Wanted….Year 7 Parent Representatives

As a new initiative this year we are looking for Parent Reps for each House in Year 7. We have some exciting events planned for the Autumn term specifically to help Year 7 boys and parents have opportunities to meet and get to know each other. We thought some of you may like to get involved in the planning of these alongside existing parents from the PTA and members of staff.

Our first event is a Year 7 Boys and Parents quiz which will take place on 13th October. It’s always a brilliant event and a great way for you to meet your son’s new friends. You can help by getting a team together and/or helping on the night: those bottles of Prosecco won’t open themselves!

On 1st December there will be a Year 7 Winter Fair: each House will be challenged to run a stall/activity and sell raffle tickets. There will be prizes for the most money raised, innovative idea etc. We will need the Parent Reps to support their son’s House in planning their idea and run their stall. All funds will go to buy items for the school, eg …. Items for the ECCO clubs, Bamboo bikes, outdoor seating, sports kit.

This need not be a role that only one parent per class takes on, there may be a group of you who would like to work together. We know some of you have already set up facebook groups for the year so why not one per House? Please do see the PTA stall at Freshers Fair or make yourself known to me on the evening.

Thanks in advance for your help Miss Nelson.
