Please donate to the SPS Parents’ Group. The past twelve months have been challenging for all, and the SPS Parents' Group has not been spared.
The main purpose of the SPS Parents’ Group is to bring together the Pauline community of parents, pupils and staff with an engaging calendar of events and to provide a network for friendship and support amongst parents to enhance their experience of being a Pauline Parent.
In a normal year, the activities that we organise for the Pauline community typically raise approximately £3000, which is used to cover activities which directly benefit all of us such as:
-the Welcome event for new parents,
-our annual Christmas Soirée and decorations,
-support of bursary student participation in fee paying school activities
-and grants of funding for academic departments. Examples of such funded school projects include a gold coater to enhance use of the SEM Microscope for the Chemistry department, a theramin for the Physics department, bee keeping equipment for the Biology department, and so forth.
In the past year, we have also incurred additional expenses including cancellation fees for last year’s spring and summer events, and the purchase of a Business Zoom account in order to facilitate on-line year group gatherings.
We are setting a donation target of £3000 to replace the funding we would typically raise in a normal academic year with a full calendar of events. This would put us in a position to begin the next academic year with sufficient reserves to fund a return to normal Parent Group activities and support school projects, bursary funding and the development of our whole school community.
