Friends of Swansfield Park (PTA)

Our motto is: To raise money AND have fun!

Who are we? - Every parent/carer is automatically a "Friend" of Swansfield Park, which is the school's Parent/Teacher organisation, and a registered charity. We have a strong Committee of active volunteer helpers which anyone is very welcome to join.

What do we do? - We organise social, family-fun events throughout the year to raise funds to pay for extra treats or essential equipment for the school.

Our regular events include a Christmas Family Party, Disco, Bag2School collections, Spring Fayre.

What have we achieved? -  In recent years the Friends'hard work has paid for the following: 

Adventure Playground and flagstone path
A new shed for nursery garden
Transport for school trips
Money towards Christmas Pantomime
Children's christmas Lunch
Fleece lined all in one waterproof suits for Early Years outdoor play
New playground markings
Calculators for all Year 6 Leavers

How do we do all this? - The new Committee is elected at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) in September, a friendly party with wine and cheese. Everyone is warmly invited to this so do please come along and find out what we do - we really like to encourage new volunteers to join in.

Committee meetings are held up to three times a term and everyone is welcome to come along to these meetings - you don't have to be on the Committee to participate! We are always needing extra helpers at our events so please do not hesitate to get involved!

Contact us via the Friends pigeonhole (located on shelf outside the school office) and watch the class noticeboards.
