The school itself provides an excellent education and financially supports many aspects of the curriculum but the Association goes beyond that to help provide the “nice to have” items that can sometimes be beyond the scope of the School’s budget.
We have purchased many items over the years, enhancing the provision for music, sport, dance and other physical activities, including the wonderful climbing equipment on the school playing field with its 'bouncy bark' safety surface, lots of useful IT resources including laptops and netbooks, along with computer programmable devices. We also provide finance for theatre groups and other outings and we organise many not-for profit events for the pupils' benefit. These include social events such as film nights and discos. We provide a “Secret Santa Shop” at Christmas to enable the pupils to buy secret presents for their parents and siblings.
The Association hold their Annual General Meeting each June / July to celebrate the successes of the previous year, talking about the many events that have been organised and the contributions made to the school in terms of new equipment and resources for the children to enjoy. The Association really contributes positively to the children's education and to the school community life.
We always welcome new members onto the Committee at any time of year, so if you are interested in being part of the team, contact any member of the Committee or ask at the School Office.
