Successful Department bids for PFA funding 2017
As promised in the School newsletter and the previous webpage update, I am pleased to be able to update everyone on the successful bids for PFA funding.
We had ten bids to consider from various school departments this year; some projects will be ongoing, whereas others build upon the curriculum and help to enrich the whole school.
Successful department bids:
Canteen New Tumble Dryer
History Replica items to assist with the study of the First and Second World Wars
Music A vocal microphone and two guitar amplifiers
MFL A grant to purchase software, a visualiser and to enable the department to take part in a ‘translation bee’ competition
PE Protective wear for the cricket teams
Additional Needs Purchase of SNAP software, user manual and assessment forms
Library Two sets of shelving and seating
Money given to other whole school projects:
Four outdoor Table Tennis tables, for use by the whole school
A grant to cover transport costs for the Outlook Expedition to India
Equipment to renovate and update the sound and lighting facilities in the School Hall
I am encouraged by the success of the last year and hope that we will be able to build upon various initiatives supported here over the next one.
A big thank you to the members of staff and committee members past and present who’ve enabled the above grants to be made, but most of all thank you to everyone who has contributed or attended PFA events in any way, shape or form.
