Friends of Harefield Primary - PTA
A huge thank you to the lovely mums who attended our Friends meeting at the end of the term and also to those who reached out to us but couldn’t make the meeting. We had 7 parents (just mums at the moment but dads are more than welcome also!) come and have a chat about what our intentions are for the Friends group. It felt very positive. I would also like to extend this invitation to grandparents- I’m aware we have some very talented and enthusiastic grandparents who also might like to help.
The aim of the group is to provide a network of support for the school community. This includes a whole host of things: sharing ideas for fundraising events, discussing and making lists about what needs to be done, allocating roles to people to help out at events, volunteering time to help sell raffle tickets for events, volunteering time to help at events and event trips.
I would like to reiterate that we do not expect you to commit all your time. If you think you would like to help in some way, please contact myself (Miss Cooper) or email the friends group. Friendsgroup@hpslive.net The more people we have on our team, the more we can do!
Moving forward, we are looking to create a calendar of events which we will share on the website, to help you know what’s coming.
At present, our fundraising is for new playground equipment but we want this to extend further- raising funds to reduce costs for school trips, pay for visitors, help fund food parcels for families.
Our next event will be the summer fete on Wednesday 28th June! Keep an eye out for more information.
If you work for a business which is looking to support the community in any way (financially or by donating gifts and sponsoring events), please let us know.
Once again, if you can help, please contact myself or visit the office to collect a PTA volunteer pack (to be a Volunteer we require all adults to be DBS checked and provide 2 character references)
