Welcome to the Sacred Heart High School Parents, Teachers and Friends Association.
It’s my pleasure to welcome you to the PTFA website, where you can find out more about how to engage with other parents, teachers at the school and their friends on a regular basis AND raise important funds for the school.
Please visit this page at least once a term and add our schedule of events to your calendars. We’ll be adding content to this website as the term unfolds including an overview of how the school has used money that the PTFA has raised in recent years for the benefit of all girls at Sacred Heart.
Coming up this term…
Our next event is Auction Night on Friday 11 November. This is a great night for both parents and children and is one of the most successful events we run. We will be sending invitations out soon, but if you would like to help, either by volunteering on the night or by donating lots, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll be delighted to hear from you.
We also run a very popular quiz night for parents and children and a summer fair. We’ll send out emails keeping you in touch with when these are.
We meet once every half term from 7-8pm on a Tuesday evening at the school. Again, we will email you with plenty of notice when we have future dates.
“Your school needs you…”
The PTFA is run by volunteers – there are no paid positions. And of course, all volunteers have active lives outside the school so their time is limited. But as parents of girls who are benefiting from a great experience at Sacred Heart, we are happy to commit time to support raising money for the school. As you all know, we are still living through difficult economic times and the UK Government continues to put severe restrictions on school budgets.
Every single penny of the money we raise at the PTFA goes towards providing resources to the school that otherwise they would not be able to afford. Over the last few years, the PTFA has given over £70,000 to the school. Most recently your donations have helped with decorating of the new Science Block, including inspirational quotes to help our daughters with their motivation!
We would love to hear from you if you would like to become more involved in the PTFA, both to provide funds to support better resources for all the girls and to support a vibrant school community. Anything from joining our committee to responding to a plea for an hour’s volunteering. Every contribution is welcomed.
We look forward to seeing you at one of our events.
Best wishes from your PTFA Committee
