The Friends of Holmer Green First School and Pre-School, are a team of parent volunteers. We are a registered charity who organise events throughout the year for the children, parents and community to raise money for the school.
We work closely with the school and meet regularly to discuss and plan future events. Together with the Headteacher we agree what we would like to fund raise for to enhance the school and make it an enjoyable and safe learning environment for our children.
In 2017/2018 we raised £11,000 for playground renovations. In previous years we have funded new dining tables, laptops in the class rooms and digital white boards as well as providing water coolers, on-line learning resources and new reading books. Our focus in 2018/2019 is to improve our technology and also support outside learning.
We operate a class rep system, sending you key event information via email. To receive our emails please complete and return the consent form. We also have a noticeboard near the school gates and occasionally we send information home via book-bag. Plus our event dates are on the school calendar.
You can join our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/groups/FriendsofHGFS/. This is a closed group for parents/carers of children at our school. It’s a great place for to share information and for all important reminders!
We always welcome new members and new ideas. We simply cannot run so many events without the help and support of the parents. If you have any questions or would like to get involved please email us at email@example.com.
