Welcome to all our parents
Welcome to the Croxley Danes School Parent Association (CDS PA). All parents / carers of children at the school automatically become members of the CDS PA. The purpose of the PA is to support the school and its community, through social events and fundraising activities. The money raised will be used for extra-curricular activities, equipment or facilities for the students and school environment.
Everyone is welcome to attend our meetings - they are not just for committee members. We would welcome your ideas and involvement. Meeting dates will be posted above.
Since January 2018, we have been meeting regularly and making the necessary arrangements when starting a new charity, as well as running fundraising events and activities. We will, of course, keep parents informed about our fundraising including any donations or purchases for the school.
We ran our first event on Tuesday 22nd May 2018 when we served refreshments at the school’s first Creative Arts Evening. You can find a write-up, photos and video highlights in the News section of this website here. It was a lovely evening and we made a small profit. Every penny counts for a new charity and it was a good start!
We held our first Quiz Night in November 2018 which was a great success and we purchased our first gift for the school in December 2018 - a lovely Christmas Tree and decorations. Head over to our Facebook page for more information and photos of these two highlights.
We are looking forward to running more events in the future to raise money for the school and bring the community together for fun and memorable occasions.
Second-hand school uniform and PE kit
We currently have a small amount of second-hand uniform / PE kit from lost property and parent donations. There is not yet enough to hold a second-hand sale. We expect the amount will increase over time and will likely hold second-hand sales during 2018-19.
Parents can donate good quality items of uniform and PE kit which are now too small via the school office. Please wash, dry and remove name labels prior to donating. Thank you.
Stikins Name Labels
We have partnered with the label company Stikins. The PA will earn 30% commission on every order placed, so do please have a look before buying name labels from elsewhere. Click on the link below to place your order and our unique fundraising number 35954 will be pre-filled on the order form. If you decide to order via another method, please remember to include our fundraising number on the order so that the company can calculate our commission. Thank you.
Please note: if current parents have bought Find My Kit labels, these will still work in reuniting items with their owners.
