A group that plays a vital fundraising role at Sidmouth College is in danger of disbanding if another committee cannot be appointed.

Several long-standing members are stepping down, leaving the Sidmouth College Association (SCA) in need of new blood.

If no replacements are found, its hard-earned cash will have to be handed over to the business manager, and bosses say the move would be a ‘great loss’ for the school.

A spokesman said: “Secondary schools like ours rely on extra funds raised by parent-teacher associations to supplement our budget and give students the best possible learning experience.

“In short, the value of the SCA is unquestionable.

“And being a member of the SCA will give you the opportunity to meet staff and other parents socially, discuss college policies and other matters of interest – and have fun.”

The parent-teacher collaboration has helped finance visiting speakers, sports facilities, science equipment and a digital SLR camera in the last year alone.

The SCA’s well-supported quiz and curry event raised £256 towards its funds – but bosses fear this could be one of its final events.

Its next meeting is at the school on June 11. A new committee needs to be found before the AGM in September.

To find out more, email Anne Bishop on bishopam@btopenworld.com or call the school on 01395 514823.
