VRSA & EASYFUNDRAISING
The Villa Real School Association (VRSA) is a school association made up of parents and school staff. It holds the charitable status for the school and holds fundraising activities throughout the year. The association meets each half term for general get together, a cuppa and a chat and to discuss fund raising. Parents can also ask each other for help or suggest tips and advice which may be of use to other parents. They also meet each term to organise the summer and Christmas fair and the parent involvement in the Easter Assembly.
