On the last day of the summer term in 2018 a celebration was held at Perton First school in aid of the Shoes For Africa Charity. A concert of singing and dancing was performed on the school play ground followed by the symbolic stepping out of old shoes into new. The old shoes were gathered up and sent to the Shoes For Africa Appeal to be distributed to children throughout Gambia.
The PTFA are a group of parents, teachers and friends, who work together to plan and run a range of social and fundraising events.
Why join Perton First School PTFA?
The money raised by the PTFA directly benefits the children at Perton First School by providing them with resources, equipment and experiences – things that the school might not otherwise have been able to afford. Last year we raised over £17,000 including a charity donation of £5,000 from Morrisons. With some of this money we were able to replace the old playground equipment in the early years play area with a beautiful wooden exploration frame. But it’s not all about money; there are lots of other advantages to joining the PTFA; you get involved with the school community and learn more about the school; you will be a positive role model for your child; you can use and develop your skills; you will make new friends & have fun.
