You may be aware that Beth Corcoran and Louise Bye have recently stood down from their central roles within the PA. Although they will no longer be in the key positions, they have assured that they are happy to support the various PA initiatives throughout this academic year. I would like to take this opportunity to thank them for all their hard work and dedication to the PA over the past two years – it is deeply appreciated.
Kate Kenny and Carly Williams have agreed to share the chairing role between them for the remainder of this academic year, and Sarah Moore has been elected as Vice-Chair. A whole host of events have been planned throughout the year – some of which will be familiar to parents and some of which are new ideas. Please remember that all parents are part of the PA and I encourage you all to support the organisation in any way that you can. In a time when all schools face financial pressure on budgets, we welcome the additional finances that the PA brings to the school, as well as the opportunities for our community to socialise together. The PA are currently raising funds to replace the school stage, as well as honouring their annual commitment to provide £1,000 towards new library stock. We are most grateful for this support.
