P.S.A.F - Porthleven School Association of Friends

Area Director Andy and local branch manager Daren came along to  meet our pupils. Our pupils were being treated to 'trade lessons' by Helston College Construction department head Nigel and his colleague Nigel. This was to introduce the children to traditional trades, have fun and a chance to support our bid for a grant.

PTA is for the children of our school. It is about enhancing the school & it’s facilities.

But it needs support, ideas and time. We can all work together to make our school a positive, fun

place to be.

Porthleven School has applied for Jewson’s Community Prize and have made the shortlist!

We now need votes, and a lot of them!

We have applied for 48k to build an outdoor shower and toilet block.




If we had an outdoor shower block and toilets it would have a huge positive impact on our pupils and schools future.

Porthleven School encourages children to get active and do more sports, introducing after school activities. At the moment we rent outside toilets for events but we simply don't have the funds to continue to do so.

We started a gardening club to educate children on how to grow and then cook fruit and veg. Again we are limited in the summer as the school main building is closed and a lot of the plants die off during this season as we are unable to extend classes due to lack of toilets outside.

We could open up our school to other schools across the UK for camping - so the potential people benefiting is unlimited really. We live in a beautiful part of Cornwall.

We have over 4000 pupils in our Educational Trust and we host really big events at Porthleven School having this facility would make a huge difference to our events.

I have been fundraising for over 7 years for Porthleven School as a volunteer and love the very bones of it! It’s a school that not only encourages kids academically but really cares about the kids. PLEASE GET VOTING!! Share the page too xxxxxx VOTE for PORTHLEVEN SCHOOL!!
