The Friends of Prendergast School Association (FOPSA) supports both academic learning and the wider life experiences of students at Prendergast and is a point of contact and information sharing for parents. It is a parent-led charity and all parents/ guardians of students at Prendergast School are members. Attendance at our social events is an enjoyable way of contributing to the life of the school and of getting to know other members of the Prendergast Community.
FOPSA primarily organises fundraising events involving students, teachers and parents, to pay for resources and activities that can’t be covered by the general school budget. Our major events include the parent and teacher quiz night, the Christmas Fair , cake stalls, MUFTI days and a film night. Over the past two years, FOPSA has contributed to the year 7, year 8 and year 9 trips and paid for iPads for the Geography and Media departments, a printer for the Textiles department, data processing equipment for the Science department and an acoustic sound booth for the Music department drum room.
FOPSA holds a one-hour meeting every half-term, an AGM in March and a social night out in the summer term. If you can’t come to evening meetings, please support us by volunteering at events. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to receive regular updates.
