Parents and Friends of Nower Hill
The Parents and Friends Association (PTFA) was established in 1983 and has a long history of working alongside the school community. Our aim is to promote a sense of community between staff, parents and the children of Nower Hill and to raise money for additional resources for the students. The school is more than a place of learning; it is a warm, caring, nurturing community where all are valued and encouraged to play a role. Parents who take an active role, no matter how small, within the PTFA help to build on this.
If you would like to get involved, please contact the PTFA who would be delighted to hear from you: firstname.lastname@example.org
The committee structure is as follows:
Chairperson: Mrs Bijal Bavishi
Vice Chairperson: Mr Anthony Bremner
Treasurer: Mrs Jugjeet Shah
Honorary President: Ms Louise Voden
Minute Secretary: Mrs Nimisha Mashru
The Parents, Teachers and Friends Committee, which has gone from strength to strength, aims to organise an event once a term, such as the Quiz Night, Year 7 Spring Disco and Comedy Night Fundraiser - there is something for all the family to enjoy. In addition, they provide refreshments at the many evening events throughout the school year. Thanks to the support of the parents/carers, students, teachers and friends, this year they have contributed over £2,000 to the school community, raised over several fundraising events. By sending your son/daughter to Nower Hill High School, you become part of the PTFA and your involvement is welcomed at every level. Remember you get out what you put in - this is true of every community. The Parents, Teachers and Friends committee look forward to meeting you.

Meet the Team
My name is Bijal Bavishi and I have 3 children. My youngest daughter is now in Year 9. I work from home.
Since a very young age, I have always supported the local community in fundraising, so when my children started school, joining a PTA became a natural extension of what I enjoy doing. For 14 years from 2008-2022, I served as Secretary and then Vice Chair of the PTA at Longfield Primary School. Seeing the children having fun and supporting the school by purchasing those extra items not covered by the school budget was very rewarding.
Since 2016, it has been an honour and privilege to be the PTFA Chair at Nower Hill. I am grateful to work alongside an amazing team of volunteers and Nower Hill staff, who are all enriching the lives of our future generation. I look forward to working with Nower Hill and parents during the years ahead.
My name is Nimisha and I am the Nower Hill PTFA committee secretary. I have two children at Nower Hill in Years 12 and 13.
I joined the PTFA to help and also to be part of the community. It’s great to see other parents, which you miss once the children move on to High School, but also the pleasure of helping the school with resources that they need for the children. Through fundraising, we are able to support Nower Hill. Being a part of and playing an active role in the PTFA is very rewarding.
My name is Jugjeet and I am the Treasurer for the Nower Hill PTFA. I work in the NHS and I have 3 daughters who are in Years 9, 11 and 13.
I used to be an occasional helper but took up the role of Treasurer last year. I really enjoy being part of the PTFA. The PTFA plays such an important role in raising funds for resources for our children. They are a great team who work together to run fun events for both children and parents. I feel privileged to work alongside them and would encourage other parents to join our great team.
