Dear Uplands Past Pupils, Parents of Past Pupils and Friends of Uplands,
It is with great pleasure that we announce the launch of the Uplands Past Pupils Assocation (UPPA). This is a new structure, set up by a group of past pupils with the view to:
1. Fostering, encouraging and maintaining bonds between UPPA members and between UPPA members and the Uplands Schools.
2. Raising funds for the Uplands Schools.
3.Providing strategic input into the Uplands Schools where required.
4. Acting as a custodian of the culture and ethos of the Uplands Schools.
UPPA has been guided by a committed Steering Committee for the past 6 months to oversee the formation of the association and planned operation of UPPA. A proposed constitution has been drafted which is available for comment/input over the next few months. We hope to have this document finalised and ratified at the UPPA Annual General Meeting in November 2011.
It is opportune for UPPA’s launch to coincide
with the Uplands Festival – the single largest fund raiser on the Uplands calendar. Fund raising is indeed one of UPPA’s
primary functions. For the Uplands Schools to survive and prosper, they need to be able to compete with the best schools
Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, I believe it is the camaraderie between various Uplands past pupils that initiated the UPPA concept. It is this that UPPA can now provide for all Uplands past pupils, past parents and friends in the form of networking, socials and project work – fun and friendship in the name of supporting our Uplands Schools!
Join now and give generously….
