Burnham Infants School PTFA (Parents,Teachers and Friends Association)
Who are we and what do we do?
Chairperson: Amber Probert
Secretary: Kate Cole
Treasurer: Melissa Lane (until Christmas)
Committee members: S Salter
We are a group of likeminded parents ,friends and teachers who raise funds for the school by organising social and fundraising events throughout the year.
The funds help the school to provide additional facilities and resources for the children. We all joined for the same reasons - we wanted to be involved with our children's school and offer help wherever we can, we don't all attend every meeting or help at every event and there isn't any pressure to do so, we are a team and many other parents come forward to support us when it counts.
What does the money raised get spent on?
Recently, money raised by the PTFA's activities have been spent on:
Funds raised at this year's Summer Fayre went towards improving the school's library area as well as paying for the Story Box Theatre, who gave a performance after Christmas.
If you have any ideas, suggestions, or want to help out at the odd event but can't spare the time to come to meetings then please do contact us by e-mail, firstname.lastname@example.org or via the school office. We'd love to hear from you!
Please feel free to come to any of our future PTFA meetings, which are held once every 2 months. Meeting notices go up in classroom windows.
