The Desmond Anderson Friends Network (DAFN)

Every parent and carer is automatically a member of the Friends' Network. There are a small group of friendly and very welcoming parents who co-ordinate various events and fundraisers and are always keen to hear from anyone who would and could lend a hand. All money raised goes to provide fantastic resources and experiences for your children. Pop in to the office to find out how you can get involved.

Our mission

The Desmond Anderson Friends' Network (DAFN) will aim to work on behalf of the school community to:



Have fun!




Raise funds

... to enhance the many learning opportunities which our children benefit from, and work with the school to utilise these funds.


Provide opportunities

... for parents to meet and socialise




Ensure parents are able to play a part in their school community
