Welcome to the Friends of St George's page!

 

The Friends team aim to provide the children of St George's with extra opportunities, which can not be covered by the school's budget, by creating exciting fundraising activities and events. 

 

Friends of St George’s would like to thank parents for supporting our fundraising events last year. With the help of the parents on our Friends team we supported school concerts, sports events, held the Christmas and Summer fayres, organised bingo and other events throughout the year to raise money for your children.

 

This year, with your support, we raised a huge £1686 in total!

We have used the money you have donated to;

  • purchase story sacks, create an interesting reading hut on the playground and buy reading materials for the whole school to enjoy
  • buy new bikes for Foundation and Nursery children to use in their outdoor area
  • contribute money towards class trips, whole school and residential trips making the cost more affordable for you

We always welcome new volunteers to join our friendly team. Can you spare a few hours a term to help raise money to help the children of our school? We meet once/twice a term, after school, to plan fundraising events. We send out a text to all parents before each meeting. 

 

This year we are busy coming up with new and exciting events for you to enjoy. We regularly include our Friends team updates on Dragon news, the school newsletter. Soon we will be launching our own Facebook group, which will give you information of our events and keep you up to date with how we use your donations. Other Friends of St George's information can be found on Dragon news and we now have a team notice board near the school gates. If you would like any other information, please pop in to see me.

 

On behalf of the Friends of St George’s team, I thank you for your support.
