Hatherleigh Community Primary School PTFA
Who are we?
Hatherleigh Community Primary School PTFA is a registered charity run by a group of parents, teachers, carers and anyone with an association to the school who share the common interest of a desire to enrich, enhance and improve the learning experiences of every child in the school and to make special memories by adding in those little extras along the way!
Within our school PTFA we have a chairperson, a treasurer, elected committee members and a group of helpers. We value the broad range of skills that our members and helpers bring to our cause, cake bakers, face painters, IT skills, organisational skills, every contribution of time and support is valuable.
The PTFA helps to provide closer links between homes and the school, and brings parents, staff, and friends together in support of the children, all working towards a common goal.
Our current Committee Officers are:
Chair – Jemima Powlesland
Vice Chair – Steph Letheren
Secretary - Kelly Friggens
Treasurer – Natalie Wonnacott
What do we do?
Our main function as a PTFA is to help raise as much money as we can for the school and children, whilst also offering events and activities which strengthen the school experience for the children. Like most PTFAs, the majority of the funds are raised through the fun events that we organise and run through the year including:
There are also several other fundraising streams that are managed by the PTFA including:
We are always on the lookout for new fundraising ideas and meet up once a half term to discuss all things PTFA. Please get in touch with the school or a member of the Committee if you would like to get involved, in whatever capacity.
Check out our Facebook page which we use to keep parents/carers up to date with meeting dates, upcoming events and general useful school related reminders - Hatherleigh PTFA
We also promote PTFA fundraising events in school newsletters and through ‘Parentmail’ emails so ensure the school has your up to date contact details to be kept in the loop!
Our School Lottery
Our School Lottery has been set up specifically to raise money and make a difference for our children! It’s a fantastic way to bring parents, carers, teachers and the wider community together, in partnership with our school, and at the same time give something back. We hope to raise funds that can support and enrich the education of our children – we aim to provide extra resources for the children, improve the school environment as well as run extra-curricular activities such as music, art and sport. Your support is greatly appreciated and we wish you good luck!
