Friends of the School
Welcome to Friends of the School section of our website.
WHO WE ARE
We are parents, carers and teachers of Chestnut Street pupils, working together to improve the school and enrich our children's education by raising money for extra equipment, facilities and opportunities that benefit all the children.
HOW WE HELP
The Friends organise activities all year round. Fundraising events in recent years have included; summer and Christmas fairs, discos, bingo nights, personalised Christmas cards and ice pop sales, to name but a few. The money raised has been used to buy outdoor equipment, pay for theatre companies to visit the school on a regular basis, and allow the children to take part in dance and circus workshops. We also provide donations to Christmas celebrations, and ensure that all Y6 children have an autograph book in which to collect special memories at the end of their time at Chestnut Street.
We get together once or twice a term to discuss ideas and plan future events. If a regular commitment is too much, any help you can offer is always much appreciated.
Come along to one of our meetings - dates will be published on our newsletters and on our Facebook group. In the meantime, you can email the Friends Committee Secretary who will add you to the group's mailing list to keep you up to date with forthcoming meetings and events.
The Friends offer parents and carers:
- The opportunity to get to know others and build great new friendships.
- The chance to contribute towards exciting events for the children and families to enjoy.
- The satisfaction of seeing great resources in school and knowing that you helped to ensure that they were provided.
- And finally, most importantly, we have some fun and laughter along the way!
