Parent Activity Team (PAT)

Oliver House has an active Parent Activity Team (PAT) who organise social events and help to fundraise for the school.

The PAT exists to organise social events for the whole school and fundraise for resources which will benefit children throughout the school.

The PAT offers the opportunity for all parents to be involved either through organising events or through offering a small amount of time, at a given event, in this way contributing to the warm and vibrant school community which characterises Oliver House.

The school relies on the generosity of parents in giving their time to serve on the PAT and so to fulfil the school motto of  In Gaudio Serviamus – may we serve joyfully.

  • Annual events which are organised by the PAT include:
  • The PAT Social – a great way to meet new parents at the beginning of the school year
  • Christmas Fair – running this popular fundraising event
  • Nine Lessons and Carols and Prize Giving – organising refreshments for parents
  • End of year BBQ

Money raised by the PAT has been used to purchase new playground equipment for the children and to buy children’s laptop computers, Fizzbooks, for all Pre-Prep and Prep classes.
