This year the new committee have run an Easter Raffle and organised sponsorship for a member of staff who cycled Coast to Coast to raise money for enhanced ICT equipment. They also plan to run a Summer Fair.
Meetings are now held by the committee on a regular basis to arrange, plan and organise future fundraising activities. Recruitment to the committee has been successful with a core of dedicated staff working with parents to enable successful fundraising events throughout the year. Parents are advised about meetings and are very welcome to attend. Events throughout the year have been well attended and profitable. They have promoted inclusion as well as curriculum and social activities.
