The PTFA of The Bishop – ‘Truly Making A Difference’
Our parents’ association is now well and truly established and has already organised several fundraising activities. In it's first year, the 100 Club prize draw (with monthly cash prizes for an annual subscription of £12) was set up and a fantastic Summer Fayre was held in July 2015, raising over £1600 . The good work continued in 2016 with a Grand Prize Easter Raffle (raising over £700) and refreshments sold during the fantastic production of Little Shop of Horrors, as well as during other events, such as Parent's Evenings, and another Summer Fayre held in July 2016. This year we all enjoyed our first ever "Curry and Quiz" night in January and recently held our first ever "Barn Dance" - which turned out to be another fun evening for all involved. We wish to continue with our fundraising efforts and as further events and activities are organised, we will send out regular communication and updates to parents via our students, the website, twitter and termly newsletters.
Over the summer, we purchased wooden benches and picnic tables for the students to utilize and have spoken to the students to gather feedback on what they would like us to purchase next.
It's still not too late to join the "100 club" draw this year, please send in your details and cheque for £12 made payable to The Bishop of Llandaff High school in an envelope addressed to the PTFA. The next draw will be held later this month.
Our next meeting, which will be the AGM, will be held in the Marion Centre at 6.30pm on Monday January 15th 2018.
We are hoping to organize another Curry and Quiz night on Friday February 2nd 2018. More information will be coming out soon.
If you would like to know more about becoming a member of the PTFA or helping out at any fundraising activities, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
On behalf of the committee, we hope that you will all continue to support “The PTFA” and hopefully have fun at the same time!
