Annesley Parents’ Association
Hello and a warm welcome to the 2020 school year from the Annesley Parents’ Association (APA)!
The APA AGM took place on Monday, which was a great opportunity to acknowledge the hard work of all the volunteers over 2019. We are very fortunate that Anna and Socorro have been re-elected to their positions as vice president and treasurer respectively, and they are a great asset to the APA. Karl holds the secretary position and we are so excited to have him on board as a new member of the team. With Bek stepping down as president after a successful year of dedication and hard work which saw new events introduced to the APA repertoire, I am fortunate to have been given the opportunity to fill this role.
I am now going into my sixth year of being involved in the APA. I realise how lucky I have been to grow as a school parent with a kind, fun and diversely talented group of people, whose wisdom and guidance has crossed so many facets of parenting, including how to sneak veggies into a spaghetti sauce, how to make an awesome lasagne, to tips on sleeping and the world of Costco. I can think of many a meeting for which I have arrived late after having had one of ‘those’ mornings with the kids, being met with a smile and reassurance. It is easy to forget that school is also a learning curve for us parents and caregivers and an understanding and supportive community can make that curve feel much more manageable and help us to grow together. We hope this year we can help support and continue to build our school community. If you are keen to be involved in the APA in any capacity, please feel free to join us. Our next meeting will be held in the Imaginarium at 800am March 17th. If you have any questions please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
