Return to Parents


PTFA_logoWe have a very active Parent Teacher and Friends Association.

Everyone with an association to the school is deemed a PTFA member – parents,  guardians, carers, grandparents, staff, voluntary helpers, teachers and governors.

All are welcome to attend the meetings and to help with organising and manning events.
No need to feel guilty if you can’t spare much time as there are many ways that you can contribute.

The costume library

The Welwyn St Mary’s PTFA have set up a costume library as a resource for parents, staff and children. The aim is to help provide costumes for history days, drama productions (such as Christmas plays) and worship.

There are various categories including:

  • Nativity
  • Victorian
  • Roman
  • Greek
  • Viking
  • Mayan
  • Stone Age
  • Evacuee

Parents wishing to borrow costumes from the library are welcome to make a small, voluntary contribution which will go directly to the PTFA.

The library exists thanks to the generous donations from parents and friends of the school. We would always welcome any donations of unneeded or outgrown costumes or accessories.

Borrowing a costume…

Donating a costume

We hope that the costume library will grow and grow as time goes by. Of course this cannot happen without your help. If you have any costumes or accessories that you no longer need or that you feel would be of use to others, please contact Thank you for your help!

This is a brilliant resource created by our PTFA. We would like to thank those involved for creating and running it!
