We are a group of parents who get together to organise and run fundraising events for the school.
The funds that we raise are used to buy those 'little extras' that the school budget doesn't stretch to.
We are a very friendly and approachable bunch and extend a warm welcome to anyone thinking of joining us. There is no pressure to attend all meetings or events and many of our meetings are held informally, at the school gate, by email or text! We all just do what we can and it all adds up to a lot of fun and a lot of funds! It is also a great way to get to know new people and to get involved with your child's school life.
What have we funded with the money we have raised?
