SHSPA Funds Raised, Money Spent

A happy by-product of events and activities organised by the PA are the funds that are raised.

These funds are spent on added extra items to enrich pupils experiences in each of the three schools.

‘Wishlist’ items are brought to the PA by the teachers, by parents and also by the children themselves. Ideas on how to use our funds wisely are very much appreciated so please do get in touch with your thoughts here.
