Friends of St George's PTA.
Registered charity number 1157728
We welcome parents with our open door policy. We want ALL parents to feel that St George's is very much 'their' school. We want ALL parents to feel welcome and to be as involved in school life as fully as possible.
Instead of the traditional Parent Teacher Association, our "Friends of St George's" is a charity group set up to help organise extra curricular activities and fundraising events in order to further the aims and objectives of the school.
The group is run entirely by parents who meet every 8 weeks to discuss and plan events, as well as to publicise the work that the school is doing and to raise funds for our minibus appeal. We have a full committee, including secretary, treasurer, chairperson and the ever important social secretary. Parents are always welcome to join the group and lend their skills, knowledge or experience.
Within the first year of the group being formed we have already bought a minibus and provide that for the school to use for outings.
Latest project news.
It was decided that having secured the minibus, the next project to be undertaken was the renovation of our Coach House.
Having discussed the options, we were delighted when the husband of one of our PTA members offered to take charge of the works and also commit to investing his own time to ensure the project was completed to the highest standards. With extensive experience in the building trade the group very quickly welcomed this generous offer and the works commenced. The husband and wife team have worked tirelessly to keep the project on time and on budget, often working late into the night to secure goods and services, for which we are extremely grateful. We are also extremely grateful for the support of local businesses in their provision of materials and donations to see the project through.
We anticipate the project will be completed by Christmas and we look forward to producing a roll of honour to recognise the generosity of all those involved as well as ensuring plenty of local press coverage to celebrate!!
