St Bernadette’s Parents Association are a group of parents, carers and teachers who work together to provide extra educational and fun opportunities for all the pupils at our school.
We organise a vast programme of fundraising events each year, which include an International evening, the children’s Christmas Shop, the May Fair and our much loved Pamper Evenings. The proceeds from these events are used by the school to fund purchases that would not otherwise be possible. We contribute towards big projects such as the trim trail and the beautiful waterfall in reception, as well as other smaller items that really enrich the children's learning. We also run ‘coffee mornings’ every Wednesday where parents can grab a coffee after dropping off the children, meet other parents while the little ones can play on the soft play equipment.
Due to our very busy calendar we meet every half term and we are always delighted to welcome new faces. It’s a great way to get to know other parents and teachers, as well as knowing that you have made a difference to the life of St Bernadette’s School.
We would like to thank everyone for their continual support of all of our fundraising events. We hope that you and your family enjoy the events and will continue to support them by offering donations, helping out or simply by turning up to take part!
International Festival – come and celebrate your culture. Bring along a traditional dish to share with everyone and walk through the continents experiencing different customs, traditions and food!!!
Christmas Shop – come along and be a shopkeeper for the day! Help the children buy their special presents for their mums and dads. It’s a lovely way to spend the day during the festive period and the children love it.
Christmas Concerts – are you a whizz on the video camera? We video the children’s concerts so you can treasure the memories but we need people to help video them, it’s really simple and you don’t have to be ‘Steven Spielberg’!!
Christmas Discos – come and join in with the madness! We need people to help supervise and provide drinks and snacks for the children.
2nd hand uniform sales - hold on to any good quality uniform and PE kit as your child outgrows them and donate them to the school ready for a sale. Come along to the sale and pick up a uniform at bargain prices.
May Fair - donate something for one of our stalls, come and help your child’s class run a stall or activity. Remember the class that has put in the most effort wins a cash prize for them to spend on whatever they want! Just come along and enjoy the day.
