Spring Fair 2017

 A record-breaking Spring Fair on 11th March generated a staggering profit figure of £13,000.

 As a result, we were able to fulfil our main objective of supporting the I.T department with a £10,000 cheque for a much-needed Server Upgrade.

 Thank you to everyone who bought raffle tickets for the draw that yielded a total of £6400!  Of course, this would not have been possible without the generosity of our prize donors.

 Thank You Becka Orum and Anne Casey for galvanising Year7s and 8s who packed out the hall with 32 innovative, colourful, and exciting stalls. These created an astounding energy and spirit which flowed throughout the Fair and also raised £1,400 (last year's total was £614!!!). Thank you Heads of Year for helping them and to every parent involved.

Thank You to those who donated and bought secondhand uniform (which took £533 on the day). 

Thank You to the IT department who set up a seriously cool retro games arcade on the stage.

To every cake baker and decorator (Cakes alone raised £414), every volunteer who spent hours setting up on Friday, every table mover, to every stall holder, every staff member who supported us all, to the tidy-uppers, to every money counter, every generous person who donated items for the stalls: Thank You.

 To those who took up the invitation to sponsor a stall and to those who decided to give personal donations: Thank You.

 And finally: Thank You to every person who took the time to come and celebrate the start of Spring, Pate's style.

 We cracked it!

 Our best wishes to you all.

Welcome from the PA Committee

PPA logoWelcome to all Pate’s parents from the Parents’ Association (PA) Committee.

The committee is a team of parents such as yourselves elected to keep the PA on the move. 

By the very fact that you are a Pate’s parent you are already a member of the PA, a registered charity. A copy of our registration certificate can be viewed here.

Our aim is to do what we can to advance the education of our children by providing and assisting in the provision of facilities for education at the School – this means lots of fundraising which in turn needs lots of volunteers and support.

Our aim is to keep you informed of our fundraising activities and to make it is easy as possible for you to volunteer to help at school events. 

Always feel free to email us with ideas, suggestions, offers and thoughts.
