Parents' Association Home
Dear Parents and Carers
The next STRS Parent’s association virtual meeting will take place on Thursday the 20th May 2021 at 7.30pm for meeting details please email firstname.lastname@example.org. We would welcome anyone who would like to join us.
Welcome to the Parents' Association section of the STRS website. All parents, carers and guardians of present and past pupils of the school are automatically members of the Parents' Association. As PA committee members, we are all volunteers who support the school in a whole range of activities. These include managing the uniform shop, coordinating and providing refreshments and organising fundraising events.
The activities that we organise and the funds that we raise for the school are all dependent upon each of us as parents volunteering to provide the help requested. If you would like to help the school by getting involved in the Parents' Association in any way, please email the Chair on PAChair@strs.org.uk who will advise you further.
