Textile & Ink/toner cartridge recycling collection - Friday 20th November
Thank you for all the donations of textiles and ink/toner cartridges. We raised around £380 from the textiles alone and will update on how much the cartridges raised when we hear from Empties Please. The new way of collecting worked really well and we hope to be able to do another collection early next year.
Northleaze Parent Staff Association (PSA) is a registered charity which aims to support the school by organising activities to generate funds that will enhance the school learning experience of our children. Parents, carers and guardians of pupils at the school, plus the teaching and non-teaching staff employed by the school are all members of Northleaze PSA when they join the school. We welcome volunteers who'd like to help - all support really makes a difference to Northleaze.
PSA Treasurer - Job Spec and PSA Guide for Treasurers
PSA Vacancy - Treasurer (September 2020)
This year we are sad to say that the current PSA treasurer, Jo Perkins, is stepping down. Jo has done an amazing job as treasurer and has provided immense support to the PSA. She has been an integral part of the team and has supported every event over the years; the PSA are incredibly grateful for everything she has done.
This leaves us with the role of Treasurer to fill and Jo is more than happy to help in handing over to someone new. Below is the job spec and background information to the role. If this is something you might be interested in or would like additional info please talk to your class rep or Tanith Penberthy.
What the job spec doesn't say is that being part of the PSA is also fun and rewarding and we have a great team this year. In Jo's words 'I've really enjoyed doing it. It's been great to feel part of the team and play a key role in the PSA'.
