The Parent, Teachers and Family Association (PTFA) is an organisation that works in conjunction with the school to raise funds and awareness. The PTFA endeavours to work towards helping the pupils with their development and experiences during their time at Ellen Tinkham, by assisting them with projects and equipment, but this obviously takes money and resources. Money, which the PTFA have to raise through fundraising ventures and generous donations. Everyone who has an association with the school is welcome to attend our meetings, and help in any way is always gratefully received.
The PTFA has previously assisted in helping towards the cost of school proms, the playground equipment, tent and camping equipment, school plays, outings, musical instruments and the hydropool project, just to name a few.
We are hopeful this year will also be a great fundraising year for Ellen Tinkham! If you would like to find out more about the PTFA and how you could get involved, please contact Reception.
