Funds Received 2017/2018
Another year of fun and fundraising is over and done with and it is with great pride that The Friends can announce that we’ve raised over £36,000 for the School. This money will be spent in a number of ways. We have pledged a significant sum towards to School’s application for astro-turfing on the front field with the aim of creating an area the children can use year round. We also plan to turn the area at the back of the School (over the old Andersen shelter) into an interactive play area to inspire creativity and improve the raised beds with seasonal planting. We will also continue to fund subscriptions to various online learning software including Twinkl and Purple Mash as well as providing funds for much needed classroom and playground supplies.
We would like to thank everybody who has attended our events, bought our gifts and volunteered to help at various activities over the year. Without you we would not have been anywhere near as successful as we have been.
Highlights for the children included the ever popular Christmas Mini Market, the sponsored Leap for Learning (bounce-a-thon) and various after school parties including the Bonfire Disco, end of year beach party and Snuggle Cinemas.
