Dear Parents, Teachers and Friends,
The PTFA’s AGM will be held on Thursday 6th October 2011 at 7.45pm in Mr. Handy’s classroom (Class 7) in the school.
Last year’s AGM was very poorly attended. Many parents we think may have been scared off by worrying how much time helping the PTFA takes. If you attend the AGM you do not automatically have to join the committee and you will not be pressured into running stalls or collecting sponsorships! – Honest!
It is your right as a parent/carer/friend of a pupil at Holy Trinity School to attend any PTFA meeting but especially the AGM. You won’t be expected to participate if you do not wish to; you can just come along and listen. The chair and the treasurer will present their reports and there will be a review of the past years achievements and activities. There will be the election of committee members. All current members are happy to continue in their roles, but would all be willing to discuss the possibility of someone taking over, so if you feel it’s something you would like to find out more about please come along to the AGM, if you cannot make the meeting you can contact a member or leave a message with the school office.
I’m sure most of you have heard about the new AV system being fitted throughout the school. The PTFA are donating over £5000 towards this. This is just one example of the kind of thing the PTFA works towards. Every penny you give or spend at various events organised by the PTFA, whether it is buying a cake at the Christmas bazaar or an ice lolly after school goes directly towards making school life easier and more enjoyable for all our children. All the items and services provided by the PTFA last year will be discussed at the AGM so come and see what we’ve been doing.
Refreshments will be provided – Please come along.
Sajel Howlett – PTFA Chair
