PA allocates funds worth £6,500 to various departments

All money is raised at events we run or support with refreshments or by selling raffle tickets and this goes towards items and events that will support the students’ learning.  As you will have seen from the Gazette in the past weeks, we have allocated a total of £1,500 across various departments as follows:

Drama:                                     £400 for a portable sound system, a make-up head and a glass cabinet to store valuable masks

Food Technology:             £400 for various kitchen items and utensils

PE:                                              £200 for a new blue tooth speaker

G & P:                                        £120 towards magazine subscriptions

Maths: £180 for white boards for every teacher

Various departments including Humanities, Science, Maths, English and Languages: £200 for badges for the “Education
Perfect” competitions.

Thank you to everybody who supports our work! Either by being a truly valuable part of the Parents’ Association and giving up your time to support our fundraising efforts in which ever way you can and also by attending and supporting our events and by buying raffle tickets and refreshments. 

After the Easter holidays, another busy term is approaching with open days, induction days for the new year 7s and 6th form, various concerts, disco and movie nights, Big Band & BBQ and other events. This is when we can always do with extra help. Please look in the Gazette and also on our Facebook page ‘Southend High School for Girls Parents’ Association’ and our Twitter page @shsgpa for information and contact us  on shsgpasecretary@gmail.com if you can help in any way. We really appreciate your support.

The more money we can raise in the upcoming term, the more we can put towards the next Wish List! This just leaves me to wish you all a Happy Easter and a wonderful break.
