Parent School Association


Chestnuts Parent Support Association is all about fund-raising events to support the school. We are a registered charity #1147336

We are currently headed by Co-Chairs Ellie Livingstone (until July 2018) and Marika Gauci.  Our Treasurer is Sarah McPhee.  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.


We work together with all our parents and carers, and local community groups on 3 annual events: Chestival, the Winter Fair, Year 6 Careers Day; and many other occasional events: Barn Dance, Monsters' Ball, Valentines Disco.
