Where does the money go?

The PSA provides funds for many aspects of the school.

During 2019-20 the PSA spent £200 on an author visit to Christ’s and £180.79 towards a new portable PA system.

For 2020-21, we made a number of charitable commitments for the academic year. We are pleased to have committed to:

In addition, we have received requests for and are awaiting further details on:

  • £4,950 towards curtains for the Drama hall
  • £4,500 towards a new Laser Cutter for the Technology Department
  • £400 towards artwork hanging fixtures for the Art Department

Major projects have included:

LANDSCAPING PROJECT

PHASE 2 - now complete!

Phase 2 of the project was completed over the October half term, and the inner quad is now complete with new raised decking area instead of muddy grass. Apparently it is already in high demand!  We just need to pretty it up a bit now with hanging flower baskets or similar.........any ideas from parents or students welcome!

You can also just make out behind that the railing and building behind have also been repainted a neutral green, which makes the whole area look much smarter.

So what is the next project going to be?  Please come along to the next PTA meeting with any suggestions....

PHASE 2 - now in progress

HUGE thanks for all your donations towards the landscaping project – the great news is that we now have enough to go ahead with the work, which should take place at the beginning September.  Look out for photos on the PTA page of Christ’s website once the work has been completed.

PHASE 1 OF LANDSCAPING PROJECT COMPLETED!

 

Over the February half term, the first phase of the landscaping project was completed, which transformed the muddy inner quad area shown below....

.....into a wonderful new smart, all weather seating area shown in the images below.

The Final step of finishing the border area was completed over the Easter holidays. We decided to go for decking interspersed with robust planting, as we thought this would be both functional, providing much needed seating, at the same time as reducing the need for plant maintenance.

Now onto Phase 2......
