WELCOME TO THE APFLS... LATYMER'S PTA WE ARE THE ASSOCIATION OF PARENTS AND FRIENDS OF THE LATYMER SCHOOL.
One of the elements of a successful school is parental support and encouragement. At Latymer it is not just about supporting your own child or children but also helping to give added-value to the school experience for all pupils. This is where the APFLS comes in.
There are four main areas to APFLS activities:-
- A traditional PTA with a summer fayre, quiz, car boot sales etc., raising funds to buy educationally supporting items
- Assisting a large, fully engaged school staff, with events such as music and drama evenings, also various parent evenings and the carol service
- Holding pupil specific events such as the Junior Party and the Year 11 prom
- A means for parents to interface socially
The APFLS is a registered charity and the efforts of many parents over the years have raised hundreds of thousands of pounds to add just a little more to the opportunities and experiences that Latymer can bring to all its students. From minibuses, through historical artefacts, to iPads, play scenery and goalposts and a complete spectrum in-between; all Latymer students benefit from our efforts. APFLS is therefore a vital contributor to the school’s educational offer.
As a Latymer parent you can do your part in supporting these efforts either in assisting with events or simply turning up and enjoying the show. All involvement will help ensure that there’ll be a successful APFLS supporting your children in their education and an organisation ready to pass on to future generations of parents wishing to support Latymer pupils. We also welcome innovative ideas to supplement our programme.
Help out, join in or simply enjoy.
