WHAT DO WE DO?
We are the fundraising committee for the school. We consist of a group of parents who meet on a regular basis to discuss ideas and plan events. We have great backing from Mrs Bowles, teachers and all support staff.
HOW DO WE DO IT?
We have a yearly schedule of events that include the Christmas and Summer Fayres, Easter Tea, Quiz nights, Discos, Film Afternoon and Gift Sales for events such as Mother's Day and Father's Day. We are always looking for new ideas for raising money whilst adding a social element to school life.
WHERE HAVE WE INVESTED THE FUNDS?
We help towards the funding of bigger projects like the investment in IT equipment and reading areas, saving for the running costs of the swimming pool and also treat the children to events like school discos.
WHEN DOES FUNDRAISING ACHIEVE GREAT THINGS?
Wenhaston Primary School is a great place for your children's primary years. Friends of Wenhaston simply want to enhance their primary school experience by giving them those extra special resources and memories.
HOW CAN YOU GET INVOLVED?
For the bigger events we need a small army of people to help out with stalls and setting up etc. However, we appreciate time is precious especially when trying to manage family and work life. If you can’t bake cakes but can donate raffle prizes then that’s brilliant. If you join the committee but can’t make all the meetings then that’s no problem. If Bingo isn’t your thing then not to worry, but bring the whole family to the Christmas Fayre!
ANY SUPPORT BIG OR SMALL IS MOST WELCOME
