PTFA

Hello and welcome to the PTFA

My name is Suzanne Boylan and I am the Chair of The Willows PTFA and I am the mum of Gerard in Year 4.

The PTFA is made up of a group of parents of children in the school, ably supported by other family members (we have a lot of help from grandparents at several of our events), who have always worked closely with the fantastic staff at The Willows to organise events that bring people together in a social setting and also to raise money that the school can use to benefit all of the children.

Some of the events we regularly put on include Easter Bingo, Woodland Evening, Summer Fayre, Race Night and Disco for the children. These occasions are a great opportunity for the families to meet each other and hopefully have fun as well as to make some money.

The PTFA meets a couple of times a term and the meetings are very relaxed and informal. There is no obligation to attend all meetings or events, but everybody’s input is greatly valued and ideas are always gratefully received.

Following the unsettled 20 months or so that we’ve all experienced, we’ve been unable to do as much as we would normally do.

Please read on to see what we’ve been up to in the past and what we’ve started to do more recently…
