2017 ARAP is a wrap!

Hi all.

Thank you to everyone who joined us last night for the Group's ARAP (Our AGM).

We had one of the biggest turnouts in recent years with over 15 in attendance.

I am also pleased to advise the results of the Parent's Committee elections held at the ARAP.  Here are the names of your Committee Members for 2017-2018:
  • Group Leader - Connie Tuddenham
  • Group President - Paul Ferrari
  • Group Treasurer - Liz Murray
  • Group Secretary - Claire Coulson
  • Group Quartermaster - Andrew Murray (aka 'Q')
  • Group General Committee Members - Gina Kenah and Leila Byrne
The committee is the strongest it has been in many years, and going by the attendance and involvement at the ARAP by a number of parents, our Group is in great hands for the foreseeable future.

The annual presentation pack has been uploaded onto our Facebook Page for all to see.

Kind regards

Paul
