PTFA update – A message from the PTFA
Saturday 25th February saw our very first School Lottery prize draw. This is really easy fundraising tool for the PTFA and the good news is that family, friends, parents and teachers can all get involved. There is a weekly draw and tickets are just £1 each. There will be a prize winner in Nutfield every week but every ticket is also entered in the £25,000 jackpot draw. The PTFA get 40% of all our tickets sales so if every family at the school bought just one ticket per week we would raise nearly £2500 just like that. So please go to the website and take a look, share with friends and family and keep your fingers crossed for a prize winning ticket. www.yourschoollottery.co.uk

Again this is another one you can share with family and friends and ask them to support us too.
Chairperson / Co-Chairs Recruitment
The PTFA is once again on the look out for a new Chairperson or two Co-chairs. We have a strong team of class volunteers across all the year groups and Charlotte Saklatvala is the PTFA treasurer, so whoever takes the role will be well supported. We are happy to consider Mums and Dads from the school but also those in the wider community with strong links to the school or a keen interest in supporting our fundraising efforts so please speak to anyone who you think may be interested and willing. If you, or someone you know would like to discuss the role further please get in touch with Charlotte Saklatvala or Miss Woods and we can happily answer any questions.
