What is a PTFA?

A group of people including parents, family members, teachers and friends of the school who help to organise events, both fund raising and social.


What are the aims of our PTFA?

To raise funds to buy things that will benefit the children, that the school could not otherwise afford, to organise social events for children, parents and their friends and to foster community relationships.


Who can belong to the PTFA?

Anyone who has children at the school or who works at the school is automatically a member of the PTFA.


How can we find out more?

Each year in September there is an Annual General Meeting (AGM) to which all parents and staff are invited.  This is a good way of meeting people for the first time and hearing about the PTFA achievements and plans.

Newcomers are always welcome.


Planning and Organisation

In the informal atmosphere, the committee openly discuss activities and generate new ideas.  It is at these committee meetings that school projects are considered with a view to PTFA Funding.  In joining the committee, this is your opportunity to have your say.  


Be part of the PTFA team 

Being a member of the PTFA will give you lots of pleasure and enhance your family’s relationship with the school.  Family members, Staff and friends all combine as individuals to form a friendly school community. Everyone is made welcome at any stage through their involvement with the school and it is never too late to get involved.  We are always on the lookout for new members with new and fresh ideas or helpers. Whatever you can put in – it will be appreciated.


How to contact your PTFA

The easiest way to contact us is to leave a message with the school Office (office and a PTFA member will contact you.


Putting the fun into fundraising

People have been very creative in coming up with new ideas to run alongside the tried and trusted events.  We have a friendly relaxed approach to our meetings and welcome anyone to come along to see for themselves.


Fun and Social Events

It is not all about raising funds all the time.  The social events are equally important and give the children and adults the opportunity to enjoy many friendships at St Nicholas.  The school Disco, for instance, is very popular for all the children and the annual Christmas Fair are enjoyable times for everyone.


Our school PTFA has a remarkable record when it comes to fund raising.

This success is firmly based on the team spirit which is much in evidence at all the events. Many families have struck long-lasting friendships through PTFA activities.


You can be part of this successful team.
