About the PSA
About the PSA
Our Lady of Lourdes has a thriving Parent & School Association, with a community of parents passionate about being part of school life. The PSA is a charity ( 293175) and is run by a committee of volunteer parents, working with teachers.
Building a community
We organise a range of fun activities across the school year – we want to build a strong sense of community between parents, children and teachers. Regular events have included a Christmas Fayre with Santa’s grotto, a Halloween disco, an Easter egg hunt, a summer BBQ and movie nights.
New online fundraising events are being planned for 2020/21. Check out soon on the News and Events tab.
We aim to raise funds to support the school. In 2019/2020 we raised £13,756 even when some events were cancelled due to COVID-19. The committee decides how the money is spent - in the past few years they have been proud to fund a new playground at the front of the school. We have also supported building and maintenance projects to upgrade the school learning environment. In 2020 a new ICT suite was installed.
We welcome all parents and teachers to get involved with the PSA in whatever capacity – some help at or support events, some take on a particular task, others join the committee – it all helps. Parents often find they contribute in different ways over the years their children are in the school.
