High School For Girls

Believe, Achieve, Thrive

Fundraising

Year 7 and 8 Disco - Friday 7 December 2018 

During the winter months, the PTA for both Sir Thomas Rich’s and the High School for Girls run discos for the Year 7 and 8 students.  This is a great way of raising funds for the PTA and is enjoyed by all students. During the disco, we sell soft drinks, sweets and party items such as glow sticks. We are also looking at running a club night for the older students.  This will involve the hiring of a night club where only soft drinks will be sold and officially registered bouncers and staff will be present.  The night club also ensures that no alcohol is bought onto their premises and any advertising for alcohol, gambling or smoking is removed.   
The PTA are always looking for helpers for the discos, so if you can help then please click on this link to register when you can help.  Many thanks.

Summer Fun Day 2018
 

The whole day was a great success and a real team effort.

Initial figures  show that we raised:

£1267 on the raffle, £144 more than last year! and £1440 from the Fun Day, £350 more than last year!

This is a fantastic result and was very much a team effort - we appreciate the donations from families and supporters, the time given up by parents, students, teachers and the PTA volunteers, not forgetting the school caretakers, Chris and John,  who helped so much in the preparations. 

So a big thank you to everyone who helped in anyway large or small.

We hope everyone enjoyed the day and we look forward to next year.
