The Queen Anne is very lucky to have an active parents association (Queen Anne Parents And Friends Association). Each year the committee is formed from volunteer parents and they work relentlessly to raise funds from a variety of events.
QAPAFA has seven board members who help the smooth running of the fundraising but without the support of the other volunteers and helpers, events would never be able to take place.
- Em Ankers – Co-Chair
- BenHindle – Co-Chair
- Carly Talbot – Secretary
- Deane Short – Treasurer
- Nisha Duggal – Co-Media Rep
- El Robinson – Co-Media Rep
- Lisa Warburton – Staff Rep
Introducing your new QAPAFA Committee
We are delighted to introduce you to the new QAPAFA committee for the 2019-2020 academic year. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with your ideas, either in person or through our email address email@example.com
|Em Ankers – Co-Chair
I’m Emma Ankers. I’ve got two boys, Henry and Charlie and I am the new Co-Chair of QAPAFA. I’m looking forward to seeing how we can best utilise the skills and talents of the parents whilst raising lots of money to add to our children’s experience at school. Part of my role is ensuring we have enough volunteers and helpers so that events can be run smoothly. If you think you can help us in anyway please come and speak to me. I’m sure we can find an ideal job you can help with!
|Ben Hindle – Co- Chair
I’m Ben Hindle, my daughter Charlotte is in reception at Queen Anne. I run my own business manufacturing equestrian clothing as well as doing a bit of innovation consulting on the side. I am looking forward to carrying on from the great work that was done by QAPAFA last year and making volunteering both effective for the school and fun for everyone involved.
|Carly Talbot – Secretary
I have 2 children, the eldest of whom is in Year 1 at Queen Anne. I work for a large consultancy in London, which I combine with passions for food and all things crafty and creative. In my new role as QAPAFA secretary I look forward to supporting a range of inclusive events for our school community, and focussing on making it easier for parents and carers to get involved in our work to enrich the school experience for our children.
|Deane Short – Treasurer
I also have two children, Florence (4), who has just started at Queen Anne, and Freddie (1). My main role on the committee is to make it as easy and fun for as many people as possible to donate money to QAPAFA (and then to count it!) so that the school can continue to provide incredible experiences for our children.
I work for myself and you will often find me in Costa if you just want to hand over £20 directly 😉
|Nisha Duggal – Co-Media Rep
I have a son in Year 1 called Rian. I work for the local NHS in Communications and Engagement. As a Media Rep I advertise all things QAPAFA across its media channels.
|El Robinson – Co-Media Rep
I have 2 children, Dylan (5) who is in Year 1, and Charlie (3). We aim is to highlight all stages of the wonderful fundraising work our school does through Social Media and the school. We also like to promote what your fundraising has achieved!
|Mrs Warburton – Teacher Liaison
I’m Lisa Warburton and I am the staff representative. I’ve been actively involved in QAPAFA for 8 years, and have been involved with PTAs for 15 years. I have three children, and currently teach Reception. My role is to create links between QAPAFA and the staff at the school.
Throughout the year there are a wide range of events that raise significant funds for the school, from bake sales ran by parents of each year group to full school involvement with the summer fair.
Once the fundraising event has happened, QAPAFA members, school staff and all involved with the school are able to discuss ideas for how the money should be spent. Most recently QAPAFA were able to held fund the building work of a new climbing frame for the children and new markings in the playground. Alongside larger purchases like this, QAPAFA also fund trips and events for the children on an annual basis.
This academic year we are hoping to raise £10,000! Can you help us do this?
QAPAFA welcomes all parents and carers to the termly QAPAFA meetings, if you would like to come along then either catch one of us in the playground or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. Attending the meetings and events are great ways to meet other parents, have fun and support the school. We are always looking for new volunteers, whether you have a great idea and would like to run an event or you would like to help now and again, let us know.
