Friends of Penygarn

Welcome to the 'Friends of Penygarn'

What is a PTFA?

A PTA is an excellent way to bring together parents, teachers and others to raise money and to support the school.

It provides an opportunity for everyone to work together towards a common goal. All parents and teachers can get involved even if they only have a small amount of time available. The school benefits from the additional funds the PTFA raises and it is an excellent opportunity for parents to be more involved in school life.

What does our PTFA do?

PTFA activity varies from school to school. At Penygarn Community Primary School, the PTFA:

  • raises funds to help the school provide "extras" for the pupils;
  • runs social events for parents and children;
  • provides support for school trips, outings and other special events and 

We always welcome new members to come along and join us.  We meet in the meeting room at 9.15 am on a Monday morning.

We make lots of things that the children can enjoy at our events and would never say no to extra hands to help.

We appreciate that not everyone can commit to this but if you can lend a hand at anytime, please see one of the ladies on the Committee.
