Parents' Association Events

PA events

The PA run a wide range of events throughout the year, to bring the school community together or to raise funds - or both! 

The biggest event of the year is the recently-introduced Challoner's High Christmas Fayre, which is held at the end of November. Parents enjoy the annual quiz night, and the younger girls love the school discos, four or which are held each year: two here, and two at the boys’ school (DCGS). We provide a BBQ lunch for everyone on Sports Day, and we organise the Year 11 Prom alternate years with DCGS. We also run a Spring Draw which is one of our biggest fundraisers.

See below for Event Reviews.

The PA Committee are always looking for new ways of getting people together and raising money for the school. In the past, we have put on a Ceilidh, an Indulgence Evening and a Bollywood night, plus Comedy Nights, Theatre Trips, and a Spring Festival. Contact us if you'd like to find out more, or would like to join one of our event teams.
