Bolton School Senior Girls
We welcome all parents to the meetings we hold so that everyone can be involved in the broader life of the School. New members and ideas are always valuable, particularly as there are so many ways that, as a parent, you can contribute to the PA.
There are lots of opportunities to help out, depending on how much time you have to offer. You can get involved more actively, such as offering placements for work or helping to plan an event. If you don't have quite as much time available, you can always help with less frequent events, such as stewarding at a Consultation Evening, running a stall at the fireworks night, or even baking for a bake sale. But most importantly, you can always show your support for the Parents' Association simply by attending our events.

The Chair of the Association for 2017-2018 is Ms Nissa Smyth. A member of the Parents' Association Committee also serves as Parent Governor. The current holder of this post is Mandy Hundle.
Fantastic Feasts and Fireworks
The annual fireworks Parents’ Association event is being held on Sunday 4th November. Following on from last year, we have again booked Titanium (responsible for the London Olympics and the Millennium fireworks). The theme for this year is ‘Fantastic Feasts and Fireworks’ and the display will be set to music. There will be the usual stalls but, following a huge demand last year, we have organised lots of additional food outlets. Gates will open at the earlier time of 4.00pm and supper will be available in the Dining Room (pasties and black peas will be on offer for the traditionalists), alongside more unusual food outlets outside. The fireworks display will be at 6.00pm. This is always a great evening for all the family and it would be lovely to see you there!
Please note that this year we will be restricting ticket numbers and so you are advised to book your tickets as soon as they go on sale later in September.
Our Next Fundraising Goal
We are currently raising funds to assist with the refurbishment of the Girls' Division Theatre. Many of the pupils across the whole school perform there at some point in their Bolton School life and the Parents' Information Evening events for each year group are also held there. Therefore many, if not all, Girls' Division families will benefit from the more comfortable, and improved, Girls' Division Theatre experience.
Parents may find the Girls' School Association (GSA) website a valuable source of up-to-date information, expert opinion and useful advice on all aspects of educating and raising girls.
Parents and carers may find the Parenting in the Digital Age website useful for tips on how to help your child stay safe online.
