King’s PTFA is organised and run by a few lovely parents and teachers. Our aim is to raise funds through various activities which we then donate to the school to enhance our children’s ‘King’s experience’.
Fundraising events and activities are planned and organised at committee meetings which happen approximately once per half term, we then request volunteers from the parents to actually run the events. We also arrange social evenings just for fun! Donations to the school are usually requested by the staff and discussed by the committee at the meetings. We then vote to approve the funding request.
All parents and carers of students at the school are automatically members of the PTFA and are welcome to attend the meetings. As a registered charity we are also obliged to elect officers of the charity, a chairperson, vice chairperson, treasurer and secretary.
As with most local charities we sometimes struggle to attract the help we need to plan the events. However the last year has seen a welcome rise in the participants at the meetings and we hope this will continue. Some of the key members on our committee are:
- Elizabeth Broad (Chair),
- Lisa Gray (Secretary),
- Roz Mullin (Treasurer),
