de Ferrers Specialist Technology College (PSFA) News 2005

Winter 2005

Our first event of this academic year got our fund raising off to a cracking start. We held a Fashion Show on Dove Campus on 12th October which was attended by 140 fashion conscious people. 8 of our Year 11 students modelled the fashions and looked really professional. The amazing amount of £720 was raised and will go towards purchasing various items for our College.

Plans are well in hand now for our Christmas Fair which is to be held on Dove Campus on 1st December. This promises to be a really enjoyable evening with lots of stalls and games - something for everyone.

We're already thinking about 2006 and have booked a Quiz Night for Friday 27th January. This will also be on Dove Campus and teams of no more than 4 people can pit their wits against our Quiz Master Ian MacDonald. Entry is £10 per team which will also include supper. Prizes are awarded for Adults, KS3, KS4 and 6th Form. This is always a very popular event and places are booked quite quickly so book your team in now!

Tickets or information about any of the above can be obtained from Pat Thorpe - Chair of de Ferrers PSFA, by calling on 01283 548801.
