The Glasgow Academy Milngavie is a small school but Community Association events are always well attended by parents, pupils, grandparents, friends of the school and members of the local community. Money is raised both to enhance the extra-curricular activities and for charity.
In the past few years the Community Association has purchased staging, Flip cameras, gardening equipment and benches for the playground area. The committee also raises funds for our school charities.
Our school makes good use of Community Association members' expertise to take forward initiatives. We have Community Association parent representatives with backgrounds in marketing, sales, finance, media and technology.
Members of the Community Association run the school's Healthy Tuck Shop and are always around the school to help with catering and organising events.
The Glasgow Academy Milngavie Community Association runs a subscription system where parents pay a small amount on a yearly basis. This money is used to buy the pupils presents at Christmas time and to provide refreshments for seasonal children's parties, for example.
Each year group has a Community Association representative who will introduce themselves to new parents and support the families with information about our school and the community.
