Friends of TPS plays a vital role here at school. It enables essential resources to be purchased that might otherwise be financially out of school’s reach.
But it’s not just about the money. It also gives us parents the opportunity to meet, socialise and become more involved in our child's school life.
In recent years our ‘Friends of TPS’ has organised many events including Fairs, Sponsored Events, Discos and Easter Egg Bingo!
We don’t hoard our profits. Every pound we raise is ploughed straight back into school. In the past we have purchased a radio station, interactive whiteboards, the refurbishment of the school hall (including air conditioning, staging, sound system and lighting) and contributed towards the cost of the fabulous deck. Recent purchases include sports kits, musical equipment, furniture, reading books, lockers and book bags for all new starters in Reception.
‘Friends of TPS’ is open to anybody with the school’s best interests at heart. And you don’t have to come to endless meetings or give up countless hours of your time to make a positive difference to your child’s education. Sometimes it’s a case of serving tea and coffee for half an hour or so after a Nativity Play at Christmas, or making a poster to advertise a Quiz. Whatever talent you may be hiding, we’re keen to use it!
None of us claim to be professional fundraisers but as long as there are enough willing volunteers amongst us, we’ll always get the job done and have a good time doing it!
If you’d like to help, we’d love to hear from you. Please contact the school office and leave your details.
