We exist to provide much-needed support to the school by helping out at Parent-Teacher consultation evenings, concerts and drama productions.
But there is more to us than simply serving tea and coffee. We play an invaluable role in organising and running fundraising events throughout each year to provide the school with additional funds to enrich school life for our students.
Discos, quiz nights, murder mystery nights, raffles, Christmas draws and summer fayres have all helped contribute towards the school’s fleet of six minibuses, equipment for the drama and music departments and stage and lighting gear – not to mention a washing machine for all the dirty kit the school’s many sports teams produce.
We know that people lead busy lives but welcome everyone willing to help, even if it is only for a couple of nights over the whole year. We even have a few members whose children have long left the school. We don’t ask you to sign your life away so you can be as involved as you choose.
One of the great benefits to our members is the greater access they get to the school staff and teachers. Now there’s no special treatment but by regularly helping out, many of our members have got to know some of the staff really well, including ones they would never have met otherwise. It really does provide a different insight to the work that teachers, staff and pupils do everyday.
So if you’re thinking that you’d like to get involved or want more information complete the Call Me form and one of the Committee will give you a call. Anyone is welcome to any of our regular monthly meetings. They normally start at 7.30pm but check the Upcoming Events page for details.
