The purpose of the PTFA, as set out in our constitution is “to advance the education of the pupils of the school through developing an effective relationship between the staff, parents & others associated with the school, engaging in activities or providing facilities or equipment which support the school & advance the education of the pupils.” In short we are here to help fundraise & facilitate fun for the kids.
