The Brighstone School Association (BSA) are a voluntary group of parents and staff who work together to raise funds for school projects and pupil enjoyment. The Summer Sizzler is an historic even in Brighstone, to which the entire village are invited, celebrating with stalls, freshly cooked food and drink, live music and entertainment. It raises hundreds of pounds each year.
We are always on the look out for new members to help with these efforts.If you think you may be interested or know someone that is, please either speak to our Chair, Lucy Brodie or Melissa Jones in the school office or maybe just come along to the next meeting. It would be great to see some new faces!
Our next meeting will be on Wednesday 17th January 2018 at 6.00 pm in Year 3 Classroom. All parents are very welcome to attend to discuss fundraising for the school. This meeting will be discussing the upcoming School Disco on the 9th February. If you require any further information regarding the BSA and what they do, please contact Melissa in the school office. Hope to see you there!
