ST. JAMES PTFA
ABOUT US: St. James’ PTFA work hard to raise thousands of pounds for the school each year. Our fundraising provides additional educational tools, sports equipment and fun for all the children in the form of parties, cinema nights, outings, etc... We hold a formal ball every two years and publish the Chipping Campden Directory which is thoroughly recommended, particularly if you are new to the area. There are also annual events such as our ever popular Bonfire Night.
The equipment in both playgrounds at school was funded by the PTFA as well as some of the IT facilities, and we regularly provide books for all age groups. We also support local charities and in the past few years have donated to Winston’s Wish, The County Air Ambulance Service, Campden Home Nursing and The National Autistic Society.
In order for us to make all these events a success, we rely on the help of as many parents as possible. We understand that if your child/children are starting a new school this year it can sometimes be as daunting for new parents as it is for the children. Helping out at events can be such fun and a great way to get to know other parents.
If you would like to become involved with this vital part of our school, please contact one of our Chair, Helen Lamb. You can also email our Secretary, Katy McMinn, to be included in the mailing list for information about future events and meetings.
You can become involved as much or as little as you can fit in, even if it is just to fold raffle tickets! Every bit helps us to make our events a success.
