More than 150 guests enjoyed a wonderful evening at the Parents’ Association Spring Ball in March, when the Great Hall was transformed into a glittering ballroom. There were plenty of opportunities to win some great prizes during the evening. The raffle, auction and Microscope Lotto raised a staggering £2,600, so thank you to everyone who gave so generously and also donated raffle prizes and auction lots. We also received a tremendous boost to our fundraising when the uncle of two St Olave’s students generously donated £3,000 to pay for all 20 advanced microscopes on the school’s “wish list”, for which we are extremely grateful. The PA has pledged to use all funds raised by the Spring Ball to purchase new science equipment for the newly extended and refurbished science block.
