We suggest that class reps organise one event per year, but as a group across two years to ensure you have enough volunteers: Nursery and Reception; Y1 & Y2; Y3 &Y4; Y5 & Y6.

Events should be intended to build community and/or raise money.
Every event is different, so not everything to be considered will be included here, but the PCSA committee is available to answer any questions you may have. It is only with the help of volunteers that we can achieve our goals of building community and meeting our fundraising targets. We thank you for your valuable input and don’t hesitate to ask if you’re unsure of anything.
See below a list of events that have been organised by PCSA class reps over the last few years. While the main objective is to run something to bring the school community together, the totals raised have been included for your information. The names of people who have organised each event before are included so you can contact them if you need to.

This event was organised by Justin Irwin, Kerri Perkins and Monica Samuel.
