The Parents and Friends Association at Gidea Park College (PFA) is a fund raising and social society which does not play a role in the day to day running of the school. Representatives do however act as a forum for other parents bringing items for discussion at the regular meetings. It provides funding for many additional activities and equipment that can be enjoyed by all the children in the school. Recently the children have enjoyed a Science Outreach day, Inflatables Afternoon and trips to Chessington World of Adventure. The emphasis if the PFA is to add optional extras that all the children may enjoy. The Annual General Meeting is in October when a new committee is elected. All parents are welcome to attend the meetings, even if they do not have a formal role and help with the fundraising events.
