There are several different ways that you can help the School Association:
The School Association is always on the lookout for new members. We have an average of about 10 – 12 parents and teachers on the team, and generally we recruit new members at the start of the school year, but if you’re interested in joining then please talk to any of the members for details. We try and ensure that the meetings we have are relaxed but productive – hence when we do meet (about once a month), it’s in The Swan pub, but with a set agenda and purpose.
Several of the biggest fundraising events that the School Association runs throughout the year can only happen with the additional support of parents. The Summer Fete and Christmas Fair both need additional people to help man the stalls. Please check your newsletters regularly to see what’s coming up and how you can help.
Each of the events that the School Association runs has one major goal – to raise money for the school in the most enjoyable way we can. Please come along, take part and have fun – and know that by doing so you will be directly helping your children’s education.
You may have a particular skill that you think we may be able to utilise so please let us know. If you work for a large organisation that you think may be interested in supporting the school again please inform us. Raffles and prizes that happen throughout the year can only take place using donations of prizes and money from local companies, organisations and benefactors. If you are able to contribute something (or know someone who can), then we would love to hear from you.
