WHAT IS THE PARENTS’ ASSOCIATION?
The short answer is every parent or carer with a child at Camp School is automatically a member.
WHAT WE DO
Throughout the year we run numerous activities and events to raise funds for the school. In recent years the PA has provided significant funding for technology, books, play equipment, school trips, parties, and birthday books for every child with the aim of enhancing the children’s school experience.
WHO RUNS THE PARENTS’ ASSOCIATION?
The PA is run by a committee voted for by all the members at the Annual General Meeting where any member can stand. The idea is the Committee runs the charity but that all members are encouraged to help and contribute. We have a new elected committee for 2023 with Natasha Bates as Chair, Shaheina McGovern as Secretary and Chris Coadwell as Treasurer. You can contact us at .
WHAT EVENTS AND ACTIVITIES ARE THERE?
The main events are the Christmas and Summer fairs – these are designed to be great fun for all the family with crafts, games arcade, cake stalls, hot food and much more. These are great events to help at and enjoy.
In addition, the PA runs regular cake and second hand uniform sales, a hugely popular Quiz Night, Comedy Night and a School Camp Out in the summer where families can pitch their tents in the grounds and join in with games and activities. In the summer term “Ice cream Fridays” are a big hit after school. As well as providing new equipment and facilities for the school and the children, profits go towards funding the School Yearbook which every child receives for free. This is a lovely record of the children’s achievements over the year with pictures, photos and comments.
We hope to bring lots more exciting fundraising events and activities to Camp School this Academic Year! Some events that have been run in the past are as follows:
