Parents' Auxiliary Services and Events
The Parents' Auxiliary provides a number of services to students and families in support of the school.
Volunteering with the PA
We are always looking for volunteers to help us run the services and events we offer at the school. Volunteering is also a great way to meet other parents. If you can help, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or talk to your grade representative.
Used Uniform Sales
The Parents’ Auxiliary runs Used Uniform Sales throughout the year. Buying items from the Used Uniform Sales saves families money and reduces the number of new uniform pieces needed, which lessens our environmental impact.
The largest sale takes place during the first week of school. Throughout the school year, monthly sales are held at the Derby facility on Shelbourne Street – typically the first Tuesday each month. Dates and times are published in the online calendar.
For more information, please contact email@example.com.
Parents can donate quality used uniform items by putting them into the bins in the lobbies of Junior and Middle Schools or at the Campus Shop.
Hot Lunch Programs
Approximately once per week, the PA organizes and delivers a hot lunch at each of the three schools. Pizza days are the most common offering. The revenue generated from this service is redirected back to the school, through the PA, in ways that enhance student life. If you have missed the deadline, or if you are interested in signing up:
Boarders without Borders
Boarders without Borders helps connect our boarding and day communities. Through this program, day families can host boarding students in their homes for a Sunday meal once or twice a year. This initiative is greatly appreciated by the boarders, who enjoy a home-cooked meal and a family setting. The hosts enjoy having a guest who can tell them about different places and sometimes about other cultures.
Boarders Birthday Treats
During the school term, the Parents’ Auxiliary can arrange for birthday (or other occasion) celebration ice cream sandwiches to be sent to a student in boarding. This can be arranged by completing the order form.
Social and Fundraising Events
The Parents’ Auxiliary holds a number of social and fundraising events throughout the year. These include coffee mornings, quiz nights and the Winter Gala, typically attended by more than 700 parents, students and SMUS staff. Further information is posted in the school’s online calendar.
