PTA Events for your diaries

On behalf of the PTA I hope you all had an enjoyable Summer and that all our students are settling in well after the long break. This is one of the PTA’s busiest terms with lots of activities to participate in and/or support over the next few months. The main events coming up are:

PTA Uniform Sale These sales are generally held on the first Saturday of every month during term time in the school dining hall. The next sale will be tomorrow – Saturday 9th September from 10.30-11.30 am. If you’ve had a clear out over the summer and have any items you are able to donate, please drop these off at reception. If your son has had a growth spurt come along and stock up on shirts, trousers and sportswear.

Open Morning – Saturday 30th September. There are a couple of ways you can help with this event. We serve refreshments to visitors and Year 7 helpers, so if you can spare an hour or two to help on the Saturday morning between 8am and 12.30pm please email [email protected]

If you are able to donate a cake, muffins, cupcakes, donuts or cookies then please leave in school reception on Friday 29th or in the dining hall on Saturday morning.

Year 7 Quiz Night – Friday 13th October. We are planning a quiz night for Year 7 parents and boys – a great way to get to know other parents and students who have recently joined the school. Information and an application form will be circulated to year 7 parents by ParentMail, but if you have any questions in the meantime or are able to help on the night, please contact [email protected]

Glitter Ball – Saturday 11th November. The Ball is our main fundraiser and has sold out over the last couple of years, so if you would like to attend please do apply early! Information and an application form are attached with this newsletter. We always need lots of support with this event, so if you are able to provide corporate fund matching, contribute products or services as raffle/auction prizes, or help set up on Friday 10th and Saturday 11th November please contact me at [email protected]

Finally if you would like to get involved in the PTA, we would love to meet you at the next meeting in the Bradshaw Building on Wednesday 20th September at 7.15 for 7.30pm. If you are planning to come along, or would like to find out more please contact me at [email protected]
