Friends of Pilling St John’s C of E Primary School (PTFA)
Parents, Teachers & Friends.
Welcome back to St. John’s! I hope your children returned relaxed, eager and have settled back well. To all our new starters – welcome to our friendly school, where I’m sure you’ll make many happy memories!
I’d like to introduce you to our Association, of which you are ALL automatically members. I am the new Chairperson, Cath Wilson, being new to this role after 3years as Treasurer. Our 4 committee members are Michelle Doyle, Emma Critchley, Alison Walmsley & Micaela Parker. There are also a core group of parents who provide much assistance. We all volunteer our time to provide our school with funds for ‘extras’ such as subsidised trips, equipment (eg, laptops), and fun activities such as Drama Days. We do this by hosting events such as Christmas/ Summer Fairs, Bingo & Discos. We, also, raise funds through a lottery. Please look up www.yourschoollottery.co.uk and search for Pilling.
We always need volunteers & supporters. We’re a friendly bunch, and you won’t be pushed into doing more than you want to! Please come along to our informal meeting & AGM on Monday 1stOctober after the church service, in the school hall. Our first event this year, on 11thOctober, will be an 80’s themed children’s Disco, hosted by a local DJ. Fancy dress encouraged (but please don’t feel obliged to over-spend)! More details to be announced.
Thank you for reading,
