My name is Chris Connelly and after a break of one year, I have just been re-elected as Chair of the PFTA.
The PFTA held our Annual General Meeting on the 8th March 2018, one of the tasks at the AGM is the appointment of the Committee for the coming 12 months. Some people chose to stand again for this period whist other chose to stand down.
As a result I would like to firstly thank those members who have chosen to stand down for their considerable contribution to the success of the PTFA in the past year. I would specifically like to thank Donna Ahearn, who has undertaken the role of Chair for the past year.
We had an unprecedented attendance at the AGM this year, I would like to thank all of those who came along and offered their time and support and look forward to working with everyone new and existing, going forward.
Some of you may already know me, however by way of introducing myself, I am a father of 2 children who attend the school and live in the village, Nica, Year 6 and Deedee, Year 4. I worked alongside the PFTA on a couple of events in 2015 and was previously Chair for 2016/17.
Following the AGM, the post holders of the PFTA Committee are as follows:
Chair - Chris Connelly (Nica, Year 6 and Dee Dee, Year 4)
Vice Chair - Chris Allen (Nica, Year 6 and Dee Dee, Year 4)
Secretary - Jane Toulson (Admin Assistant)
Treasurer - Ellie Brown (Izzy, Year 1 and Ben, Year 3)
Social Secretary - Clare Waggitt (Edward, Year 4)
We will shortly be issuing a newsletter of planned events for the coming year, which will include some old favourites as well as some exciting new events. I hope you will join us in raising essential additional funds for the school.
We are always looking for new members, if anyone else would like to join our new team or donate some time to one of our events, in 2018, several of us are usually on the playground for drop off or pick up most days, if you’d like to become involved please feel free to introduce yourself to one of us.
The Committee would really appreciate everyone’s input with new ideas, even if you cannot commit time to help, so please feel free to contact us.
