For those of you who don’t already know we are lucky enough to have a thriving Parents, Teachers & Friends Association in school, which was formed in 1987.It contributes greatly to the heart and soul of All Cannings School. As well as subsidising a number of trips and visits, it has raised money for many essential items over the years including stage lighting, PE equipment, digital cameras for each class, £1000 for new reading books ,a refurbished IT suite and new playground equipment for the older children. Most recently we have contributed £3,000 for new playground markings and £300 for each class and continue to raise funds.
Activities are arranged for fund raising, but just as importantly, for fun. There are huge “school” community benefits to getting involved and helping out at events, the children love it too. As well as arranging events for children and families we also aim to involve the the local community. Examples include: Christmas and Easter Bingo, Quiz and Curry Night, a Christmas Market and Summer Fete during which we often run a netball and football tournament for other schools.
We are always open to new ideas and encourage people to come and join in to make events happen. We work as a team with everyone contributing, when they can, to individual events.
