Our first meeting of the year, the Ashley Down Primary (ADPS) Annual General Meeting (AGM) took place on Tuesday September 15th, and it was lovely to see many virtual attendees! A big thank you to all those who attended, as well as to those who asked questions and shared ideas. The option to join virtually worked so well that we are going to adopt this as standard practice for all PSA meetings going forward.
As a registered charity, we are legally required to have an AGM, where we look back at the previous year and elect a core committee for the upcoming year, who are nominated and voted in. The PSA Committee for 2020-21 is:
If you would like to contact us, please feel free to email us (firstname.lastname@example.org), or please do speak to us in person – socially distanced, not in the playground and following the one-way system, of course!
We also had multiple offers to support with communications and events, so a huge thank you to all those offering their time and energy to support PSA initiatives! But we can never have enough hands, so please keep that support coming.
AGM Headlines – The Good News and the Bad News
Thanks to amazing support, hard work and dedication to all those that have got involved with the PSA (be that in organising or attending events, donating and / or helping out at events), 2019 – 2020 was set to be the biggest fund-raising year yet!
Sadly, due the cancellation of a number of events in the latter half of the last school year for obvious reasons, we are starting this year approximately £2000 down from our starting point in September 2019. But, we are determined to build on the energy and enthusiasm from last year, and to continue to raise funds (in creative and new ways!) with the help of you all, our brilliantly supportive PSA community.
Would anyone be interested in being a Trustee of the PSA?
By law the PSA has to have Trustees, who ensure that the PSA have proper control of funds where people are raising money on their behalf, and that funds are spent (or earmarked) for the purposes for which they were raised.
All Committee Members are automatically Trustees but we also have non-Committee Member Trustees. Two of our current Trustees are stepping down – would anyone out there be interested in filling the role? You would need to attend up to 3 meetings per school year.
Please email email@example.com if you are interested in hearing more about it.
