FRIENDS OF

INKBERROW FIRST SCHOOL

We have an active 'Friends' Association at Inkberrow First School. Our main aim is to organise events for the children of the school and their parents/carers and to have fun, but in these times of ever increasing cutbacks, our fundraising function is becoming more and more important too.

In the last year we have provided £1,000.00 to help replace the school's laptops, another £1,000.00 towards items for lunchtime play and £600.00 towards new books for the school, as well as smaller amounts towards other items.

We hold regular meetings, usually in the evenings and at school but sometimes at the local pub, and we always welcome new members. It's a good way for parents to make new friends and meet the parents of their children's friends.

As well as the annual events - Christmas Disco, Summer Fête and Easter Egg Raffle - we try and organise a couple of events each term for the children or parents or both. We're always open to new ideas so if there is something you'd like us to organise, please let us know and we'll do our best!

We have a slot in the school's Friday newsletter, (you can find copies of these under the Newsletter pencil on the website), where we keep you up to date with details of when and where our next meeting is going to be, as well as information in connection with forthcoming events. You'll also find these details on the calendar under the Events pencil on the website. If you would like to become involved but cannot attend the meetings, please speak to one of us in the playground or contact us on foifs@yahoo.co.uk

 Please do come and join us and have fun helping the school.

The next meeting will be held at the start of the new term.
