Unfortunately we are unable to host out annual Christmas tree sale this year. We have however teamed up with www.christmasonthehill.co.uk .
They will donate to APS every time a tree or wreathe is purchased using the code APS20 on their website.
All trees and wreaths would be delivered directly to the address of the person who placed the order, whilst maintaining the appropriate Covid-19 safety measures.
Please support if you are able to.
This year, do your Christmas shopping, raise money for Alexandra Park School and support local businesses from the comfort of your own home. We’ve partnered with Gifted Local to donate 10% from every purchase made by our community to the school. Gifted Local is an online market place connecting local businesses with customers who want to shop local. With Covid making fundraising increasingly challenging, this is a great initiative to raise money for the school.
Gifted Local is the perfect solution for seasonal shopping. Packed full of unique homeware, stocking fillers and thoughtful gifts for your nearest and dearest, all products are made locally to you and delivered straight to your door by small creative businesses who need your support now more than ever. And to get into the Christmas spirit, you can find the following on Gifted Local’s website
- Downloadable cut out and colour in kid’s Christmas decorations to keep your small people busy while you browse
- A spicy mulled wine recipe and Christmas playlist to get you in the mood while you shop
- And a ‘Win a Christmas Hamper’ competition worth over £250 full of Gifted Local goodies.
To get shopping, go to www.giftedlocal.com and use APS10 from Friday 27 November until Sunday 6 December.
What is the Alexandra Park School Association? (APSA)
The Alexandra Park School Association represents all parents/carers in the school and all parents/carers and staff are automatic members of APSA.
We are a registered charity (No. 1093561) and have a constitution, which you can view here.
APSA is run by a small committee of parents/carers drawn from across the school. We always welcome new volunteers, who can join committees or help volunteer to make individual events successful for the school community.
In the school year 2020-21 we are moving fundraising and events on line.

Tickets4Schools is an established and successful fund-raising scheme designed to raise much needed monies for schools and their PTA's.
Theatre and event tickets are sold directly to parents and staff of the school at a discounted price but inclusive of a mandatory donation (usually £5.00 per ticket) to the school. The more tickets sold via the school, the more money is raised. It's as simple as that!
