We are the Parents, Teachers & Friends of Joseph Hood Primary School (PFTA). We organise both fundraising events and enjoyable social functions for parents, staff and children. We are very enthusiastic about our efforts and work closely with Mrs Saville and the staff to enrich school life and our children’s education. Everyone with a child at our school is welcome and encouraged to get involved. You are all welcome to attend any meeting and we always want to hear new ideas.
Our events include coffee mornings, cake sales; second-hand uniform sales; children’s discos and after-school entertainment; evening quiz night; a Christmas and summer fair and social evenings out organised by class reps. All these events are organised and run by volunteers and we always welcome new parents getting involved. Our volunteers are mums and dads, full-time and part-time workers & others are at home looking after their children – a really mixed bunch! If you get involved you can decide how much or how little you want to do: maybe you can bake a cake, sell some raffle tickets, design a poster or help plan the Summer Fair. It is up to you.
