Parents’ Association funds have helped to build a state of the art astro pitch for all year round sports for all pupils from Nursery to Form 6, a fabulous outdoor classroom in our Early Years provision to allow free flow, indoor/outdoor learning whatever the weather and our beautiful forest school classroom that we also use for our STEM workshops.
Other projects funded by the Parents’ Association include:
- Installation of the ICT suite
- Construction of the nature garden and pond
- Trim trail (an age-appropriate assault course)
- Storytelling chair and benches
- Gardening boxes
- School Radio Station
- Theatre Renovation
Throughout the year, we also purchase smaller items, such as sports day gazebos and flags (for the athletes’ parade!), playground equipment, outdoor lighting for evening events, teas and coffees for parents at school events, the teachers’ wish list that enables the staff to request any extra items they would like, and lots more.
The Parents’ Association brings the school together in many different ways. It fundraises throughout the year creating friendships and opportunities for the school. It is a huge part of the school week, with members frequenting the grounds throughout the day helping in one way or another, but it never loses its main focus; it’s all about the children!
