PTA

Welcome to the Parent, Teachers and Friends Association (PTFA), also known as the ‘Friends of Mill Hill’ section!  
 
The primary purpose of the PTFA is to assist the school to advance the education of the pupils at Mill Hill Primary by:
 
  • Fundraising for the school
  • Helping at events
  • Acting as a link between teachers and parents
  • Arranging social activities for the children and their families
  • Purchasing additional items and equipment for use by the children which is not provided by Statutory funds
 
 
Every year the PTFA organises events for all the family to enjoy. The main fundraising events are usually the Summer and Christmas Fairs, with a few small events happening in between. The PTFA are always looking for new fantastic fundraising ideas, so if you have any suggestion or recommendation, please do let us know.
 
From events in 2014 we were able to raise enough funds to replace the curtains in he main hall with bespoke handmade red curtains which really do change the whole look of the main hall, and is something the children are very proud of. We have also purchased balance bikes for Reception class, playground tubs with equipment such as tennis balls, basket balls, skipping ropes, etc, and a new sports kits for off site events. We were also able to provide year 6 with essential SATs revision materials, which was very important to the children and the PTFA were happy to assist with.

There is often a lot of work involved in organising events and the more parents we can get to help the better. If you would like to be involved, and can help in any way you can, either by attending the meetings with your fundraising ideas or by getting more involved with the event organizing, any help is greatly appreciated. We have an online facility available which lists all of our events in more detail, which can be easily accessed via the link below:

The Friends of Mill Hill have set up a Facebook group where we are able to share ideas and information, which can be found by searching in Facebook under "Friends of Mill Hill". Please feel free to request to join this group where you can also be kept updated as to events and news and can use as a portal for making suggestions.

UPDATES FROM PREVIOUS MILL HILL EVENTS

END OF YEAR DISCO - FRIDAY 11TH JULY
What a great night we had with so many children (and adults!) dancing the night away! Pizza and sweet bags sold out in record time and the refreshments just kept on selling. Thank you to everyone who came along and enjoyed themselves, and thank you to the teachers, Friends and staff who stayed on the day to help before, during and after the event. Whilst our school discos aren't primarily a profit making event, simply an event for the children to have a good time, we are pleased to announce that we did in fact make a profit of £104 today which is a start of fundraising towards new reading books for the children's learning. So thank you once again to all who came and all who were involved. Your support is greatly appreciated.

MILL HILL SIZZLING SUMMER FAIR - SATURDAY 28 JUNE 2014
How fantastic was our summer fair this year?! With fabulous music from A Different Beat again, fun class stalls for all the children to test their skills on, great stallholders and playbus, laser arena and bouncy castle, as well our our fabulous raffle and tombola! Although the rain put a stop to us proceeding with the event outside, the sun eventually shone and drew the crowds through the door! What can we say? These events are for the children of Mill Hill and it was just lovely to see them all enjoying themselves so much, and with the money we raised on the day (over £1,000) we were able to purchase sports kits with the school's logo embroidered on, and hi-viz tabards for when the kids walk to Waterlooville, etc. Thank you to everyone who was involved for making it such a great day again, we look forward to the next one!

MILL HILL FUNTASTICAL CHRISTMAS FAYRE - SATURDAY 14th DECEMBER 2013
The day was a huge success and everyone enjoyed themselves. 
It goes without saying that these events would not be possible without the hard work, commitment and generosity of many people. First of all i would like to thank the teachers, LSA’s and staff who gave up their valuable time to assist and ensure the event was safe and enjoyable. Secondly we would like to extend our gratitude to all who came to the Fayre and spent their hard earned money.
Another big thank you to all the PTA members and friends and family who helped to prepare for the event, help during the event and who helped with the clearing up afterwards. 

We’d also like to give a BIG thank you to A Different Beat for joining us on Saturday and providing some fantastic live music at our School Christmas Fair. It was the icing on the cake to a wonderful day with so many compliments about you guys being passed around. Everyone loved the fact you had music to suite whatever taste and age. Would love to have you join us at future events, and will definitely be recommending you to everyone we know. THANKS!!

We raised a massive profit of just under £950.00, which is AMAZING!!!!

Many thanks again, Jenna (Chair of Mill Hill PTA)



MILL HILL CHRISTMAS SHOPPING EVENING 8th NOVEMBER 

BIG MASSIVE THANK YOU to everyone who made this evening such a success! Thank you to all our stallholders, who have been very patient putting up with my barrage of emails, for providing some fantastic gifts for sale (wish I had more time to shop for my self lol!) and for coming along. Thank you to all the members of the PTA who came along and especially to Tracie for her fantastic help on the evening, and also to my sister Jenna Ford for putting up with me during these last couple of months of organising! BIG THANK YOU to everyone who came and spent all their hard earned cash! Without you guys these events wouldn't be possible, and it goes without saying that we are extremely grateful to you all.
We raised a grand total of £345.25, for the children at Mill Hill Primary School which is just amazing. 
Thank you again, Natasha O'Connor (Secretary of Mill Hill PTA)

On behalf of all the Mill Hill PTA, I would just like to say a BIG, THANK YOU, to everyone who came to our Summer Fayre, to all who helped out in the preparations before the day and to all who volunteered their time to help on the day, without you the day would not have been a huge success, so THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!
