The Associates of Chase Lane (ACL) are the parents and teachers fundraising committee for Chase Lane Primary School and Nursery. We raise funds for the benefit of the children at the school through a variety of events, giving children, their families and friends the opportunity to become more involved in the school community.
We organise fun social events, such as a Summer Fete, Christmas Bazaar and quiz nights. We always welcome the help and support of parents or carers in any way that you can. This may be as a helper at an event, or sponsorship by your company or business, or donation of prizes for our raffles.
All profits made are put to great use within the school and help pay for projects. We support the School Council and offer financial help for school trips, such as the Houses of Parliament.
Finally, we work closely with local community projects, for example, the Harwich Food Bank and local charities like the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) raising money to support them.
Children enjoyed visiting Santa in his North Pole Grotto. The Year 2 igloo (made from old milk bottles) helped set the arctic scene. Thank you to the ACL helpers for organising the event and for spending the day accompanying children to Santa.
ACL Christmas Foodbank Collection 2017
Pupils and parents very kindly donated food and winter clothes to the Harwich Foodbank. Volunteers at the Foodbank, attended Chase Lane’s morning assembly and talked to children about how donations help people in need, living in the local area. The children and staff looked very colourful in their Christmas attire.
Sponsored Fun Run
Well done to all the children who took part in our sponsored Fun Run on 29th September 2017. We were all very impressed with the children’s efforts. Many thanks to members of the ACL, staff and volunteers who supported the event; it was a great success. So far, we have raised £2300, which will go towards improvements to the swimming pool.
We are always looking for new members and parents that are willing to give up a small amount of time to help out at our events. If you can help, or have anything else you'd like to get in touch about, please drop us a line using the form below.
