Where funds go
If raising money is one of the most rewarding roles of the CSPA, then deciding where to spend it is definitely among the most satisfying.
We take our lead from School staff who suggest where funds can be best spent and we support a huge variety of projects. These range from workshops, competitions and prizes to classroom materials or equipment, guest speakers and visiting artists. Some of the more substantial initiatives we have supported include sound systems and gym refits.
Our aim is to help all departments go that extra mile by providing extras they would be unable to fund from their own budgets.
The lists below illustrate the scale of the CSPA’s funding achievements over the last few years.
