Ockbrook School Parents’ Association organises many varied fund-raising events, which prove very popular among, parents, teachers and children alike.
The OSPA fund-raising effort has helped the school with facilities and equipment, including the school minibuses, lighting and sound equipment, digital photography equipment, sheet music and much more.
The events themselves are well-established fixtures in the school calendar, including quiz nights, a summer fair involving the entire school community and the ever-popular May Ball, held in a top local venue. OSPA also runs a nearly-new uniform shop throughout the year.
Of course, the success of OSPA is wholly dependent on the participation of parents and new members are always welcome. Support is greatly appreciated, however little time you have to spare, be it for manning a cake stall, serving drinks, helping with events organisation and supervision, donating raffle prizes and generating ideas for fund-raising activities.
OSPA meets every term and details of meetings are distributed through the school on a regular basis.
If you are interested in helping OSPA or you would like to know more, you can contact Jackie Smith by telephoning the school on 01332 673532 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org.
