PA Funds Enhance Life in the Boys’ Division

  • KKP-150412.jpg

The Parents’ Association has once more funded a range of initiatives to enhance life in the Boys’ Division. 

The brand new Bola cricket bowling machine is an invaluable piece of equipment in developing young cricketers towards excellence. It is used at indoor nets with all six squads (100 boys) throughout the spring term, at outdoor nets and on square practices during the summer term as well as on around 20 Sunday afternoons for MCCF groups, whereby an average of 45 boys from state schools receive coaching as part of Bolton School’s community outreach programme. 

A replacement cricket-style Pavilion clock with the school logo on gives the finishing touches to the refurbished pavilion, as well as marking the gift of the original from the family of Herbert Slater Duffin, a former pupil (1924-31) and games master (1949-53). 

PA funding has transformed an area of school into a functional learning support environment, where one-to-one and small group sessions can be run, as well as providing a space where boys can spend time relaxing in a supportive environment with access to calming lighting. The Learning Support department continues to flourish and will now be able to run more support projects for the benefit of the whole school community. 

The Music Department will be able to enhance its current stock of music stands, replace broken ones and transport them more easily on a brand new storage cart. This will benefit all year groups in rehearsals, concerts, class music lessons and individual music lessons. 

The invaluable contribution that the Parents’ Association makes to all areas of school life is only possible through the generous support of parents, and we thank you for your efforts.
