We have had loads of fun in Friends this year, with lots of events for both children and parents alike; fairs, film nights, wreath making, raffles, breakfast, bbq, quizzes to name a few. And in the process we have raised loads of money for the school! We’ve paid the diocese capitation, are in the process of buying the defibrillator and more sports equipment, have supported school trips and enrichment, and have committed to continue to support the school garden project and new books for the library. So a huge thank you to each and every one of you who has come to an event, bought a raffle ticket, donated items or given up your valuable time to help. We really couldn’t do it without you.
Plans are already underway for next year’s events, and you are all invited to our AGM in September to share your ideas. Following parent feedback we are also working with the school to develop a way to donate to Friends via the website. Sam and Tasha have served their 2 year term on the Friends Committee so will be stepping down at the AGM and we will be looking for new committee members – support will be provided! If you are interested in getting involved, do get in touch.
In the meantime, thank you all again and we wish everyone a very happy summer from the Friends Committee.
