Please remember St Andrews PTFA are registered with Stamp Tastic and Stikins. They offer parents the opportunity to purchase quality labels for your children’s school uniform etc, whilst earning the school PTFA commission at the same time! Lost property is a problem in all schools and having your child’s items named is extremely helpful to the school in getting them back to you. You can simply stick Stikins labels onto lunchboxes, water bottles, or clothing. They can even be used in shoes! Or you can use the personalised stamp on fabric, metal, wood & some plastics.
