Chestnuts needs you!

Do our fun mini-quiz to see how.

  1. Do you have time, energy and ideas to help run the PSA?

Yes -> Great! Please come to the AGM and put your hand up when we ask for new chair/co-chairs. Feel free to talk to any of the current committee beforehand to see what is involved, or email any questions to

Ummm, not sure (or Nooo!) -> go to question 2

  1. Would you like to be involved in the PSA but don’t feel confident to chair it?

Yes -> Fab, we need people to help make decisions at meetings like approving spending, suggesting new ways to fund-raise, brain storm new events and add to existing successes like Chestival

Yes but I can’t come to meetings -> No problem, you can still contribute ideas to the email above, or add ideas/suggestions to the Facebook page

No -> Fair enough, there are other ways you can support the school, go to question 3

  1. Do you enjoy the events that the PSA runs, eg Chestival, Winter Fair?

Yes, I want to be involved with that -> Brilliant! We need loads of volunteers across all events. Sometimes it is simply taking money at the door, or running a stall, other times it could be learning a new skill like making popcorn or fairy floss, or running an arts and crafts table. Keep an eye out for the volunteer requests online and in the newsletter.

Yes, but I can’t commit to helping -> That’s OK, we all have busy lives. But if you can come to the event then you are supporting the school by paying the entry fee, buying a raffle ticket, eating the food & drink on offer etc

Yes, but I can’t attend (or No, I can’t face the noise ;) ) -> We always need donations –

Families - old uniforms, items to sell at bric-a-brac, cakes and biscuits for the bake sale etc. How about a prize for the raffle?

Businesses  - sponsor events or a stall with a cash donation 

Employers - some employers offer to 'match' funding, which doubles the fundraising, will yours?

Sadly our current chairs are stepping down, so we need new enthusiastic helpers for all aspects of the PSA in order to continue our fabulous fund-raising through fun events.

Please come along to our Annual General Meeting (AGM) to find out more about us and how we work – Tuesday 27th February at 7.30pm in the Parents’ Room.
