Welcome to all Pate’s parents from the Parents’ Association (PA) Committee!
And before we go any further if you are looking for answers to the GCHQ Language quiz - PLEASE CLICK HERE
The committee is a team of parents such as yourselves elected to keep the PA on the move. By the very fact that you are a Pate’s parent you are already a member of the PA, a registered charity.
Our aim is to do what we can to advance the education of our children by providing and assisting in the provision of facilities for education at the School – this means lots of fundraising which in turn needs lots of volunteers and support. Our aim is to keep you informed of our fundraising activities and to make it is easy as possible for you to volunteer to help at school events.
We hold Committee Meetings every half term and hold our Annual General Meeting in the autumn term each year. The next PA Committee meeting will be held on 29th April 2019 at 6.45pm, in the Development Office Bungalow. The 2018 PA AGM was held on the 3rd October and the Annual Report and minutes are available below. The 2019 AGM will be held in early October 2019. Further details will be available here in due course.
Always feel free to email us with ideas, suggestions, offers and thoughts.
