At Prior Weston we have a very active PTA that runs multiple events during the year. This has previously included a Harvest Festival, an 'Auction of Promises' and an International Evening. They also run a Lotteria every month. For more information on their work and how to get involved, please visit their website.
The 20th Auction of Promises - 22nd June, 2017
This year’s 20th Auction of Promises was a great success! The PTA are yet to tally all the money raised, but so far the live auction raised a grand total of £18,000. This money goes to paying for all the school trips and supporting the residential trips.
The success of the night and preparations beforehand would not have been possible without the sterling effort of the whole school community.
We would like to say thank you to everyone who made a promise, donated an item, chased a local business, ran the raffle, edited and proofed the catalogue, created the signs, managed the art, sold tickets and collected promises mornings and afternoons, ran the bar, auctioned the lots and kept track of all the wins. Not to mention everyone who turned up to enjoy the evening, helped with set up/clear up and who bid.
Also, a big shout out and massive thank you to all the wonderful mums (and couple of dads too!) who very generously provided the AMAZING supper for the Auction of Promises. This is the first year this has ever happened, and it meant that all the proceeds of the ticket sales went directly to the PTA rather than to the caterers who hitherto have done the food
What a FANTASTIC CONTRIBUTION and what a brilliant way to build the Prior Weston community!
