Parent-led Clubs at Dickens - Application for Funding

On Friday, October 7 we explained how to create and lead a Club at Dickens. 

The link to Apply for Funding for Clubs at Dickens is now live:  


Successful clubs at Dickens, e.g. Chess Club, Ultimate Frisbee etc have worked best in collaboration with the entire school team. Before you apply for PAC funding:

1) Discuss the club and its timing/logistics with Anna Maria Niccoli-Mullett/Nik Chiu (Main School) or Erin Gibbs (Annex). 

2) Plan to attend a Staff Committee Meeting to share the goals and benefits of the club, and have your space secured with the appropriate teacher(s). 

3) Once you have received the go-ahead from the School Administrators, you can apply for funds you may need for your club. Even if you don’t start your activity until 2017, you will still need to apply by the October 31 deadline.


To apply for PAC funding for your Club for the 2016-17 school year, please read and review our FAQ document, and complete the online form at the link below no later than Monday, October 31.
