Thetford Grammar School has a very enthusiastic Parent Staff Association (PSA) whose objectives are to support the school in various ways as well as to raise funds for the purchase of those extra special items that all of the children will benefit from. Where possible, the PSA also like to contribute to improvements to the general school environment, helping to make it a pleasant place for both pupils and staff to work.
During the school we hold regular fund raising events, including:
- Winter Fayre
- Spring event
- Summer Ball
- Summer Fete
There is also a 100+ Club and the winning numbers are usually drawn at one of our fund raising events. All of these will enable those attending to mingle, get to know fellow parents and form new friendships which last for many years. Information about this initiative also accompanies the Guide.
The PSA also supports many school activities by providing refreshments at various functions – School Concerts, Sports Days, School Plays and Musical Productions etc. It is also able to represent your interest and, where appropriate, liaise with the school on your behalf.
The Nearly New Uniform shop gives parents the opportunity to buy used uniform. Unwanted uniform donations of course are always welcome.
Parents are encouraged to become involved with the PSA, with each year group, from EYFS through to Sixth Form, having parent representation. If you can spare the time and would like to get involved, please contact the school office, Tel: 01842 752840, who will gladly advise when the next meeting is scheduled.
The committee is always keen to have new faces join them or it may be that you are able to help out occasionally at fundraising events, in either case you will be ensured of a warm welcome.
We look forward to meeting you.
Mrs Nicky Dickens
