Sponne School PFA
Sponne School PFA exists to raise funds for the school to purchase items for the direct benefit of students. The Committee is made up of a mix of parents and school staff which helps to ensure good communication between fund raising activities and funding requests. The School Council are also involved in helping decide what the students need in terms of projects and equipment. It’s a great way of getting more involved in school life and getting to know people!
