Welcome to the Friends of Sacred Heart and Little Hearts!
Every parent/carer of a child at Sacred Heart and Little Hearts is automatically a member of Sacred Heart’s Parent Teacher Association (PTA), which we call the Friends.
In addition to mums and dads we also welcome grandparents, siblings, parishioners, other family members and even family friends!
The Friends’ aim is to help the school and our children, primarily by providing additional resources outside the normal school budget. We do this by organising various social events where the wider school community can come together, get to know each other, have a good time – and hopefully make money for our appeals.
Examples of what the ‘Friends’ have provided recently include buses for school trips, a selection box for every child at Christmas, part funding for laptops, prizes for ‘Gold Book’ assemblies, awards, Mathletics provision, after school discos, Christmas party food and movie nights.
The ‘Friends’ usually meet once a term to discuss ideas, funding, and future events. Everyone is welcome to join; we are a very friendly, informal group with a common aim and appreciate any assistance for whatever precious time or resources members can give, no matter how great or small. Members help by, for example, serving refreshments at school events, preparing for discos, selling raffle tickets, donating cakes and prizes, purchasing calendars, and generally organising ideas for fund-raising which benefits the whole school and pre-school community.
Like all PTAs, we rely on parents’ support and are very grateful to the many people who give up their time to help run these events.
The ‘Friends’ have existed for a number of years and constantly need new members to continue this into the future. All our children are special and connected to a fantastic school and pre-school so let’s keep this commitment going.
Any help, no matter how small, is gratefully received and it’s a great way to have a real influence on helping the school. We are always on the lookout for new fund-raising ideas and invariably in need of people to help organise and run events.
Watch out for our events advertised on posters or leaflets in the book bags and around the school, then join in and have fun!
If there is anything you would like to see on this page please let us know – we are very open to new ideas.
Please contact us via e.mail ([email protected]), Facebook or via the school office. Thank you in advance for any help you can provide.
