The PTFA (Parents, Teachers and Friends ofSt.Columba’s Association) was founded in 2011. Since then, it had raised several thousand funds for College funds, providing Educational Trips, Outdoor Seating, an Entertainment System for the Canteen, Blackout Curtains and many more worthwhile contributions to the school.
Meetings are held as required and are informal, fun and an excellent way for parents to get involved in the life of the school. The PTFA has met the pupils from the Student Council and works closely with the pupils in organising events and talking about what is needed to keep continually improving the College.
To date, activities organised have included:
- Car Wash
- Monster Bingo
- Draw and Raffle
- Cookery Demonstration
Our current Chairperson is Mr D Fitzsimons. Parents are informed of meetings via the text messaging service and everyone is very welcome.
