Parents’ and Friends’ Association
Welcome to the Coopers Coborn Parents & Friends Association page. The PFA is a friendly group of parents who raise funds for the school.
We fund purchases right across the departments – recent examples include minibuses, food tech equipment, high tech science equipment, refurbishment of the gym, gymnastics vault, sprinting hurdles, learning aids for the mathematics classrooms, lighting equipment for the school theatre, iPads and furnishing for the SEN department, printing equipment for the art department, board games for lunchtime clubs, all-weather seating and canopy for lunchtimes and much more.
It is important that the PFA has enough support from parents to keep going strong and to keep making money for the school. See below for some of our fundraising activities. You can be part of it – it’s so easy and students benefit across all years and departments. We are always looking for parents to join the PFA, please feel free to come along to our monthly meetings which are held in the school canteen.
Please follow us on Facebook and Instagram for all our latest information.
Adventure Island Tickets
We sell discounted tickets to Adventure Island in Southend. Please contact us for further details and to arrange collection. Payment may be made via the school shop and we also accept cash.
Every Easter and Christmas we organise a Grand Draw with great cash prizes.
The easyfundraising portal is such an easy way to raise funds for the school whenever you are shopping online. You simply sign up at www.easyfundraising.org.uk, then whenever you shop online go into this site first – it will transfer you to the site you are shopping from and we get a small donation from each purchase. You can shop at many retailers, for example Amazon, M&S, John Lewis, eBay, and hundreds of others both big and small.
By making a one-time change to your Amazon account, you can arrange for 0.5% of all your purchases to be donated to the Coopers’ Coborn Parents’ Association. In order to sign up, simply click on smile.amazon.co.uk, and choose Coopers Coborn Parents Association as your nominated charity. It’s that simple!
