The Parent, Teacher and Friends Association

St Joseph’s Parents, Teachers and Friends Association has been an integral part of the school community for many years.

One of our main functions is to raise funds in order to provide additional resources or “extras” for the school which would not necessarily be covered in the school budget. In its time, the PTFA has raised many thousands of pounds, which have been spent on improving equipment and resources to enhance our children’s education and the facilities in school in general. For example, in the past the PTFA have purchased stage curtains, picnic benches and interactive white boards for the classrooms.

There are also times when the school has a big project underway that we can help with. In 2004 the PTFA donated £25,000 to support the school in its specialist Science College status. In 2008, to mark the school’s 75th anniversary, we had great pleasure in handing over a cheque to Ms Maguire for £75,000. This money has been used to carry out a well needed refurbishment of the sports pavilion.

As in most schools, the majority of our funds are raised through the events that we run. Attending events or offering to help before, during or afterwards is very valuable. Donations such as raffle prizes and items for sale at our fayres are also extremely important and welcome. Please read the PTFA newsletters for up to date information on each event.

Many thanks for your support for the PTFA

The 800 club is a simple, and wonderful way to help fund projects within school – half of all subscriptions received each month are given to the school and the remaining half become the 1st place cash prize. The more members there are, the higher the prize money and the more funding there is for pupils to benefit from. It costs just £2 a month.

To take part just complete the standing order mandate. Part B can then be handed to any PTFA member or sent to the PIP marked C/O Brian Wilson (800 Club coordinator). You will then need to forward Part A to your bank who will set up the standing order.
