Fashion shows – is there a better way of raising money for your school?
Children love taking part in Fashion Shows and the Kids on the Catwalk Fashion Shows for primary schools are professionally run, entertaining events that the whole family can enjoy. They are great fun for the children, who enjoy the performance and they are an easy way for the PTA to raise funds.
Schools earn £500 on average from a single show, but more is entirely possible. Some schools book a show with us every year as they recognise just how much the children enjoy and benefit from them. If your school hasn’t held a fashion show before, or if your PTA has recently changed, here’s how it works.
We ask for between 30 and 60 children to model. Just before the show we run a creative workshop, teach the children some dance moves and some of the older children also have the opportunity to learn a routine of their own. The 45 minute show is set to music and is followed by a finale.
The show can be at 6.00pm or 6.30pm and finished early for the younger children to take part, or held on a Saturday afternoon and only needs a short lead time to organise.
“The children absolutely loved the show. One teacher said she couldn’t remember an event that the children had enjoyed so much. We raised £569 in total. Brilliant!”
How does the PTA make money?
You keep the entrance fee that’s usually charged to watch the performance, plus refreshment and raffle ticket sales. After the show the children’s clothes are made available for purchase and the PTA will also earn commission on all sales on reaching a set minimum.
An easy event for the PTA
We know how busy PTA staff are and so we provide the posters and model permission slips, trained DBS checked staff, the music, and of course all the clothing. All the PTA needs to do is to provide refreshments on the evening, take the money on the door and provide 5-6 helpers.
