Many thanks to everyone who attended and supported our school PTA Bonfire Night and Fireworks Display on Friday 2nd November 2018. We are delighted to announce that it was the most successful event yet, with over 1600 people attending.

The PTA received lots of positive feedback from parents, pupils and people from the local community, with many commenting on the fantastic atmosphere, organisation, bonfire and impressive fireworks.

"The night was a resounding success," said Claire Sheridan, Chair of the PTA. "It was lovely to hear so many positive comments and see so many people enjoying themselves."

As the bonfire built by our school site team blazed away, the crowds were treated to an impressive fireworks display and live music provided by the school's Music Department. 

The food stalls were very busy, offering a wide selection of choices including curries, pies, hot dogs, burgers, drinks, candyfloss, cakes, sweets as well as the traditional Preston dish of parched peas.

“Nights like this just simply cannot take place without the dedication, time, support and attitude of everyone involved,” said Claire Sheridan. “I am very proud to be a part of such an amazing team.”

The PTA would like to thank parents and carers for all their support. A special thank-you goes out to all the parents, carers and pupils who donated delicious cakes for the event, they were snapped up!

The PTA could not hold this event without the support of the following people; Mrs Jackson, the Senior Leadership Team, teachers and support staff, the site team and Mrs Higson, Catering Manager, and the catering team. Thank-you to all parents who helped with the setting up, marshalling and operating the stalls.

The PTA have already had some very positive feedback from parents but if you would like to comment or suggest improvements please email pta@archbishoptemple.com

The PTA’s next big event is the Colour Dash, in May, but please continue to support the PTA throughout the next few months at Parents' Evening refreshment stalls, school concerts and so on. If you would like to get involved with volunteering for the PTA, please email pta@archbishoptemple.com or come along to a PTA meeting, everyone is welcome.

The next PTA meeting is on Thursday 15th November 2018 at 7pm in the Music Block.
