Friends Of National School
A huge welcome to you and your child to Friends Of National School — we are a registered charity that is run by friends and family of the children of the National School. We meet once a term to discuss new ideas or to arrange events, and it is an excellent way for you and your children to meet new friends not only from your year group but also the older years. We have different teachers come to the meetings, so it is a good chance to get to know the school a bit better in an environment away from the classroom.
We hold different events throughout the year to raise funds to help the school provide extra resources for the pupils or to support future school trips and outings that our children all enjoy.
By running social events for the parents/carers and children, we hope to provide an opportunity for us all to meet up with each other and have fun. We have regular school discos for the children. For Christmas, the children design their own Christmas card which you can then buy, and they also decorate a Christmas tree decoration which can be bought as a special keepsake.
We appreciate that people are busy, but we really need help from family and friends to be able to hold these events. If you are able to join our FONS team, or can occasionally volunteer at our events, or maybe you work for a company that can make a donation to provide a prize for one of our raffles, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll be in touch. We’d really appreciate your support as we have some great ideas planned for the future, and we would love to continue our successful fundraising of previous years, building upon it and making the ‘Nash’ an even better environment for our children to learn.
We look forward to meeting you and your children soon.
