Annual General Meeting (AGM)
Our Annual General Meeting is held at the beginning of the academic year and this is an opportunity for all parents to come along and hear in more detail about events run, funds raised and how the money has been spent. It is also the occasion when we elect our new committee.
How You Can Get Involved
There are plenty of ways to get involved. You could offer to help with events or with preparation for events. You can join the committee or just help occasionally.
It doesn’t matter if you can’t help on a regular basis, or even if you can’t come into school. There are always little jobs that can be done from home if you have half an hour to spare e.g. wrapping gifts, preparing raffle tickets etc. “Many hands make light work.”
