When your child starts MSJ, you automatically become a member of the Parents and Friends Association – PFA for short.
An exciting calendar of activities is planned annually, which is run by the parents themselves, some of whom are members of the PFA Committee which meet monthly. The staff and directors, along with friends of the school, also get fully involved!
Being part of this great group of people can be fun and we really do have a laugh! We don’t hold you to coming to meetings, or for your help, but just appreciate any time you have.

The PFA’s first Treat Friday was a huge success! We raised £236, selling sweets, preloved uniform and lucky dips. We were overwhelmed by your support and even sold out of all our treats!
On Thursday 28th November, we will host our school discos. Key Stage 1 can come along for a twirl on the dance floor from 4-5pm. Key Stage 2 can boogie their hearts out from 5:15-6:30pm. Tickets will cost £3.50 and will be on sale at the school office. Each child will receive a packet of crisps and squash & water will be available throughout the evening.
We are always looking for volunteers to help out at these events. If you feel you may be able to lend a hand for either disco, please send an email to email@example.com.

A Just Eat order recently earned the school £2.50 and a purchase from The Book People added £1.39 to the pot. Small amounts like this will quickly add up over a year. You can even earn money for MSJ with your Amazon shopping. Just follow the links through the Easy Fundraising app to Amazon Smile and select our school as your chosen charity.

We really hope to see you soon and take this opportunity to leave you with this thought;
Everything the PFA does is for Moordown St John’s children – your children – and the school!
Thanks for your continued support.
