Hello and welcome to Christchurch PTFA
We are a school community group of parents, teachers, staff and friends of Christchurch Academy. You are welcome to attend our meetings or offer any ideas to support the group. You will always receive a warm welcome.
The aim of the PTFA is to give parents a voice in the education of our children. It is about organising fun events that the children will enjoy and remember. We have been involved in organising school disco’s, a Christmas Raffle, School Rocks and Summer Fete. The funds that are raised are extremely important to the school as we strive to create an environment where all children can reach their full potential.
