Southmead Friends Association (SFA)
Southmead Friends Association, or the SFA, is Southmead Primary School's PTA. We exist to organise fun events for our children, fundraise, fund projects for the school, meet other parents and unite our local school community. We are a small group of parents, so if you would like more information or to help out, we'd love to hear from you!
You can find out more about our planned events on the notice board by the school office, on our Facebook page, Southmead Friends Association, and by speaking to the school office. If you don't fancy joining the SFA committee, how about being a Class Parent for your child's class and spreading SFA news that way!
Some of the events we organised last year include:
School Christmas Cards, decorations and tea towels
Cake sales and ice cream sales
Sports Day refreshments
Year Facebook groups
During 2018-2019 we have spent funds raised on play time equipment and playground installations for the children, plus IT equipment for use in class, radios, netball posts, benches, part of the outdoor classroom, and the school trophy. We are very excited to be partnering with the school on a number of projects in 2019 which will benefit all the children, including a climbing wall, musical equipment and a mobile sound system.
Did you know that you can now help Southmead Friends Association raise funds for FREE just by shopping online? Sign up for free to Give as you Live and every time you shop online via the website a FREE donation will be made to your PTA and it won't cost you anything!
See you on the playground!
Each class now has a parent representative and each year group has its own Southmead Friends Facebook page to help with staying in touch with what’s going on.
