“Hello” Welcome to the ’FROGS page’ ….
Allow us to introduce ourselves……we are the FRiends Of Garvestone School but we like to be known as the ’FROGS’.
We are a friendly group of people – usually made up of parents, teachers, staff and governors.
Each year we hold an Annual General Meeting. During this meeting members are ’elected’, by those present, to serve on the committee. We have a Chairman, Vice Chairman, Treasurer and Secretary together with ’non officer’ committee members.
However, if you are a member of our local community, have an interest in the school and would like to help us – you are most welcome to join – at any time. You don’t have to become a committee member or officer if you don’t want to. We would just be very glad of your help at our main fundraising events etc.
The purpose of our registered charity – no. 1004494 ’Friends of Garvestone School’, is to support the school and children by raising much needed funds to enhance the children’s education whilst attending our school. We fund resources and items of equipment that the school budget doesn’t cover, pay towards the transport and cost of school trips, contribute towards residential trips for the older children and generally help out when we can. We organise the refreshments for the annual Sports Day, hold fundraising coffee afternoons and raffles at Easter, Christmas and other times of the year. We have discos and barbecues and fundraising Summer and Winter fairs.
