St. Augustine’s Catholic Primary School and Nursery, is very well supported by the Parent and Staff Association (PSA). The PSA are a group of parents who have children attending St Augustine’s together with representatives from the school’s teaching staff. The PSA are very active, organising many social and fund-raising functions throughout the year, for both parents/carers and the children. The events have included discos, cake sales, cinema night and the Summer Fayre. The funds are used to purchase much needed equipment for the school and also pay for activities which enhance the children’s learning experiences. PSA welcomes all volunteer help especially at the time of its biggest fundraising events.

We are currently looking for parents with the following skills to assist the PSA
- We are keen to have a St. Augustine’s Catholic Primary School football team. Anybody interested please let us know.
- If you would like to know more and get involved with the PSA and the fundraising we do for our children, come and introduce yourself. We have recently extended our ways of communication with our school community, so that everyone gets the information sent out. We are currently collecting email addresses and mobile numbers to add to our ‘WhatsApp’ group from those parents who wish to help. Please pop into the School Office and leave your details.
We look forward to welcoming you and to make this PSA a great success.
