EVENT IDEAS


Cold, dark nights can leave us feeling glum (boo), but having some social engagements on the calendar can really lift the spirits (yay)! So spread some cheer by running a social event this season.


ew pupils (and their


parents) will have settled into the school routine by now, so it’s about time you


introduced them to the delights that the PTA has to offer! With chilly weather and shorter


days, a social event can really help beat the winter blues. Packing people into your school hall for a night of fun gives the PTA the opportunity to meet and greet new families, helps strengthen existing bonds and gives everyone the chance to socialise and raise money. If you want an event that is quick


and easy to organise, then look no further than a quiz or bingo night. A family disco is a great way to get the blood pumping, or how about a ceilidh? The dances involve people moving on to new partners, making this event a great ice-breaker. Pamper and shopping nights before


Christmas or in the run up to Mother’s Day give ladies the chance to pick up unique, not-on-the-high-street gifts. Dads usually enjoy the challenge of


a murder mystery, or for something a bit rowdier, a race night will have everyone out of their seats! Whether you’re hoping to squeeze one more event in before the end of the year, or you’re planning ahead for the spring term, our six featured ideas should kickstart discussions. To keep your workload to a minimum, many of these events have editable poster designs available at PTA Print Shop, and suppliers listed in our online directory. Remember, there are also tons of success stories and planning guides on our website, too – pta.co.uk.
