Welcome to the Beths Parents’ Association (PA) web page.
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, piano and keyboards for the Music department, ipads and funding for props and scenery for the Art department.
Who we are:
Chair – Vacant to be filled 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.
Our meetings: We meet monthly (during term time) to discuss fundraising activities and requests from the school. Meetings are always held in the school and start at either 19.00 or 19.30, usually finishing around 21.15. Here are the meeting dates until Christmas:
Tuesday 17th September @ 19.30 in Room P3
Tuesday 8th October @ 19.00 in Room P3: this is our AGM
Tuesday 12th November @ 19.00 in the Conference Room
Tuesday 10th December @ 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. Please 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 email@example.com
