About the PTFA

WHAT IS THE PTFA?

The Parent, Teacher and Friends association (PTFA) is a volunteer organisation, run by parents, to support the achievements of all the children at Silverhill School. The vast majority of what we do is to raise funds to pay for additional resources for the school to enhance the learning experience for our children.

WHAT IS OUR PURPOSE?

Our aim is simple, we support the school to achieve its goals, enhance the experience of the pupils and support the staff at the school to help make learning an adventure and enjoyable journey.

WHO CAN JOIN THE PTFA?

Anyone who has children at the school or works at the school is automatically a member and we welcome friends and other members of the childrens family to come and join us.

HOW TO FIND OUT MORE?

Want to know more or get in touch.  email- silverhillptfa@hotmail.co.uk. Facebook - www.facebook.comPrimarySchoolPTFA. twitter @silverhillprim or just come and find any of us on playground (names and photos on "Members" tab above).

WHEN DO YOU MEET?

We meet on a monthly basis for about one hour. We normally meet at the Honeycomb pub on Ladybank Road and its an informal meeting to discuss events, fundraising activities and agree any requests for funding from the school. Dates for all meetings can be found on the "Events" tab above. Please do come along and find out more.

WHAT EVENTS DO YOU RUN?

We run lots of different events from school disco's, Fayre's, cake stalls and much more. Please see the "Events" tab above for details and dates for all events scheduled in 2017.

WHY DO WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT?

The PTFA can only operate with the support of parents and the local community around the school. We are looking for new members to help us expand our activities. We don't have a typical profile for a volunteer, and believe that everyone has something to offer. So, whatever your skill set, however limited your time is, please get in touch and talk to us about how we can work together to support our school.

WHAT SKILLS DO WE NEED IN 2017?

We need:

  • People who will help run stalls at the School Fayre's (just an hour or two)
  • People who have Face Painting and Mendi skills to offer this at the School Fayre's (just an hour or two). We will provide all materials.
  • Carpenters - we need benches around some trees in the playground. We will provide all materials we just need your expertise.
