Parent Association

Calling all dads!

It’s time to plan our City Country Fathers’ Weekend away including deciding on the town we’d like to visit. If you’re a country dad or group of dads who would like to show off your town and surrounding areas then please send your ideas  to PAL.

Activities that we’ve done in the past on our weekend away include a golf afternoon, wine tasting, cellar door visit, local restaurant evening meal, rugby match and a museum visit.

So please give it some thought and let us know your ideas by Monday 25 March  and we’ll start organising.

Thanks to all the PAL helpers who attended Open Day last Saturday – the rain didn’t deter and we ended up having a wonderful day!

To get in touch with us, please contact us via email.
