The Friends of Trinity is the name by which our school’s PTA is known. We exist primarily to plan an annual series of events which brings the school and local community together showing the children that they are part of an establishment to be proud of.
Events vary from year to year and have included: Children’s Discos, Quiz nights, Pamper Evenings, and Book Fairs to name but a few. Each year we have two main fundraising events which are the Christmas Bazaar and Summer Fete – these include the whole school and are great family fun.
A beneficial side effect of such events is that any surplus funds are donated by the Friends of Trinity to the school in ways such as benefit the children directly, socially, culturally and educationally. Historically, the Friends of Trinity has funded annual whole school excursions to Christmas pantomime, London Theatre Trips, Playground Markings and additional literacy and art materials in support of those provided by the school; amongst many other things.
The Friends of Trinity also fundraises for charitable purposes and local and national charities benefit each year from our activities.
As a registered charity responsible to a board of trustees, the Friends of Trinity has an elected committee, who with the help and support of dedicated parents within the school, organise the events. The current elected body is:
- Chairperson: Charlotte Goodyear
- Secretary: Cathy Mackay
- Treasurer: Tanya Jeffrey
All parents automatically become members when their children join the school. However, if you would like to take a more active role either at an event or with the behind the scenes planning, please make yourself known to one of the elected committee either by contacting us on our community Facebook Page Friends of Trinity-PTS, emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org or by leaving your contact details with the school’s front office.
We are always very grateful for any help offered and suggestions for future events are much appreciated, because together we can achieve more.
