- September 13, 2022
As one event ends another is being organised, well, four to be precise…..
The start of the academic year is always a busy time for the Parents Association as we host our annual new parent supper events for the Prep and Senior Schools and hold our AGM.
On the 18th September we will also be having our first Nearly New Uniform Sale for 2022, please do contact us if you can help at the event (you will get first dibs on the uniform!).
We are very excited to announce that on the 24th September we will be hosting an 80’s Night in celebration of the Boys’ Prep School’s 35th Anniversary! Whilst tickets will be limited, both the Boys’ and the Girls’ Prep School parents are invited to help make it a night to remember. Please keep an eye out for the link to purchase tickets in the weekly Friday email from MIS and from your class reps.
Thank you so much to everyone who came along to our camping weekend and who helped make it such a fantastic weekend.
A big shout out and huge thanks to the team behind all of the organisation, the Lead volunteers and all the parents that had volunteer roles during the weekend. The weekend wouldn’t have gone ahead without you; THANK YOU!
Thank you to all who came to the SHSPA “Whodunnit?” Quiz Night in March for an evening of fun and entertainment, delicious cheese and wine, as well as some mind-bending questions from our expert quiz master. The event raised an impressive £2,600 towards wish list items for our schools.
The SHSPA is now busy preparing for the next big event – Prep Schools Camping – to be held on Saturday 18th June. Tickets will go on sale early this term so please keep your eyes peeled for the details.
The funds that are raised at PA events are used to provide luxury (non-infrastructure) items and experiences that enhance the pupil experience. Everybody is invited to submit suggestions for ‘Wishlist’ items which are presented to the Parents’ Association Committee and voted upon. To ensure spend is allocated fairly, we apply the following broad criteria, summarised by the acronym YEARNS detailed below. So if you have a great idea then we’d love to hear from you at firstname.lastname@example.org
Take a look here for details of wishlist items funded previously.
Our NNUS event was a great success! It took place on Sunday 3rd October at Hinchley Wood Sports Ground and raised funds which will go towards wish list items for the schools.
Thank you to all our parents who made much-needed donations of old uniform.
Watch this space for the next NNUS event. We always need volunteers to help out so if you can spare a few hours for the next sale, don’t forget to email email@example.com
