Parent School Association
Chestnuts Parent Support Association is all about fund-raising events to support the school. We are a registered charity #1147386
We are currently in search of new committee members. We need a Chair, a minute-taker to type up and post meeting minutes to the blog, someone to take charge of the popcorn and candy floss machines and someone else to lead tea & coffee sales at parents' meetings. As a volunteer organisation, you can even design a role to suit you - get in touch!
Over the last 5 years the Chair role has worked well with 2, 3 or 4 Co-Chairs. Our Treasurer of 5 years, Sarah McPhee, is currently handing over to Michelle Sidhu. Jen Flavell is our Social Media manager. There are about a dozen regular volunteers, including other ex-Chairs, who are committed to supporting our PSA & can be relied on to volunteer for events. We welcome all offers of help and contributions. A new committee is elected every year in March.
We work together with all our parents and carers, and local community groups on fun family fund-raising events: , the Winter Fair, Year 6 Careers Day and other occasional events.
