Easton School Association (ESA)
A warm welcome from your ESA.
We’ll try and keep this brief, as we know we all have lots to do outside of school. But, since we're a friendly bunch, we'd really like to introduce ourselves and tell you some key information about the ESA (that's Easton School Association) how you can help us, and what's in it for you and your children.
Our group is called the ESA and has been running for over 10 years. We're a committee made up of mums, dads, grandparents and friends who volunteer to help the school.
The main function of our ESA is to support the school by raising as much money as we can to enhance, enrich and improve learning experiences for the children. We also provide those 'little extras' that make school life memorable, such as leaver’s gifts, discos and even the odd freeze-pop!
We also exist to bring the communities of school and home closer together because it makes sense for parents to be involved in the life of their chosen school.
Lastly, we’re here for the simple reason that we want to get together socially, meet new people and have fun!
Last year we raised a fantastic £2,000.00 and supported the school in many ways including new classroom story rugs, microphones for the productions and a new sandpit cover for the massive sandpit on the field, currently we are saving for fixed play equipment. We organise fun events for the children including Christmas Fayres, Fun Runs and the Leavers’ Celebrations.
We always try to respond when asked to help the school, and after the work is done, it's so rewarding to see the children enjoy new resources and equipment we’ve been able to provide.
The more people become involved, the more we can achieve and the easier it will be. Why not come along to find out more? Our first meeting of the year will be advertised by text and newsletter.
Even if you have younger children at home, or only a small amount of time, could you come to a meeting, help set up an event, serve food or design a poster? Perhaps you have a professional skill you could help us out with? You don't have to come into the school; many of our volunteering tasks can be done from home.
To find out more please don’t hesitate to seek us out on the playground! Our Joint Chair Hannah Barton (Verity & matilda's mum) and Hattie Warriner (Otis's mum) or Sian Kingston (Edward and Abigail’s mum) would be more than happy to hear from you.
We look forward to seeing you soon.
