Parents of Aldrington
The ‘PoA’ is a very active parents' association which holds several events throughout the year for pupils, parents and families. We raises substantial funds for school equipment and activities.
The POA is a registered charity that aims to “advance the education of the pupils of the school by providing and assisting in the provision of facilities for education at the school.” We normally meet once every half term and circulate minutes of meetings over email and through the Classlist network (if you have children at Aldrington please join at www.classlist.com or download the app on your phone).
We need help from committed parents who have time, skills or resources to share. It could be wrapping Lucky Dip prizes, donating auction items, running the refreshments table at a school play, getting a good deal on sports kit, or dressing up as the Easter Bunny (shhh – don’t tell the children!).
Many hands make light work, so if you can help out in any way please email.
