Parents & Friends Association
Advancing the education of our students through building relationships, engaging in activities and providing facilities
Welcome to the MGGS Parents and Friends Association (PFA).
Most of you will know about the PFA through the various notifications or from past events. However, for the benefit of those parents who are not sure what we do, I would like to provide a short introduction to the PFA, highlighting what we do and more importantly what you can do to offer support to the school and its students.
The aim of the PFA is to advance the education of the pupils in the school through:
The development of more extended relationships between the staff, parents and others associated with the school
Engaging in activities, which support the school and advance the education of the pupils attending and make a difference to the educational experience of pupils at the school now and in the future
Providing and assisting in the provision of facilities at the school not normally provided by the local authority.
To enable these activities, the PFA run a variety of fundraising events throughout the year. Equipment purchased in the past and funds raised going forward leave a lasting legacy that would not be possible without the support of the PFA. You can see where our funds have made a difference and will continue to do so when we publish new stories about the work we are doing.
The PFA is keen to encourage more parents to get involved in whatever way you can as this will bring many rewards, least of which is the chance to make a real difference. The PFA is a voluntary organisation, membership of which is open to:
Parents or guardians of pupils attending the school
Parents or guardians of ex-pupils of the school
Ex-pupils of the school
Ex-members of staff of the school
All members of staff of the school are automatically ex-officio members of the association.
If you are interested in joining the team, helping at any of the forthcoming events or even just providing assistance with refreshments on school consultation evenings then please send us an email. Your help in whatever capacity will be very much appreciated.
