The PTFA is a voluntary group who have significantly contributed to providing support and funds to providing and enriching environment for the pupils attending Fen Ditton Primary School.
Their funds have enabled such things as the following:
♦ External companies to come to our school and provide a variety of experiences to promote the children's learning;
♦ Helped with the costs of our educational visits by making them more affordable for you;
♦ Purchased new resources for our school like cooking equipment, play time toys and software packages that make learning fun;
♦ Creating a stimulating outdoor environment;
In order to continue our support we all need to work together to raise as much money as possible so that as many of the children who are currently at the school can enjoy new equipment. We appreciate that times are hard, financially, for people at the moment but we also feel that this is all the more reason to ensure that our children have access to top quality equipment during the school day.
Fen Ditton is fortunate to have a very positive reputation as a school and this is in part due to the success of the PTFA's fundraising which helps to maintain a high standard of facilities for the school.
With this in mind we would like to put forward the following suggestions of how you can help. When we hold events:
♦ Could you help set up or tidy up after?
♦ Could you help with an activity like face painting or tea making?
♦ Could you spare a few hours, four or so times a year to join the PTFA (free chips included!)?
♦ Do you know anyone (for example someone who runs a local business) who you could ask to provide prizes for our raffles, etc?
Please don't leave this for someone else to do, if we cannot get every parent involved we won't be able to raise enough money to order the new playground equipment.
Do come and talk to us (in person, send a note, etc.) if you would like more information or are ready to volunteer.
Thank you for your past and future support.
