Welcome To St. Anthony's P.T.F.A Committee!
Hello from your new PTFA Committee for 2017! Committee roles and responsibilities for this year are:
Joint Chairs - Sarah Taylor and Emilie Onyekwe
Secretary - Amanda Swann
Joint Treasurers - Harvey Bal and Jinder Flora
Publicity Officer - Susie Rack
Committee Members - Ronan Mitchell and Amandeep Khahk
We are the newest volunteers to this long-standing charitable organisation made up of parents whose children attend St. Anthony's Catholic Primary School. We will be organising various fund raising events throughout the year, and our main aim is to raise money to provide a great environment for the children to learn in. We are extremely grateful for the generous support we receive from parents and volunteers, and look forward to achieving wonderful things together in 2017!
If you have any ideas or talents that could help us then please let us know!
Our aim this year is to raise funds towards a new playground to sit outside the year 3 classroom. Now that the old wood has been cleared the stage is set for something that looks a bit like this.
Head Mrs McSharry says: “We would really like to collect as much money as possible towards replacing the outdoor play equipment which, we had to have dismantled recently; so please give as generously as possible and if you are a current UK Tax payer please remember to Gift Aid your sponsorship as we will receive an extra 25p on each £1 you donate. As part of the project we will also need to replace the safety surfacing, so the total cost will be approximately £6,000.“
Children from Reception to Year 6 dressed in red to help us raise almost £600 from our first event of the year on Monday 13th. They ate, they danced - and the glow-sticks were a major hit! Thank you for the support of all the parents who were able to spare a couple of hours to help everything run smoothly.
Ben Nevis Climb
One of our Nursery parents, Cesar Silva, braved extreme winds and freezing temperatures to summit Ben Nevis in mid-February. Cesar is a former SAS man and experienced climber who has reached many of the world’s highest peaks, raising money for a variety of charities as he goes. He has dedicated this most recent challenge to raising funds for St Anthony's PTFA and we are hugely grateful to him for this awesome effort! You can find a link to his sponsorship form towards the bottom of this page.
All parents are invited to attend our meetings. Our next get together will be in school on Monday 27th February at 6pm. Please join us if you are able to.
An Easy Way To Raise Funds
Do you shop online? Did you know that every time you buy something you could be raising money for our school?
The site offers charities and other good causes like schools, sports clubs and community groups the opportunity to raise money every time their supporters shop online. On average, each retailer will donate 5% of the cost of your shopping - and those donations soon mount up. CLICK HERE to go to the website and see how you could be supporting us when you shop online.
