The PTA plays a vital role in the school community and all parents and carers are automatically members. The PTA is primarily about raising funds to provide facilities and equipment which support the school and advance the education of all pupils, but through our fundraising activities we develop good relationships, and friendships, between parents and staff, and also have a lot of fun!
Annual PTA Wine Tasting Evening (Friday 21 September, 7.30-10.30pm, Dining Room)
All parents are invited to the PTA’s first event of the school year - the wine tasting quiz.
All offers of raffle prizes gratefully received.
Everyone is welcome to a night of fine wine, and fabulous company with a prize for the most discerning palate!
AGM (Wednesday 26 September, 7pm, Dining Room)
One of the main purposes of the AGM is for parents to elect the PTA Committee for the forthcoming year. Our school has grown substantially in recent years and to reflect this we are asking more parents to step forward to elected roles. The main roles and their core purpose are:
• Chair – provide leadership, make all members welcome, set the agenda and ensure the committee fulfils it’s role.
• Secretary – Organise meetings, take minutes and distribute, keep accurate records.
• Treasurer – Manage accounts and financial records.
• Communication – maintaining and developing website, social media and publicity.
In addition to these elected committee members, we need 8 elected ordinary members, as School Reps. These should be 2 from Pre prep, 2 from Prep, 2 from Years 7-9 and 2 from Years 10-13. The roles will include organising school relevant events (such as discos), engaging with parent volunteers and relevant staff.
The Expressive Arts Faculty are delighted to announce that this year's secondary phase musical will be 'The Wedding Singer’.
Performances will take place on Thursday 24 and Friday 25 January at 7.00pm in the MV Theatre - remember to put the dates in your diary!
For any pupil in Year 7-13 who would like to take part in this year's production, auditions are taking place on Wednesday 12 September at lunchtime in Beechlands and after school in MV Theatre. Audition packs can be collected from House Administrators.
