Update from the Academy Opportunity Fund

posted 19 Dec 2016, 05:22 by Michele Colt
Our school fund, the Academy Opportunity Fund (AOF), continues to be an important fundraiser. This year we have used it for a range of purchases for the benefit of all students.  Items that have been purchased include, along with a generous donation from the PTA, additional staging to enable the music and drama productions to continue to grow and flourish at RPA.

In addition, the relatively recent arrival of our chickens has been assisted with funding from the AOF along with the purchase of compost for the adjacent vegetable gardens where we will be trying, as far as possible, to be self-sufficient in egg and vegetable production in the Summer months!

It is hoped that this fund will also be used to assist with a bid we have made for a new minibus.  We hope to hear by late January/early February whether we have succeeded in being awarded this. We will keep you advised on whether that bid is successful.

As you can see,  the AOF continues to be a vital area for raising additional funding so we would like to thank all those parents that have make either one off, termly or annual donations.  Should you wish to make a donation the school website has all the details on how to do this. Donations can me made via Parent Pay or directly to the school bank account. Thank you for your on-going support.
