Hello and welcome to the new school year. I hope everyone had a great summer and is fully refreshed for the year ahead.
The first PA meeting/AGM took place on Tuesday 12th September 2017. I would like to thank all the parents who attended and look forward to them joining us again in October for our Year 7 Welcome Evening/ Race Night.
I have taken the decision to stand down as Chairperson after 4 years in the position, although I will continue to play an active role in the PA over the coming year. I am pleased to announce that Alan Akinkunle was appointed as my replacement, Funmi Onuoha was appointed Vice Chairperson, Lisette Camilie-Fletcher was appointed Treasurer, Samantha Warke was re-appointed Secretary and Tim Bermingham-Shaw was re-appointed as 100 club administrator.
There are many ways in which parents can help. The following are events already planned between now and Christmas. Please put the dates in your diaries, reminders will appear in Contact over the coming weeks.
ST CATHERINE’S CHRISTMAS FAYRE - SATURDAY 25TH NOVEMBER 2017
Our annual Christmas Fayre is always a popular event and it is a chance to pick up some early Christmas presents at excellent prices. Volunteers are always welcome on this day, so if you can spare a few hours, please let me know. Do you know anyone that would like to have a stall at our fair? If so, we do have tables available at £20 each, please contact me for further information.
PA 100 CLUB
Finally, the PA have been running a very successful “100 Club” for a number of years and now is your chance to be part of it! Now is the time to JOIN or RENEW, as a reminder, prizes are £50 per month and £100 at Christmas and Easter. Joining forms will be available at reception and at our PA meetings and events. Please note, the first two draws for this year will take place at the Welcome evening on Friday 13th October 2017, so please ensure your form is returned prior to that date.
