CASCA - Camden School's Community Association

     

    CASCA stands for Camden School's Community Association. It is the school's parent and community association and has two main objectives:

    1. Organising social events to build and support the Camden School for Girls community.
    2. Fundraising to enable the school to continue to offer outstanding education despite funding cuts.

    Our main events are the Jumble Sale, Book Fair, Quiz Night, Fun Run and Summer Fest. We also organise Parents' Forums to discuss issues such as how to prepare for exams etc.

    We had a very successful year and raised a record £40,000 for the school. Much of it went to support better IT system and infrastructure, our fundraising priority for 2015/16.

    Several departments such as Art, History, Geography and Theology also benefitted. Many thanks to everyone who contributed by coming along to and/or volunteering at our parent-led events.

    This year we are raising funds for a range of items needed urgently by the school, including refurbishing the library, better arts and drama productions and equipment for PE – and a new focus to support renovation of the school.

    We’ve set ourselves an ambitious goal to raise £50,000.CASCA is run entirely by volunteers and needs parents to join in and help: we need leaders, participants, ideas, and energy! If you are willing to participate, please contact us on casca@csg.school.
