POPs — People of Perse School

The People of Perse School organise a variety of fun and social events, such as summer and Christmas fetes, dances and quiz nights throughout the year to raise money for the school. This also helps brings together our parent community. POPs meet approximately once a month. Anyone is welcome at these meetings and can join the committee to discuss ideas and plan upcoming fundraising for the school. It doesn’t matter if parents can’t make every meeting and it is always very informal! Dates are advertised in the fortnightly Principal’s Newsletter. POPS would welcome new volunteers to help with fundraising. There is no minimum commitment so please consider joining us.

“Joining POPS is a great way of meeting other parents whilst helping to raise money for our children and school to benefit from.”
