Christmas Fair 2022
A BIG thank-you to all parents, teachers, family and friends who supported our Christmas fair last Friday. We were delighted to raise a fantastic £961.54 which will go towards new equipment and educational experiences for pupils. Thank-you also to our wonderful committee for their help with planning. preparation and running of so many creative stalls and also to the teaching team for helping to organise the event and for their support in arranging the venue.
It was lovely to see such a great turn out after the lovely Christingle service, having decided to hold the event after school this year rather than on a weekend.
We are also grateful for both the raffle ticket prize donations from numerous local businesses as well as ticket purchases from parents/teachers and the local community.
 
If you have any suggestions/ideas/comments please do get in touch as we very much welcome feedback.

A big thank-you to so many of you who supported the school disco, 3rd November, it was a huge success, the children had a great time. Total monies raised was £50.11! 
We look forward to our next event, the Christmas Fayre, any helping hands willing to man a stall would be much appreciated, please get in touch if you can help!
The Cavendish PTFA is run by a team of parents and organises fundraising events throughout the year. Monies raised through PTFA activities go towards school resources and extra-curricular activities year-round which the pupils get huge enjoyment and enrichment from!

The school benefits hugely from your support and every parent or family member of a child in the school is automatically a PTFA  member.
 
Join Us!
We would love for you to join us. It doesn't have to be a full time role, or full time commitment, although we are always looking for new members, we also need extra hands to help out at fundraising events and/or an hour of your time one evening a month or every other month for meetings! That extra pair of hands can make all the difference, even if only for an hour.
Everyone Welcome, we can't wait to meet you!

One very simple way you can support the PTFA is by making purchases through this App which makes a donation to the PTFA every time you make a purchase. 
 
You will find almost anything you could need on the App and if more people make their purchases-both large and small-in this way, the funds for the school could really add up.
