What do we raise money for?
Our current project is to raise money to install a playhouse and seating in the Foundation stage play area. We recently installed a £15,000 play area in the KS1 playground and also jointly with the school re-furbished the Yr 5/6 Art and Craft area also at a cost of £15,000. We also buy Easter eggs for the children and provide a leaving gift for Yr 6 children.

How often do we meet?
Normally once every Half Term, but this can vary depending on how much organising needs to be done for a particular event. The meetings are held on a Wednesday or Thursday evening at 7.30 p.m. in the KS2 staffroom. We also meet occasionally at 9.00 a.m. in the KS1 community room to undertake practical tasks like sorting donations etc.
How can I get involved?
Feel free to pop along to our next meeting, bring a friend with you. We are a friendly bunch and a cup of coffee and a warm welcome are guaranteed. Phone the school office to find out when the next meeting is, or contact a Committee member.
