Parent, Teachers & Friends Association

What is the PTFA?

Hill View Primary School Parent, Teachers and Friends Association (PTFA) are a group of people who help to organise events for the school and wider community, both fund raising and social.

What are the aims of Hill View PTFA?

They aim to raise funds to buy things that will benefit the children at Hill View, which the school could not otherwise afford. They also organise social events for children, parents and friends, as well as fostering community relationships.

Who can belong to the PTFA?

Anyone who has children at the school, or who works at the school is automatically a member of the PTFA. Meetings are open to all members, and you will be made most welcome should you choose to attend.

How can we find out more?

Every September the Annual General Meeting takes place. All parents and staff are invited, and it is a great way to meet people for the first time and hear about the PTFA’s achievements and plans for the future.

Committee meetings are held roughly every 5 or 6 weeks during term time, and take place weekday evenings. You don’t need to be a member to help out – come along to a meeting to find out more.

Newcomers will be made most welcome.

Planning & Organisation

In the informal atmosphere, the committee openly discuss activities and generate new ideas.  It is at these committee meetings that school projects are considered with a view to PTFA Funding.  In joining the committee, this is your opportunity to have your say.  Committee meetings generally start at 7.30 pm and last for just over 1 hour.  They are usually held in one of the classrooms every 5 or 6 weeks through school terms.

Be part of the PTFA team at Hill View Primary School

Being a member of the PTFA will give you lots of pleasure and enhance your family’s relationship with the school.  Mums and Dads, Staff and friends all combine as individuals to form a friendly school community and as Year 6 parents leave the school, so new Reception parents join.  Everyone is made welcome at any stage through their involvement with the school and it is never too late to get involved.  We are always on the lookout for new members with new and fresh ideas or helpers to run a stall at a fete for half an hour. Whatever you can put in – it will be appreciated.

How to contact your PTFA

The easiest way to contact us is to leave a message with the school Office and a PTFA member will contact you.

 

Putting the fun into fundraising

Fund Raising Events

Over the years the generosity of all those associated with Hill View School has enabled the PTFA to donate many thousands of pounds to worthy projects.  People have been very creative in coming up with new ideas to run alongside the tried and trusted events.  We have a friendly relaxed approach to our meetings and welcome anyone to come along to see for themselves.

 

Fun & Social Events

It is not all about raising funds all the time.  The social events are equally important and give the children and adults the opportunity to enjoy many friendships at Hill View.  The school Disco, for instance, is very popular for all the children and the yearly Duck Race is a great day out for everyone.

Hill View Primary School PTFA has a remarkable record when it comes to fund raising.

This success is firmly based on the team spirit which is much in evidence at all the events, whether it is for fund raising or, just as importantly, a social event where everyone can let their hair down! Many families have struck long-lasting friendships through PTFA activities.
