Who are we?
We are a group of parents, carers and staff who offer their time and skills to raise funds to enhance our children’s educational environment and encourage closer links with the school. All proceeds go towards helping the children. Funds are raised either by in school events such as film night, recycling schemes, Bags 2 School, cake sales and scooters and ice cream evenings or by community events such as fetes, BBQs, discos and bingo nights. Some of these we run jointly with the lovely people at the Leintwardine Community Centre.
Our main aim is to use the funds raised to enhance the experiences of every child in the school, from improving sporting facilities to extending the range and access pupils have to resources. In recent years we have bought new musical instruments as well as contributing to the cost of transport for school trips. We have also paid for visits to the school by inspiring poets, puppet theatres and creative workshops. Friends of School also pay the costs of the Christmas party for the children each year, as well as subsidising the cost of the Y6 leavers' hoodies which are presented with when they move on to pastures new.
We are aiming to raise as much as possible in this school year, as there are many exciting projects on our “to do” list! We have a calendar of events lined up which will be fun for everyone as well as raising money for the school.
I am interested, when and where do we meet?
Being part of the committee is not a huge commitment and it is very rewarding as well as a great way to meet other parents and have fun being involved in our fundraising events.
We meet regularly each term and we try to alternate between daytime meetings at the School and evening meetings. We would welcome new members to our friendly team. You may only wish to be involved with one event throughout the year or just come along to find out what is coming up. We welcome any ideas you may have for fundraising events or activities. Attending meetings isn't compulsory; you may wish to help out at events as and when you can. If you are interested in joining our email list for members of the 'Friends' please get in touch and we will keep you up to date on upcoming events by email.
