We are fortunate at our school to have a PTA that is an integral part of the school community. In its time Fitz Friends has raised thousands of pounds, which has been spent on equipment and resources to enhance our children’s education experience and the school’s facilities. Just some of the things that Fitz Friends have purchased solely or contributed to in recent years include the refurbishment of the school library, ICT equipment, subsidising class trips and workshops and buying new playground and sports equipment
Fitz Friends is however about much more than simply fundraising. Our PTA exists to provide closer links between home and school and it is an excellent way to bring staff, parents, carers and friends together socially in support of the school, working towards a common goal. It is fun too - just ask any of the Committee members or PTA helpers! Obviously, as in any organisation, we have experienced some challenges but with the continued support of parents, carers and staff, our PTA has always succeeded in its efforts.
All parents and members of the school community are encouraged to get involved, even if they only have a small amount of time available.
All families are automatically members of Fitz Friends PTA when their child joins our school.
