The Friends Of Winchcombe School
The school has a Parent and Teacher Association (PTA) called the 'Friends of The Winchcombe School' who run fundraising events for the school. The group is made up of staff and parents of children who attend the school - to continue to thrive, we currently need more famillies to join us!
To enable events to be run successfully throughout the year, we encourage other parents and carers to join the group. This could be in the form of joining the team to organise the events, to support the organisers by doing small jobs when events are being organised, or to help on the day of the event to ensure the events run smoothly. The more volunteers we have, the more likely the events are run, the less time each volunteer is needed, and the more time the volunteers enjoy the event too, which is why we need you!
Events include a 'Christmas Enterprise Fayre' and 'Summer Fete' plus other smaller events such as non-uniform days, sponsored events and competitions. Money raised from these events goes towards equipment and activities we would not normally be able to provide, such as sound equipment for the hall, library books, IT equipment, minibuses and outdoor area play equipment. Please see our latest newsletter for how all money raised from the events has been spent recently.
The Friends also run fun events for the children, such as discos, which are very popular with our children and can only happen if we have enough volunteers to help run them and keep the children safe.
All parents and carers are automatically a member of the 'Friends' and we value the support given by everyone involved.
We have a Facebook page so you can 'Like' us and keep up to date with the latest information.
Extra funds can be raised every time you shop online by registering with easyfundraising and making all your online purchases - it costs you nothing and raises money for the school, no effort required!
If you would like to join the committee, to become an organiser, to volunteer, or you just simply want to contact the Friends of Winchcombe, please email email@example.com
We currently have no upcoming events planned - we are looking for more committee members and organisers so please contact us at the email address above if you think you can help!
We do not currently have a Uniform Sale planned.
We are looking for volunteers who would like to run this which involves collecting and sorting uniform and running the after school event. Please contact us by email at the address above if you would like to be involved.
Should you need any uniform in the meantime, please contact the School Office. If we have stock of what you need, we can provide for a small suggested donation.
