Brief outline of who are the PFSA and what we do?
Organisations such as these are usually known as Parent Teacher Associations (PTAs). However, in 2010 when Nant Celyn was considering setting up an Association it was decided to adopt a broader title that reflected the involvement of the local community and the whole school staff, not just the teachers. So a Parents, Friends and Staff Association (PFSA) was established.
We are fortunate at our school to have a PFSA that is and has been an integral part of the school community for a number of years. In its time the PFSA has raised thousands of pounds, which has been spent on equipment and resources to enhance our children’s education experience and the school’s facilities.
Our PFSA is about much more than simply fundraising. The PFSA exists to provide closer links between home and school and it is an excellent way to bring staff, parents and friends together socially in support of the school, working towards a common goal. It is fun too - just ask any of the Committee officers or members of staff. Obviously, as in any organisation, we have experienced some challenges but with the continued support of parents and staff, our PFSA has nearly always succeeded in its efforts.
