Welcome to the Beths Parents’ Association (PA)
What we do: The PA is here to help fund facilities and equipment for your children that the school budget is unable to provide. We raise funds through various activities such as Quiz Nights, selling refreshments at Parents’ evenings and concerts, Christmas and Summer raffles, monthly draw and own clothes day. On average we raise £8,000 to £10,000 a year.
We have used these funds to buy equipment and bicycles for the Year 8 Camp, supply gym equipment, books for the Learning Resource Centre, timpani and various other instruments for the Music department and I-pads for the Art department.
Who we are:
Chair – Vacant Vice chair (and acting Chair): Trudie Nichols
Treasurer: Andrew Sealey Vice Treasurer: Oluwasanmi Obafaiye
Secretary: Anne Wright
Our annual general meeting (AGM) is held in October each year and we will be looking to fill our vacant Chair position by October 2019.
Our meetings: We meet monthly (during term time) to discuss fundraising activities and requests from the school. Meetings are always held in the school (usually the Conference Room) and start at 19.30 usually finishing around 21.15. Here are the meeting dates for the first half of the school year:
Tuesday 11 December @ 19.30 in the Conference Room
Tuesday 8 January @ 19.30 in the Conference Room
Tuesday 12 February @ 19.30 in P3
Tuesday 12 March @ 19.30 in the Conference Room
Tuesday 7 May @ 19.30 in the Conference Room
Tuesday 11 June @ 19.30 in P3
Tuesday 9 July @ 19.30 in the Conference Room
We need your help: the PA cannot function without the help of parents and carers. So if you can spare some time to help serve refreshments or in any other way please let us know. We are a friendly bunch so why not come along and join us, and we promise you can be as involved (or not!) as you like.
If you need any further information or just want to find out more please contact us by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org

Our upcoming events: Christmas raffle will be drawn in school on the last day of term. Every student had an envelope with some raffle tickets inside, so you should have received your tickets by now. Will you be one of our lucky winners?
