Welcome from the PTFA Chair

Hello – I’m Stephanie Wardle the PTFA Chair for this year.

I’m mum to Freddie in Year 2, who although not long into his time at Archibald First School, has already enjoyed lots of PTFA events. Getting involved in the PTFA committee seemed like a great way to support the school and make sure all the kids have access to as many fun events and activities as possible.

Other core committee members are:

Rona Fellows – Treasurer and mum to Alex in Year 2

Katie Thomson – Secretary and mum to Daniel in Year 2

We also have class reps who cover all of the year groups and allow us to hopefully connect with as many of you as possible.

The PTFA is fundamentally here to ensure that as much money as possible is raised for our school. Over the years, children have benefited in a number of ways, from the book bag they receive in Reception to the lovely Year 4 leaving meal; from the new markings and games in the playground to the ice creams consumed on the annual Summer beach trip.

We are committed to continuing the success of the PTFA but as ever we won’t be able to do it alone. We rely so much on the support of everyone involved with the school to help us out and contribute as much as possible. Whether it’s baking (or buying!) a cake for a bake sale, manning a stall at an event, helping us tidy up afterwards, donating prizes or just coming along and supporting an event.

As well as your time and contribution we would love your feedback – on past events, future events you’d love to see, fundraising ideas or thoughts on how you would like to see the money spent. All feedback is appreciated. It is your support that really makes the PTFA work. The committee is here to help enable things to happen but the PTFA is much more then the three of us so we look forward to any support you give, big or small.
