Inspiring Faith, Love and Learning
Welcome to St Thomas’ PFTA page. The PFTA is open to parents, friends, teachers and all those with links to the school. Our main aim it to raise funds which will go towards enhancing our children’s school experience. In recent years we have helped the school to buy lots of new books for the library – with a commitment to buying new books each month! We have started developing the outdoor area with planters around the reading area with plans to further enhance this into a nature area and growing their own vegetables. A lot of the ideas have come from the children as to what they really want and to everyone’s surprise at the top of their wish list is an outdoor gym which would go well with the all-weather daily mile track that we are aiming for too. This should help the school in becoming a much healthier and happier school and gaining awards along the way – fingers crossed!
