Hopefully you will have heard about us and want to know a little more about what we do. We are the Parents Teachers Friends Association (PTFA) for Bishop Vesey’s Grammar School and the good news is that if your child attends the school – you are already a member.
There are two main areas we focus on, raising money for the school and helping to develop the Vesey’s community. The Vesey’s community is a great way to informally meet other parents either by helping to organise or run a PTFA event like the school quiz or simply by turning up and having a great time enjoying our Comedy evening. We also organise Year 7 and 8 school discos in partnership with Sutton Girls Grammar School, which help bring parents and pupils together so you become part of the Bishop Vesey’s community.
The PTFA is a registered charity No. 1124857 and so can benefit from charitable donations. If you work for a company please contact your Human Resources department and ask if they make donations to charities or take part in the ‘Match Giving’ scheme. This scheme enables employees to either raise money through either a sponsored activity like a sponsored swim or by directly supporting the PTFA by helping out at an event eg. school disco. The funds raised are then matched by the company, usually up to a certain limit, then paid directly to PTFA.
With your help, we would like to grow, so we would really like to meet you. The Association meets once a month and we always welcome volunteers to either join the committee or to help at our many events. Attending meetings isn’t a requirement of PTFA membership – just providing a few hours per term can make a real difference.
Future events are communicated through the school comms system or posted on the website. Further information can we found by clicking the PA logo at www.bvgs.co.uk If you are interested or have any questions feel free to contact us.
