The Fairfield School Parent Teacher Association has two aims:
In recent years, the PTA has raised around £8,000 a year from a wide variety of events that have included Christmas and Summer Fayres, a treasure hunt, Auction of Promises, golf days, wine tasting and dance band evenings and cake sales. The PTA is also pleased to support the school by providing refreshments at numerous events including pre-show drinks at drama productions, coffee at new parents' information evenings and ice-creams at Sports Day.
The money raised in recent years from these events has bought many items, large and small, from the “wish list”, including:
Every parent of the school is automatically a member of the PTA. The committee of up to 10 members is elected by members each September and works closely with additional elected representatives from each class and a member of the school staff, forming a PTA community that supports the community of the school.
“Our son joined Fairfield in Year 2. His teacher discovered he was worried about making mistakes so she taught him that there is a positive side to getting things wrong, that's how we learn and figure things out. It was a huge step forward for our child. From that point to Year 6 he has developed from a shy child into a confident young man.
This school really does take notice of the quiet children.”
