Friends of Highweek (PTFA)
The Friends of Highweek Community Primary School and Nursery Association is a fundraising committee run by parents of children in the school and some of the staff. It helps provide all those little extras that enhance the children’s lives in school.
All parents automatically become members of the Friends’ Association when their child joins the school. These social and fund raising events organised by the energetic and successful Friends’ Committee continue to provide money for much needed facilities and resources for the children. Most activities are designed to be ‘family events’ but there are some that may be aimed specifically at a solely parent audience.
The school is indebted to the work of the Friends’ Association and all the parents who support our school. We would like to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you for such fantastic support.
What do we do?
Friends events take place throughout the year and have included:
Family Fun Evenings
Summer & Christmas Fayres
Through such events, we have raised thousands of pounds in the last few years. These funds have enabled the school to provide many extra and valuable resources for the children to use.
How can you help?
The success of the Friends depends entirely on the support of all parents, staff and the community. We greatly appreciate any assistance. This can be anything from a little time spent helping out in the background, to coming along to the functions with friends and family or by joining the ‘Friends’ committee.
Share your fund raising ideas with us, we are always open to new ideas and welcome any suggestions.
Donations play a very big role in our fundraising efforts. We are not just talking about the very important pound donation for own-clothes/non-uniform days, but prize donations for raffles and competitions. Maybe you work for a company who discards goods when they can’t be sold?
