Stopfordian Parents’ Association
Stockport Grammar School is proud to have the committed support and assistance of the Stopfordian Parents’ Association (SPA) who organise fun activities and events for pupils and parents to enjoy whilst raising funds to enhance the children’s experience across the whole school.
Benefiting the school community
The SPA work tirelessly to provide opportunities for the school community to come together and enrich the experiences our pupils – their sons and daughters – encounter whilst at the school. Some of the initiatives and activities they hold include:
- Organising the ever-popular Christmas Fair, sourcing delicious Christmas puddings and printing and selling Christmas cards featuring the artwork of Junior School children
- Organising the well-attended annual Quiz Night where players enjoy the renowned cheeseboard
- Running cake and drink stalls during Junior School Sports Day and organising Junior School discos.
One of the main aims of the association is to raise money for school enrichment projects and external charities.
Within the school environment these projects have included the purchase of musical instruments, items for the Library, kayaks and canoes, outdoor cricket nets, a branded school minibus, the clock on the wall outside the Biology block, a yellow and black picnic table, wooden benches and stage curtains and the a state-of-the-art lighting system for the Main Hall.
Parents of pupils across the whole school can get involved by joining the committee, attending meetings, organising events or becoming a class representative.
By getting involved you can get a great insight into school life and have the opportunity to meet fellow parents.
The current committee members are Lisa Lord, Sureeta Nayyar-Abassi, Megan Mehra, Melanie Haisley, Robyn O’Donnell, Penny Maughan and Jamie Bell. The Finance committee is comprised of Lisa Lord, Sureeta Nayyar-Abassi, Jamie Bell, Melanie Haisley and Megan Mehra.
