Welcome to Grange Park Primary School Association. GPPSA is the official PTA and fundraising arm of the school.
What is the GPPSA?
Grange Park Primary School Association (GPPSA) is a registered charity and exists to provide a partnership between home and school. Its function is to bring parents, families, friends, staff and the local community together socially in support of the school. ALL families are automatically members of the GPPSA while their child is enrolled.
What does the GPPSA do?
The GPPSA offers the school a variety of social events to build community and raise funds. Large
events such as our Summer and Christmas Fayres, to simple yet effective cakes sales, Bag2School collections, discos and many more. We use our network of reps and class helpers to help spread the word, organise and help at all our events. For new parents please see our new starter letter.
