The Parents' Association for Bancroft's School is a well established element of school life. The broad aim of the Association is to enhance the already outstanding environment of the School. The Association runs various events during the school year to provide funds, which we then distribute by way of equipment, events and provisions which complement the activities of the School. The PA AGM was held on 6 October. Jo Hughes was voted in as the new Secretary and Hulya Muzammal becomes the new Treasurer. Deepti Arora and David Hough remain in office as Chair and Vice Chair respectively.
The PA publishes its own newsletter, which is sent to all parents via e-mail and can be downloaded from this page. We hope that this will become a regular way of keeping everyone updated on what's going on.
The money raised at the Christmas Fayre (£4,000) and at the Burns Supper (£3,500) means that the PA reached its fundraising target of £7,500 for a makeover of the Prep School library. The PA looks forward to consulting with the School about the best way that money raised at more recent events can be spent to benefit the pupils. The PA Great Gatsby Summer Ball, the Quiz Night and the Bollywood Night were all extremely successful fundraisers raising £7,400, £860 and £5,000 respectively. Thank you so much to everyone who supported these events. Recent PA purchases have also included sponsorship of two of the four new mini buses acquired by the School, a bass guitar, a bass amp, an electric guitar, a guitar amp and a drum kit for the Senior School and new Gazebos for use at Sports Day any other events.
The next main event to look forward to in the PA calendar is the Christmas Fayre on Saturday 5 December (in the Prep School Hall).
