Our latest PTFA newsletter
Our Christmas Bazaar
We’d like to thank all those who came, helped and purchased. We hope you like our photos.
The purpose of the PTFA is to support the management, staff, parents, and most especially our children, throughout the years to come. As this is our first of many happy years together, the PTFA’s aim is to start as it means to go on. To be immensely prominent, productive and supportive in helping develop an educational environment not only for the children with us today, but also for the many others who will join our wonderful school in the future. As the newly appointed PTFA we have no doubt that you will support this ethos.
In order to be successful, we acknowledge that the support and involvement of parents, the leaders and all staff at Saint Jérôme School, as well as the business leaders in our community, will be of utmost importance. All parents are members of the PTFA and we warmly encourage each of you to show your commitment by supporting our events.
The first way to show your support, will be to participate in the many events we will be planning to hold throughout the year. Your contribution might be that of a committee member, volunteer, or merely as an attendee. Whatever level of participation you select, your time and involvement will be highly valued and greatly appreciated.
Most of us are aware of the Saint Jérôme School parents Facebook page, kindly setup by Laura Mitchell, the fruits of which many of us have benefited from, since before the very first day of school. A big THANK YOU to you Laura from us all. The PTFA will liaise with the page’s admin and this will be another useful communication tool but it will never be the exclusive way we will communicate with you all. We will always send out our communications via a PTFA newsletter and via email.
You also can show your support another way, by providing us with your comments regarding our PTFA efforts, or your suggestions and ideas for other fundraising initiatives. To facilitate this, please feel free to contact us in due course, via our email address or speak to any committee member as advised in Mrs Walton’s letter last week.
This coming school year and in the years to come, the PTFA will be busy developing the details for a very productive and exciting time aimed at enhancing the educational environment for all of our children. We can already tell how excited and supportive everyone will be. We thank you in advance.
We believe that it is of the ultimate importance we do everything we can to enhance the learning environment of our children, as they are truly our future. It will take all of us working together to ensure that this happens. The PTFA are embracing the school’s vision to establish a warm, supportive and caring community amongst all our families and we look forward to developing this with you.
Please do get in touch if you have any queries or ideas and we look forward to working with as many of you as possible.
