Parents and Friends Association [P.F.A.]

The aims of the P.F.A. may be simplified as follows:

1. To aid parent/teacher communication

2. To facilitate social contact within the school

3. To support fundraising activities

4. To fulfil a pastoral care role

5. Public Relations

6. To support and promote parent participation at Greythorn.

P.F.A. provides a forum where all parents can participate and develop a shared parent view. The association cooperates closely with the Principal and School Council. All this is achieved in a friendly relaxed atmosphere where parents can gain an understanding of the education system for the benefit of their students, exchange ideas and develop friendships.

The P.F.A. Annual General Meeting and election of Office Bearers takes place in March each year.
