Our PTFA (Parents, Teachers and Friends Association) is open to parents, teachers, carers, family members any members of our local community who would like to support in raising funds for school. We, at Dobwalls Community Primary School are very proud of our PTFA and its fundraising achievements. We strive to raise lots of money for the 'extras' to which the official school budget does not stretch.
Over the years, we have been able to purchase the wooden train and playhouse and a major project was to raise a huge amount of money to buy our fantastic climbing frame and play equipment which is the envy of many other schools.
All the parents of our children are automatically members and are encouraged and entitled to come to meetings and discuss new ways to raise money for all our children. . . and then spending it!
Some further activities organised by the PTFA are listed below:
- Annual Glo Discos
- Money to buy new dictionaries
- Christmas Fayre fun and games
- Harvest Scarecrow competition
- Easter Bingo
- Other activities include Summer Fayre, Raffles etc.
