Birchwood Parents, Staff and Friends Association

Our aim is to bring together members of our school community who are keen to support with organised events, develop business links and raise money for the school.

Introducing the Birchwood Futures Foundation Fund

Make a donation using Virgin Money Giving

Please help us raise additional financial resources to enhance students’ educational experience whilst at Birchwood High School.
We are hoping to expand assistance to support resources the School does not currently receive dedicated government funding for. This fund has the potential to make an enormous difference for our Birchwood community. As an example, if we were to receive a contribution of £60 per child per year, this would raise over £80,000 annually which would directly benefit the students.
Contributions of £5 per month, the equivalent of two cups of coffee, would be greatly appreciated.
We hope you will consider supporting our new parent fund. Donations of any value are voluntary and collectively will make a huge difference for the school.

Virtual Valentine’s Balloon Race

Join our Virtual Valentine's Balloon Race and win £75! Surprise your Valentine with a heart shaped balloon and take part in our race. As we are unable to arrange fundraising events at the moment, the PSFA have arranged a Virtual Valentine's Balloon Race. For those unfamiliar with the concept, a virtual balloon race works in the same way as a helium balloon race but the balloons fly around their own virtual world rather than in the atmosphere, making it much more environmentally friendly. Each balloon costs £3 and the winner will receive £75!
Please go to https://www.balloonrace.com/BirchwoodPSFA where you can choose your heart shaped balloon, perhaps for your Valentine and even add your own personal message on the tag. On Sunday 14 February, at
midday, the balloons will be released to float around their virtual world using a specially designed algorithm, which ensures a random pattern, with no clear leader emerging. Every hour each balloon travels between 1km and 20km. You can follow your balloon throughout the race and see where you are on the race leaderboard. At the end of the race at midday on Friday 19 February the balloon which has travelled the furthest wins a £75 cash prize. You can buy as many balloons as you like, for friends as well as family. Please share this as entry is open to everyone.
