The St Mary's PTFA Parent, Teachers and Friends Association 2021-22

There is a very well established, active and effective Parent, Teacher and Friends Association (PTFA) at St Mary’s.

Membership is open to all parents, legal guardians or carers of children attending school, and to the staff in school. The PTFA provides a wide range of valuable support to school, we not only providing much needed funds that the school can use in a number of extra curricular areas, but it also helps foster the strong sense of community that helps make St Mary’s a really special school. 

The Annual General Meeting is held at the beginning of each academic year and the committee is elected annually at this meeting. Ordinary committee meetings are held at least once a term, and these are open to all parents and staff. New parents are especially welcome. To find out more please visit the PTFA section of the website, email samkin.berry@gmail.com or join our Facebook group - St Mary’s Greenfield PTFA.  We are now also on Instagram!

PTFA Recent Events Spring Term 2022

A big thank you to our wonderful PTFA for putting on wonderful events to raise money for the school.  

 

The Dinner Dance raised an amazing £1136.27.

The Mother’s Day sale raised £718.20.

The pancake toss raised a whopping £1077.00

The Chocolate Bingo raised £480.00. 

 

A big thank you to all the members of our PTFA who work tirelessly throughout the year putting on fantastic school and community events to raise vital funds for our school.  Every penny that is raised enables each child at school to have a fully enriched education.  Funds are spent on trips, workshops, books, and equipment for the children to use which, without all the fundraising, school would be unable to purchase.

St Mary's Go Fund Me 

We have set up a Go Fund Me page for anyone who wants to donate to school funds in lieu of social activities.  Even a small donation could help reach the fundraising target. And if you can't make a donation, it would be great if you could share the fundraiser to help spread the word.
Please click on the picture link and have a look!
