Who are the Supporters of Sholing (SOS)?
The S.O.S. (previously Parent Teacher Association) is an organisation of parents and staff. Its role is to encourage closer links between home and school. PTAs are best known for their fundraising work, but they have a useful social function too. Fundraising events provide an opportunity for parents, staff and pupils to get together.
Most PTAs raise money through events. They often hold one main event each school term – for example, an autumn disco, a sponsored event in the spring and a summer fair. Other PTA events include school uniform sales, quiz evenings and many more. We are always looking for new fundraising ideas.
