BWH Parent, Teacher & Friends Association
Formerly the PTA, the PTFA now weclomes a wider membership, not just parents and teachers from the school but also ex-parents, ex-teachers, ex-staff or governors and general well-wishers. The Parent Teacher & Friends Association helps to fund items and services that the school budget cannot stretch to; this might be a new school minibus new seating for the school hall or additional resources in subject areas. Throughout the year the group holds quizzes, barn dances and make your own jewellery evenings and is always looking for fresh ideas and inspiration. We would love to hear from you if you are able to help out.
We meet on the first Wednesday of every month at 6.30pm at the school, but members do not have to attend every meeting. The combined efforts of parents who support the school are very much appreciated. Please do consider giving a bit of your time or just drop us an email with any ideas or suggestions at: email@example.com
Working together, the PTFA makes a huge difference to the school:
- Hosting social opportunities for everyone to enjoy
- Raising funds to provide the school with resources over and above what the school budget can do.
- Supporting school events and helping turn them into the successes they are.
If you are not able to give your time to support the PTFA, there are other ways you can help.
- Shop online via TheGivingMachine It’s really simple, you enter your favourite shops via TheGivingMachine and a percentage of your shopping bill is converted into a cash donation for the school, at no extra cost to you. With over 1,500 stores participating including Amazon, John Lewis and Tesco taking part, you can really help make a difference.
