“Friends of Hagley RC High School” was established
following the successful fundraising year of 2004/5 when we helped the school to
raise £50,000 towards achieving Specialist
Status in Performing Arts. The intention of the Friends of Hagley was to build
on this fantastic achievement, and provide both an opportunity for parents to
meet and grow as a community, whilst also raising funds to support all the
children in our school.
At the last meeting we decided to rename "Friends of Hagley" to "Hagley Catholic High School PTA." We felt that this would be a more appropriate statement of the purpose of the group and would better reflect our desire to be professional and inclusive.
can make a significant difference to the school community with the money we
raise. In 2009 we raised over £15,000
towards the cost of a new minibus. The
committee work closely with the school and greatly appreciate the assistance of
Karl Wilcox, Business Manager.
are also fortunate to have the support of the local circle of the Catenians, who often lend a willing
hand at our events. Read more about the local circle at http://www.stourbridgecatenians.co.uk
In the Spring of 2013 Friends of Hagley School funded the
purchase of a new sound system and new blinds for the school hall. Thank
you to everyone who supported our events and enabled us to raise the funds to
pay for this.
