Parents, Staff and Friends Association

This year we have launched our new Parents, Staff and Friends Association (PSFA). This will bring together members of our school community who are keen to support with organised events, develop business links and raise money for the school.

The inaugural PSFA meeting was held on 15th March and was attended by a mix of parents and staff who were all enthusiastic to ensure the success of the new venture. Jane Wach was elected as Chair, Katie Horwood as Secretary and Hilary Scotcher as Treasurer. A constitution was adopted and we are now in a position to register with the Charity Commission.

It was decided that the first event to be organised by the PSFA will be a Family Quiz Night which will be taking place on Saturday 30th June, so please support us by gathering your friends and joining us for an evening of brain teasing fun. Completed booking forms should be returned to psfa@birchwoodhigh.org.uk as soon as possible please.

New faces are more than welcome at our meetings! Being involved with the PSFA is a great opportunity to get to know the school better and to meet and get to know other parents. If you would like to become involved, whether on a regular or ad hoc basis, or you are interested in keeping up to date with developments, please contact the Committee via e-mail at psfa@birchwoodhigh.org.uk.

Future meeting dates:

Monday 5th July - 6.30pm in the downstairs sports hall classroom

Birchwood Bonus Ball

Thank you very much to everyone who signed up to take part in our Birchwood Bonus Ball Club this term. We had a great response of 85 entries! 50% of subscriptions have been allocated as prize money and 50% to PSFA funds, which makes a monthly prize of £42.50. The draw for April was made by Mr Connor, and witnessed by two members of school staff. Congratulations go to Amanda Goodvin who is our first winner with number 43.

The Birchwood Bonus Ball Club is now closed to new subscriptions for this term, but if you missed out this time there will be plenty of opportunity to join in after the Summer break.
