The House Committee is made up of parent representatives from each of the different classes under a Chair, Vice Chair and Treasurer. The Committee organises many fundraising and social activities for the school community, including an annual quiz night for parents. The Committee supports charities and raises money for the school.
The House Committee also masterminds two spectacular events every year: a wonderful, festive Christmas Fair and a spectacular Summer Fair. This last event is now held on a Saturday so previous girls and their families, new girls and their families as well as current families can come and spend a fun day altogether.
In the past there have also been special events such as Ruby and Celebration Balls and these have been huge successes. The House Committee members are a lively and innovative team who are always open to new ideas.
In addition to arranging events to raise funds, the Class Reps may be asked to create a rota of parents to accompany classes on school trips. Also, they organise supper parties every term when parents and staff come together to enjoy supper in a relaxed environment, giving everyone a chance to get to know each other better. Class Reps also arrange coffee mornings out of school, help with the sale of second hand uniform and with the sale of Bute House merchandise.
The Head invites all members of the House Committee to a drinks party with herself and the Senior Management Team every year, as a thank you for all their hard work.
Over the years, the House Committee has raised money for the school, providing the Wendy House and furniture, electronic keyboards, the playground fixed equipment, the landscaping of the garden, interactive Smartboards, a digital video camera, art equipment, stage curtains,sound system and stage lighting in the Hall.
The House Committee raises money tirelessly for charities and for the school and their hard work is highly valued. The school recognises all members of the House Committee as a wonderful and much appreciated part of the school community.
Being a member of the House Committee is a great way of getting involved with the school so do consider it!
