PUT PUPILS CENTRE STAGE


Talent show Fun factor:   Effort:   Money raised:  Draw on the popularity of TV talent shows to run your own! Agree dates for the show and auditions, giving performers time to rehearse. Check the capacity of your venue and start selling tickets. Establish what equipment you might need, and recruit judges and some witty compres. Organise prizes for rst, second and third places – seek sponsorship from local businesses such as dance schools or music shops. After the auditions, conrm the running order. Sell programmes on the night. Read our step-by-step guide to running a talent show at pta.co.uk/events.


Powershot challenge Fun factor:  Effort:  Money raised:   A sponsored powershot challenge is a fun way to encourage children to get active. Ask pupils to seek sponsorship to achieve their fastest shot at goal (allow three goes each). Obtain a speed-radar machine to record the speed of each shot – local sports clubs may allow you to hire or borrow one. Give people an incentive to take part by having a range of prizes up for grabs, and hand out certicates to all those who take part. Award prizes to the pupils with the fastest shot and most sponsorship money raised. Read our powershot success story at pta.co.uk/sponsored.

ACTION!


Art exhibition Fun factor:  Effort:  Money raised: 


Challenge pupils to create artwork for an exhibition. Find a suitable venue with facilities to display or hang creations. Get pupils to give their piece a title. Contact local art and photography societies about exhibiting additional works, charging a commission on any pieces sold. Invite parents, local press and dignitaries along to your gallery opening. We’d suggest asking for voluntary donations rather than charging an entry fee. Boost profits by encouraging families to purchase their child’s artwork and by selling cakes and refreshments.

Bedtime stories Fun factor:   Effort:  Money raised:  Invite pupils to come back to school for the evening wearing their pyjamas or onesies, with their favourite teddy. Recruit storytellers for different age groups to read to children in separate rooms. Take a break during the evening, where children can enjoy hot chocolate and a biscuit (include this in your ticket price). Add a few craft activities that tie in with the theme of the books. Younger children may want their parents to stay, so have teas and coffees for sale, too.
