Description

PTFA stands for Parents, Teachers & Friends Assocation of Greenfield Primary School and is a combination of parents, teachers and friends who meet maybe once or twice a half term, either at the school or in one of the local pubs. Our main objectives are to raise essential funds for the school by organising fun events for the children and their families. In the last few years the PTFA has managed to raise thousands of pounds which has been spent on equipment and resources to improve our children's education and facilities like these: Willow structures; Treehouse; iPads for the classrooms. We have raised this money by holding school discos, Christmas and Summer fayres, fashion shows and various other activities. We plan to hold events throughout the year to continue our fundraising and to help to support the school in whatever way we can.

General Info

Our current committee members are: Ellen Matthews (Chairperson) Sarah Moore (Vice-Chairperson) Victoria Heptonstall (Secretary) Karen Linnett (Treasurer)

Winners for the games and competitions from the Summer Fair will be posted on Parentmail but here are the answers 😊 Guess the amount of sweets in the jar was 468 and someone guessed 467, 1 sweet off! Guess the amount of balls in the blow up car - there we're 598 and the closest guess was 450. The closest guess wins the blow up car and ALL of the balls! Guess the amount of balloons in the car - there were 157 and there was an exact guess! Well done to that person! Guess the name of the Bear - his name was Cinnamon The tortoise weighed 2.2kg and there was an exact guess! The two winners of the Lego competition will be told by Mrs Watkins. Well done to everyone who entered, great creations!! And lastly, the Roald Dahl Treasure Hunt - one winner was chosen from all of the correct entries. So many of you entered and had a lot of fun finding the book covers around the school. Thankyou!

Many many thanks to our army of volunteers to turned out to help run the summer gala today. It was lovely to see so many children (and their grown ups too) enjoying themselves this afternoon. Thank you also to everyone who came along and helped us raise much needed money for new outdoor play equipment. All the profits raised are used in the school to benefit all the children. The gala is the last event this term however There are 2 more fantastic Friday's to go - we have some urgent ice cream and lolly shopping to do this week to replenish the freezer! See you on Friday...
