Our objectives:

The Parents Association aims to raise funds to enhance the facilities for current and future students. At the same time, it enables parents to socialise through the school events that it organises throughout the year. During the school year you will receive updates from the Parents Association via our social media platforms. Also keep an eye out for our page on the school website Beths Grammar School Parents Association and in the school blog (weekly VIP newsletter).

Thank you to all families who are generously supporting our fundraising activities.

We are looking forward to welcoming new parents! To help us prepare next academic year, why not get involved and raise much needed funds to improve our children’s educational opportunities? Come and meet us at the coming fundraising events. We have our annual meeting in October when new members can join to serve on the PA. Please bear that in mind. It will be on 11th October 2022 at 7pm.

Our virtual PA meeting will be on Tuesday 13th September 2022 at 7.30pm
