All staff and parents are encouraged to be members of the Parent Staff Association (PSA) at Marjorie McClure School. The committee consists of 4 executive posts: Chairman, Vice Chairman, Treasurer and Secretary, plus an Honorary President (usually the Headteacher). There are, generally, about 8 members of the committee.
Once a year (usually October or November) the committee hold an Annual General meeting to report to parents and staff, and to elect a new committee for the following year. This is also an opportunity for staff and parents to get together on a social level.
The main function of the PSA is to raise funds for the school to purchase items not usually provided for by the school budget. Such items may include computer accessories, extra PE and music equipment, and help towards school trips or discos and parties for the children.
The type of functions usually held to raise funds include Summer fetes, Race Nights, Family Barbecues and Christmas Shopping Evenings.
If you would like to contact the PSA please phone the school to leave a message for Debbie Knowles, the current Chair person.
If you are a parent, messages can also be sent in the pupil / contact book and Debbie or one of the other committee members will reply to you.
