Friends of Sound School
Sound and District Primary School, like many schools have a Parent, Teacher and Friends Association (PTFA), which is an organisation of parents, carers, staff and friends of the school. Its role is to raise funds for the school to use and encourage closer links between parents, carers, the local community and the school.
All parents or carers are members of the PTFA.
The PTFA is probably best known for its fundraising work, but we also have a useful social function too. Fundraising events provide an opportunity for parents, staff and pupils to get together.
Our activity varies and includes: -
- raising funds to help the school provide extra resources for the pupils
- running social events for parents and children; providing an opportunity for people to meet and get to know each other and have fun
- providing support for school trips and outings and other special events
- organising meetings to inform parents about education and other issues, especially when changes are taking place
