St. Olave's Parents' Association

The primary objective of the PA is to build a community amongst St. Olave’s parents and carers and to facilitate that we organise a number of activities and social events each year; e.g. Quiz night, Fun day, Diwali celebrations, Chinese New Year, PA Ball. We also co-ordinate provisioning of refreshments and support for School events including school concerts and functions, parents’ evenings etc.

The PA also raises vital funds to support the school in the provision of facilities and equipment that assist directly in the education of our children. We are quite proud that St. Olave’s has a very active parents’ community and we have supported some very important projects in addition to funding wish lists from various departments in the school.

All parents of the School are automatically members of the PA, and we hope that many of you will wish to actively support our work, participate in our events and contribute financially to PA funds. Please look out for forthcoming PA events and functions.

We would very much like to invite you to come along to committee meetings and get involved with the activities of the PA. Also if you would be prepared to help out occasionally (one or two times a year) with refreshments at School functions, or on Saturday morning for Rugby Refreshments, please contact us.
You can help as little or as much as you wish, we appreciate it all, and there are so many ways to contribute.

Successful Fundraising:

We have raised over £338,000 and invested this money directly in the education of our children. Our donations have included equipment and teaching accessories to virtually all departments; e.g. Arts – camera and projector; DT – laser cutting material, VEX kits; Biology, Physics, Chemistry – lab equipment e.g. faraday’s law apparatus, magnetic field sensor, oscilloscopes, infrared camera; History/Geography/Economics – books and subscriptions; Maths – laptops; Languages – dictionaries ; PE – table tennis table, rowing machines and so much more.
