community and enrich the lives of our pupils. Money raised is usually spent on things that the school budget does not cover.
Why should I join the PTFA?
From making new friends and getting to know the school environment, to helping raise much needed funds and making a difference to the children and school community. All of these things help you grow in confidence as a parent and it feels good to know you are making a difference for your children and for generations to come.
What will be expected of me?
There is no expectation on any parent volunteer, any amount of time you can give to the PTFA will always be well received. There are a variety of ways you can get involved, from engaging with social media activity, attending PTA Meetings through to volunteering at events or coordinating events. Even donating preloved items, raffle prizes or suggesting brilliant ideas are ways of getting involved. There seems to be a myth that if you get involved with your PTFA you will never be able to escape! We make it clear that parents can come to our meetings to just listen and learn, or they can take a more active role if they want to, there are no set expectations.
