PTA / CCSA
The PTA in our school is called ‘Colden Common School Association’ or the CCSA for short.
The CCSA has a very important and active role within the school; they organise events, activities and raise much needed funds for additional facilities that the children enjoy and learn from in and around the school. Information concerning the CCSA and upcoming events are usually issued via Parent Mail, flyers/forms in your child’s book bag, posters on the noticeboards, and on our Facebook page – look for Colden Common School Association and please like us!
Details and photos of some of the events that are held each year, can be found in the Gallery and Documents section below. Please note all CCSA newsletters and communications can be found in the ‘Letters’ section of the school website.
Who is in the CCSA?
If you have a child attending the school, then you are automatically a member of the CCSA and can get involved! The CCSA committee is a small group of very friendly, hard-working and active parents, all with different roles to play, that usually meet twice a term. They are always welcome to new faces and ideas! The AGM is held in October and is a great way to find out what events have happened in the previous year, how much has been raised and what it has been spent on, and more importantly find out the plans for next year and decide what to fundraise towards.
What does the CCSA fundraise for?
Recently, the CCSA have provided funds for the redevelopment of the pond and new decking, new white board projectors for every classroom, den building and outdoor scientific equipment, exciting and fun maths resources for every year group, and refurbishment of the library.
In previous years, the CCSA have successfully fundraised for a new inclusive Junior playground, PA system, classroom visualisers, ICT equipment and even Lego robots! They have also organised collection of enough used plastic bottles to build a fantastic school ‘bottle’ greenhouse!
The CCSA also contributes every year towards the coach travel for the Year 6 Residential trip to Osmington Bay, as well as providing a Leavers Party for the Year 6’s at the end of the summer.
