Academic Year 2017-2018
Michaelmas Term 2017
MacMillan Coffee Morning - Saturday, 9 September
A huge thank you to all those who supported our Coffee Morning. Despite being the first weekend back you raised a staggering £900 which will pay for over 30 MacMillan nursing hours.
Parent/Staff MAMMA MIA Disco - Saturday, 11 November
Well we've never seen so much lycra, glitter eye-shadow (and that was just the chaps) plus so many pairs of platform boots. A great night was had by all and we're already being asked about the next one.
Lent Term 2018
Papplewick Quiz Night - Friday 23 February
So who thinks they’re a bit of a know-it-all? Who stays up to 2am in the morning reading the works of Tolstoy? Who actually understands quantum physics? Who is surprised they made it through to graduation let alone achieve a 2:1? Who has realised that by the time their son is in Year 7, said son probably knows more than they do?
If you answered YES to any of the above questions then you are more than qualified to enter in to the inaugural Papplewick Quiz.
Now whilst we cannot whisk you off to the local boozer, we are bringing the pub quiz to the school. Starting at 7.30pm for £15 per person, we shall not only give you a fun evening of entertainment of the highest quality, but we’ll also throw in a fish’n’ chip supper (veggies will be catered for) and also a few beers and wines … now you can’t say that’s not a bargain!
Teams will be made up of 8 people - we cannot have them any bigger and we are limited to a maximum of 20 teams, so tickets will be sold on a first come first served basis. To order your tickets please email email@example.com. To make things nice and easy the cost of your ticket(s) will be added to your next school bill.
Summer Term 2018
Now last year a number of you scoffed when at the start of the academic year PoP said "the summer term will be here before you know it", then the next thing you're all saying "is it really time for the Summer Ball? That came round quick!"
Hog Roast - Sunday, 3 June 2018 (Provisional)
No Summer Term would be complete without the boys' favourite event of the year - our Hog Roast. We had a great time in June. Not only did the sun shine but you all enjoyed the sumptuous BBQ which replaced the traditional hog (can you have a Hog Roast without a hog - yes at Papplewick you can) and Scrufts was a huge hit raising £200 for Battersea Dog and Cats Home. So we'll definitely be back.
Summer Ball - Thursday, 5 July 2018
The 2017 Summer Ball was heralded as the "best ever" so we've set ourselves a mammoth task to improve upon it. However never one to shy away from a challenge PoP will be back in July with another black tie event ... we can tell you that our favourite band !DAFT! has already been booked!
Please come back to this page as we'll update it with the latest info on what's going on
