The Parents & Friends Association (PFA) is a registered charity responsible for raising money for the school children. All parents automatically become members of the Association when their child/children join the school. All funds which are raised are spent on improving equipment and also resources to enhance the children’s education and the facilities in school.
Last year, for instance, the PFA were able to support the annual trip to the pantomime, various class trips and provide funds for the After School Enrichment Programme, which offers the children a wide variety of clubs, including art and craft skills, eco club and fantastic sporting activities. Funds are raised in a number of ways, but we try to ensure that they are generally events which are fun for both parents and children alike. To name but a few, we have had Quiz Nights, Christmas Fairs, and also our annual ‘Slay the Dragon’ 10km cross country run.
The PFA Committee meets to discuss and plan future events. We are always looking for new and exciting ways to help the school, so would be delighted if any new parents who may have fund raising ideas or just want to help, could join us at our open meetings. These meetings are normally held at Hinton St George First School once every half term on a weekday evening.
The Committee members are always available to answer any queries you may have and we look forward to meeting you. If you have any queries, you can email the PFA
