Parents’ and Friends’ Association

Welcome to the Colfe’s Parents’ and Friends’ Association (PAFA) page. 

As a parent, you are automatically a member of PAFA and we value whatever contribution you can make – whether it is donating used uniform, attending termly meetings, volunteering at events or signing up to be a Class Representative.  

We hold a number of social and fundraising events through the year including an annual firework display, Christmas fair, used uniform sales and various social events. 

PAFA 300 Club
You are welcome to join the PAFA 300 Club at any time. This is our lottery-style fundraiser, with prizes of up to £300 awarded every term. The money raised goes towards funding additional items and activities that enhance school life for the pupils. If you wish to be included in the draw, please complete the PAFA 300 Club form and email it to Lois Moules in the Bursar’s office: LMoules@Colfes.com 

PAFA Committee Meeting Minutes
Minutes of the termly PAFA meetings will be posted here.  

Getting involved
Volunteers are always welcome! If you can spare a little time, we would love to have you onboard as a Class Rep. This is a great way to get to know other parents and to help PAFA with our different events throughout the year – even if it is just sending a quick reminder to parents, this helps us. If you’d like to help, or would like more information, please email pafa@colfes.com 

PAFA used uniform sales
Our used uniform sales take place each term and are online. We advertise the dates of our sales in advance via email and we collect as much donated uniform as possible beforehand. You’ll be updated on the dates of forthcoming sales through the emails from the school. 

Additional fundraising
Help us raise funds for Colfe’s when you shop! You can do this by installing the easyfundraising app which allows you to shop at over 5,700 stores online, including Ebay, Amazon, Ocado, Pets at Home, Sweaty Betty, as well as many travel companies. To support PAFA, go to easyfundraising and remember to set the donation reminder on your browser. 

The Ink Bin
Do you have any old printer cartridges? If so, you can drop them off at either the Junior School or Senior School receptions and we will arrange to recycle them with the Ink Bin.  We can raise funds by recycling your HP or Canon cartridges, but all other brands will also be recycled. Please be aware that we can’t accept large toner cartridges. You can find out more about this scheme here.
