Friendly Association

 

WHAT IS THE FRIENDLY ASSOCIATION?
Parton manor infant school friendly association exists to support our school by running activities for the children and raise funds to pay for extra equipment and resources that the school may need.
 
The committee is made up predominantly of parents, but can include anyone who wishes to invest their time in supporting our school.

We meet 2 or 3 times a term to plan events and discuss the allocation of funds, usually in the evening somewhere local.

WHAT DO WE DO?
In recent years we have raised money for school library books, a new projector and screen for the school hall, coaches to take children on trips, cameras for different classes to use and lunchtime play equipment.

Recent events we have run include a movie night, craft activities for Mother's Day, the summer and Christmas fayres, cake and book sales, school discos.

Our ability to put on events and raise funds for our school is only limited by the number of people willing to put their time and creative energy into being involved.
 
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
To get involved you don't need to be an expert in anything, but be willing to discuss ideas, plan events and get generally involved in what can be a very rewarding enterprise. Below are a list of areas that we do need specific help with, but please don't be put off if you feel as though your skills aren't mentioned as the lists are not exhaustive.  We cannot have too many people willing to get involved.

We need committee members who can specifically help in these areas:
Being Creative - planning craft events
Being  Creative - producing posters etc
Being  Creative - coming up with ideas for possible events
Having Good contacts - we need people who know people who could donate raffle prizes etc
Having Financial experience
Give time to doing all the little bits and pieces that keep things ticking over, for example making phone calls, writing emails and generally helping out with planning and helping out at events.

We also need people who can help at events without committing to being on the committee in the following ways:
Give time out of school hours to help sell cakes or help at events
Be willing to man a pre-organised stall at a fayre
 Be able to help set up or pack away after a fayre / school disco

Or maybe you have some of the following skills that you could offer:
Balloon modelling
 Face painting
 Kiddie tattoos
 Photography
 
 If you would like to accept the challenge to get involved in supporting your school in this way, please fill in the form below letting us know any way that you might be able to help.
 
 Thank you so much
