Greenway School Association
The Greenway School Association (GSA) is a charitable organisation to which all parents and guardians of children at the school automatically belong. It is run by a committee of parents and staff in their free time and the ultimate aim of the GSA is to enrich and enliven the education of the children by enhancing the environment and facilities within the school.
Over the years the GSA has raised funds by running events at the school – from Christmas and Summer fairs to cake sales, indulgence evenings, a barn dance and quiz nights. Fun events for children have included film nights and school discos. ‘Camping at Greenway’ has been run after our Summer Fair in the last few years and has proved to be very successful!
Getting involved is a great way to meet other parents and you don’t have to become a committee member to be involved. The GSA is always on the lookout for volunteers who are willing to help out at our events: even if you can only give a little time, it is always appreciated. Every class has a GSA class representative and keeps parents/carers informed of events and enlists helpers from willing volunteers when necessary!
The GSA supports areas of the National Curriculum in school with initiatives such as Maths, Arts, Science and Book Week. Over the years there have been major fundraising events that have raised funds for the Adventure trail, an enormous £40,000 towards the library, £15,000 for our double glazed windows and blinds, school i Pads, staging, cameras and annual theatre productions. The GSA also sponsors the Dacorum Card Scheme for parents on a low income.
