The Friends of The John Frost School are parents, teachers and friends who help with fundraising as part of the school community. The PTFA is a registered charity and part of the PTA UK network.
Over the years we have purchased many items and the group has organised the school prom annually since 2005. We have contributed towards school trips to reduce the cost for parents. We have provided equipment for the technology department and team kits for PE, books for English and Science, dictionaries for Geography, theatre make up and masks for Drama, music sheets for Music and materials for Art. We are also supporting the Welsh Bacc work this year.
In order to carry on supporting the school the PTFA would welcome new members. Please contact us if you feel you can help.
The Year 11 prom in June was organised by the Friends of the School. It was a wonderful evening complete with a red carpet, limousines, a DJ and a photo booth. We work closely with the school prom committee to ensure that year 11 students have the best night of their life. All of the photos of the event can be found on our facebook page.
This term we have also supported the summer showcase, and brilliant performance of Wonderland. Thank you to everyone who bought refreshments or a raffle ticket. This fundraising has meant that we have once again been able to buy books for the school including revision books for business studies and science. We have also been supporting Welsh Bacc attending events and helping out with funding.
Earlier this year on n St David’s Day 2017, the Friends of the John Frost School held our first Quiz Night. It was a fantastic evening with Welsh themed questions, prizes, entertainment and food. Parents, teachers, colleagues from the local primary school, family and friends took part in a great night as part of the school community.
Friends of The John Frost School are a registered charity and every penny raised is spent on children in the school: this term we have sponsored a Welsh Bacc event and purchased revision books for Science. We are currently working on the plans for the end of year prom. Our next fundraising idea is the sale of engraved bricks. Add your message on a brick which will be displayed in the Reception area in the new building and help to fund activities in the school. Be quick, as there is already a waiting list!
Watch this space as Friends of The John Frost School grows from strength to strength as part of the all-important school community.
