GASPA is holding their Annual General Meeting (AGM) on Thursday 22 April from 8 – 9 pm – it will be virtual – on the school’s zoom platform (https://zoom.us/join). Everyone is welcome but to join you will require a meeting id and password; which we will share separately with parents and carers through our parent rep network and via ParentMail. Please join us as we welcome new committee members and discuss fundraising plans.Agenda & flyer attached
Download our family trail map for just £3, and enjoy walking around Berrylands, spotting bunnies to solve Park Ranger Elliot’s carroty crime mystery. Running from Thursday 1 to Friday 16 April, buy your trail at www.pta-events.org/gaspa & print copies for all those taking part. Every family that completes the trail is entered into a special prize draw to win a family prize. It’s a circular (buggy friendly) route so you can begin at any point.
The Easter Uniform sale will take place on Thursday 12 April 10.30am – 12.30pm. Items from £1.50 and contactless payment available.
