Belhaven Parents, Teachers & Friends Association (PTFA)

PTFA 2022 

The Parents, Teachers and Friends Association at Belhaven fulfils a vital role. The aim of the Association is to support the connections between families and the school.

The PTFA Committee is currently chaired by Sabby Bucher whose son Beetle is in F1.

Every year the PTFA organises its own events and also supports school-run events – it raises funds for the school and for other charitable causes and does a fantastic job of bringing people together.

Sabby and the PTFA are looking forward to organising events throughout the year, starting with the Highland Games. Each year group has a representative.  

There will be a £5 charge on your bill for each term that will ensure that the PTFA is well-resourced and positioned to support you and your family. 

A list of the events that the PTFA plans to arrange is below:

  • Belhaven’s own ‘Highland Games’
  • A 1920s themed fund-raising party
  • A Grand Raffle
  • Outdoor Cake Sale and Coffee Morning to coincide with the Junior play weekend out 

On a regular basis the PTFA will also organise:  

  • Summer holiday meetings prior to the start of the academic year
  • 'Journey breakers' before weekends out (tea/coffee & cakes for parents in front hall) 
  • Sale of Nicky Jack art before weekends out
  • Leaving presents for teaching and support staff
  • Year group coffee mornings
  • Termly second-hand uniform sales.

In the past, the PTFA have organised many events, including the following:  

  • A Belhaven Dog Show with classes, an agility course, terrier racing, a cake stall, guess the weight of the cake etc and, with help from the children, face-painting and a lucky dip. The dog show raised more than £1000 split between Fostering Compassion and Muirfield Riding Therapy.  
  • A Book Fair for Belhaven pupils, raising £170 for Can Do East Lothian
  • A 'Bond Night' with cocktails, dinner, raffle & ‘casino’, raising about £1500 for school.  
  • A Jubilee Party, including dinner, quiz, photo booth and other fun games!


We hope that you will all benefit from the support network provided by the PTFA in the future. If you have any questions, suggestions for events or would like to be involved in any way, then please do contact Sabby Bucher on
