From Melanie Ball, Director of Development
We have come a long way since the formation of the development office back in 2012. Thanks to the generous support of donors and benefactors we have been delighted to open here at Prior Park College The Bury Sports Centre, a valuable asset for both the school and the wider community. We have also been able to refurbish a Biology lab, in honour of former teacher Vic Ferguson with support from a group of former pupils, open a new art faculty and relocate our 6th form. At The Paragon, support from a local charitable trust has provided for the building of a new music lodge and IT centre benefitting all of the children who study with us, enhancing their learning and increasing opportunities.
We continue to raise funds for bursarial support for our students, particularly for those already with us that face a challenging change in circumstance through no fault of their own. It is without doubt the most rewarding experience to ensure at a time of uncertainty the education of a young person. We are forever grateful to those that are investing in the next generation of Prior students, and we hope that in time these beneficiaries may also be able to give back too.
We are not standing still and our current focus is on a new All Weather Pitch, the restoration and enhancement to our beautiful Our Lady of the Snows, and our unwavering commitment to our bursary programme.
I welcome the opportunity to discuss in person our plans, so do not hesitate to pop in, give me a call or e-mail me. I look forward to hearing from you.
