Dwight Parent Association Newsletter


Dear Parents,


The Dwight Parent Association are busy putting the finishing touches to this year's adult social event which takes place this Saturday, 9th February. 


The casino games will be provided by London Fun Casino Hire with assistance from professional croupiers and delicious food from local caterers, Just Cos. In addition, there will be other games, entertainment and a chance to socialise with other adults.


Tickets are £25 each and can be purchased through the General Product section of your child's WisePay account here. The ticket price includes dinner, two drinks and five casino chips/fun money to use for playing games. You will be able to buy more fun money throughout the evening. In addition to other prizes, the player with the most chips at the end of the evening will receive a grand prize!


You are more than welcome to wear cocktail dresses and suits for this evening of glitz, glamour and games, but you do not have to! The dedicated team of parents that are planning this event just want you to be there, so get that babysitter lined up, make it a couple's night out or just invite your friends- they do not have to be a parent at Dwight to join the fun!


The night promises to be a fun one! This is the perfect chance to kick back, relax and socialise with other parents and staff of the school, all in support of the Whole School.


Raffle Donations
The DPA need items that can be used as raffle prizes for the Casino Night as well as other future events. If you have your own business and can donate your products or services or have a close relationship with someone who can, then please let us know at In the past we have had beauty treatments, personal training as well as branded merchandise. Or if you have an unwanted gift... One's Trash, Another's Treasure. We are also in need of volunteers to help out on the day of the Casino Night. Please do let us know if you can offer your help. We ask that anything you can offer could be left your nearest campus reception for collection on Friday, 8th February by 4.00pm.


Cake Sales

The Lower School had their first cake sale on Friday, 25th January which was hosted by Kindergarten and Reception. They managed to raise a wonderful £119.05. A huge thank you to all who donated such wonderful cakes! 



If you have not already then please do join the rest of the school community on Classlist here. It is a great and safe way to communicate with other parents without having to share your contact details. 


Please do not forget helping us raise funds for the DPA whenever you shop online. Use easyfundraising to shop with over 3,500 big name retailers including Amazon, Argos, John Lewis, ASOS, and – and when you shop, you'll raise a free donation for us every time. It is that easy! Help support us here.
