St. Andrew’s School Association (SASA)
Hello, and a very warm welcome from St Andrew’s C.E Primary School from the SASA team.
We are St Andrew’s School Association, the PTFA, and we have the pleasure of working alongside the school, parents and carers and our Governor’s to provide additional funds to financially support school trips, music lessons and new equipment for our children.
We are currently helping to raise money to enhance our play areas for the school, providing a more inspirational and stimulating outdoor learning environment.
All money raised goes to the school, and we aim to reach around £10,000 a year so you can see already that we really need support to achieve this.
We appreciate that time and money is precious, so we plan our events annually and we plan our meetings accordingly and try to keep these brief and to the point where we can, although we do like to have a bit of a chat occasionally!
Due to Covid, fundraising has been affected and some events had to be cancelled over the last 18 months. We are cautiously planning for 2021 / 2022 and once confirmed, events will be detailed on the calendar which can be seen on the school website.
If you feel that you have something to add, however big or small, we would really love to hear from you. Maybe you have an exciting skill or talent, or perhaps you would just like to offer an hour or so to man a stall at the carnival or to help to tidy up afterwards. Maybe you work for a company who could donate raffle prizes or perhaps you are an ideas person who could come up with some new and fantastic ways for us to engage our families and children into getting involved. You do not need to join the committee if you feel that this is not for you, however, please consider joining our Helpers of SASA Facebook group where you will see details posted advertising all events and you can help without joining the committee itself.
We are all here for the same reason and we are all very approachable so please ask around and your year representative would be delighted to have a chat with you.
We are currently looking to recruit a new chair or chairpersons to lead this fabulous team. Meanwhile, please continue to contact Nykki Greaves with any queries that you may have.
Please join the SASA Facebook Page to keep up to date with what is going on.
Many thanks in advance
