St Ambrose Parents' Assoc




 Saint Ambrose Parents’ Association (SAPA)


What does SAPA do?

SAPA’s aim is to raise funds for Saint Ambrose College and Saint Ambrose Preparatory School. All the funds we raise go directly to support the boys in their academic, spiritual and physical education. We raise funds in a number of ways – fun events, donations, lotteries and second-hand uniform sales. For more information about our activities, please visit our fundraising page.

Since SAPA started in 1947, it has raised over £1 million. SAPA has helped to pay for musical instruments, minibuses, a portable PA system, flooring for the College gym so that it can be used for exams and functions, cricket nets, play equipment for the Prep playgrounds, trim trails and raised garden beds for the Prep, and the new swimming pool in the College.

 To plan our events and fundraising, we meet on the second Monday of every month in the College at 7pm, just for an hour. We also hold an annual general meeting in June. Please come along and share your ideas.

 Who is SAPA?
