Parents have a ball at PTA evening

Masquerade party goes with a swing as parent groups let their hair down

More than 150 guests enjoyed the PTA Masquerade Ball at Birmingham Conference & Events Centre. Hallfield School’s PTA joined forces with Edgbaston High School’s PA to put on the lavish evening for the parent bodies of Birmingham’s leading independent schools. A drinks reception was followed by a three-course meal, raffle and dancing to music from DJ Reece Dowd and live band Motown Gold. Urvi Kara, chairwoman of Hallfield School PTA, said: “It was nice to see mums and dads getting into the party spirit and letting their hair down.”
