Meet your PA: Karen Saul – SHS Second Hand Uniform Sales

NAME: Karen Saul

PA ROLE: SHS Second Hand Uniform Sales

WHAT DOES YOUR ROLE INVOLVE: Collecting, sorting and selling uniform from Prep & Senior school; calculating and paying commission!

CHILDREN IN (school and year): Daughter in Year 8.

WHY YOU JOINED THE PA:  If you want Summer and Christmas fairs, second hand uniform sales, quiz nights and such, then someone has to volunteer to help run them, or they won’t happen. I joined the PA to ensure these types of events can be put on during my daughter’s time at Surbiton, for the girls and for the parents.

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN INVOLVED WITH THE PA: Still in my first year.

YOUR FAVOURITE PA EVENT AND WHY: I am actually quite fond of a good fair, whether it be Christmas or summer, however the Quiz night was also great fun last year!

Meet Your PA: Dave Tresidder – Web Site and Dads Camping Rep

NAME: Dave Tresidder

PA ROLE: Web Site and Dads Camping Repdt

WHAT DOES YOUR ROLE INVOLVE: Bit of a mixed bag. Firstly I ensure the PA web site is up to date and encourage new content to ensure the site is a useful resource for all parents. Sometimes I’m out of my depth in IT issues and then I spend my time trying to get someone to help. Dads camping is a large annual event for the PA and I am wing man to Chris James helping keep the event the huge success if has been for so many years.

CHILDREN IN (school and year): Daughter in Year 2.

WHY YOU JOINED THE PA: I’m not one to sit back and let others do the work then complain when thigs aren’t the way I would have done them. To make a difference and really become part of the school community, I think you have to step up and offer something back.

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN INVOLVED WITH THE PA: Still in my first year.

That’s easy, Dads Camping I suspect is the highlight of a lot of the prep school Dads. It’s such a great opportunity for the kids to let their hair down and spend some quality time with their Dads enjoying the fantastic grounds at Hinchley Wood.
