PSA

Welcome to the Stroud High School Parent Staff Association

 

Pre-loved uniform

The PSA is currently trialling a new method for selling Pre-loved SHS uniform. In doing this we're hoping to facilitate parents needing replacement items and parents wanting to offload used items - and at the same time raise funds for the PSA that can then go towards the purchase of equipment for the students.

Purchases

Our aim is to make the second hand uniform stock available throughout the year, initially planning to open the ‘store’ once each short term. If interest is high then we will look into opening more frequently or at different times (eg if lunchtime is better than after school).

The date for opening this term is shown on the stock list in the link below.   

Current Stock and Opening Time

Uniform Donations

Donations are always welcome – and thanks very much to those of you who have given generously to our current stock.  At the moment we have a good stock of a lot of standard uniform though we are low on some sizes.

Items we don’t currently need are: long sleeve blouses up to chest size 36” [however we are low on certain sizes – please see sheet]

Items that we need or would be very useful to stock are:

  • Short sleeve blouses of any size
  • Skirts – particularly waist size 30” and above
  • Jackets – chest size 36” upwards
  • Sports kit of any type
  • Trainers
  • Football boots
  • Black shoes

Please do ensure all items are in good condition, washed and ironed.

Looking for a specific item and can’t see it on our stock list?

Send us an email at ameliep2004@yahoo.co.uk and we will put out a request with our next reminder.  We are also open to feedback on this process, to help us to make it work for you, so please don’t hesitate to contact us with your queries or comments.

Many thanks for your co-operation with this process.

 

What is the PSA?

The PSA (Parent Staff Association) exists to raise funds which are used to benefit all of our daughters from Year 7 right through to Year 13. We are a friendly bunch of parents and staff who meet every couple of months to organise a number of fun events throughout the year, as well as to support established school events.

For example this year’s events include a Pamper Evening and Craft Fair, both Junior and Senior Concerts, a drama production, a Family Quiz Night and a Sports Awards evening.  We’ll be publicising these as they draw nearer.

Other major fundraisers for the school include:

  • Gift Aid:  Instead of having to commit in helping to run jumble sales, cake sales or standing for hours at a school fete, you can simply commit to a direct monthly donation (no matter how small!) which will help enhance the school experience for everyone’s daughters - a Gift Aid form can be downloaded below;
  • Givey:  Simply go to www.givey.com, enter Stroud High School Parent Staff Association in the search field, hit the icon and press the ‘donate’ button;
  • Easyfundraising.com:  Just go to www.easyfundraising.org.uk, press the ‘support a good cause’ button, look for Stroud High School PSA and download an app which activates donations whenever you shop online at a huge number of sites.

Over the years we have been able to fund the provision of a broad range of facilities and activities for the school, from new tennis courts and a conservatory for the cafeteria, to the covers for the quads so that students can use them all year round.  Our fundraising for these 'extras' that enhance the student experience allows the school to concentrate its resources on your daughter’s education.

We are always looking to recruit new Association members, especially from new Stroud High School parents, so please do talk to us when you come to the school for the various events throughout the year, alternatively, please feel free to contact me directly – I’ll do my best to help.
