PTA News & Events (2014)
PTA Summer Ball31 May 2014
On a glorious summer’s evening at Perth Racecourse, Scone, Craigclowan PTA held their Summer Ball. A Pimm’s reception outside in the evening sun was followed by a splendid dinner. The Auction followed dinner (ably managed by Ernie Thomson) with a fabulous selection of Lots generously donated by members of the Craigclowan community. The raffle was drawn and prizes handed out to delighted winners – and then the winners of the evening’s ‘special incentive’ Winners Enclosure was announced. This was awarded to the table who had bought the most raffle tickets, and gave the table four bottles of bubbly to share – the Chepstow table wore their ‘Winner’ rosettes with pride!
Music was provided by ‘Boogie Hook-Up’ who performed a wonderful set, and then there was a disco, taking revelers into the wee small hours. What a lot of funky movers there are amongst the Craigclowan parents!
The PTA are absolutely delighted to announce that at total of £13,850 was raised on the evening. £2,100 (representing 50% of the Hammer Price of the star auction lot) will be donated to a charity of the choice of the winning bidders. The balance of the funds will be spent on an overhaul and makeover of the School Library.
Craigclowan Clay Pigeon Shoot at Strathallan14 May 2014
A super time was had by the Craigclowan Dads who attended this year’s Clay Pigeon Shoot at Strathallan School. The event was hosted by Strathallan as a social event and fundraiser for the Craigclowan PTA, raising just under £200. Four teams took part in the event with some excellent shooting by the winning team, who received prizes on the night. The event took place at Strathallan’s purpose built Clay Pigeon Shooting Facility, the only one of its kind in Scottish schools. The setup is fully automatic and coaching was provided to the rustier of the participants by one of Scotland’s top Clay Pigeon coaches.
The evening was wrapped up with fine hospitality in the form of a delicious supper of curry and profiteroles, kindly provided by Strathallan. This was much enjoyed by the Craigclowan Dads, along with some great chat and banter! We look forward to offering this event again next year, and are hugely grateful to Strathallan for hosting and organizing it for us.
