Why get involved?
Simply, school is one of the most important parts of your child’s life. Getting involved with the friends association will keep you connected to the school, teachers and other parents and allow you to take a more active role in your child’s education, through fundraising for that all important equipment that the school budget can’t stretch to. We always appreciate support from other parents, but there is no pressure to become heavily involved or to attend meetings. Every little helps, so if you offer to help at events, run a raffle, get a quiz team together, or just turn up and have fun at our fund-raising occasions we will truly value it. Having a child with additional needs can be isolating, stressful, sometimes challenging – but can also be enormous fun, exciting and definitely rewarding. Our parents association can ease feelings of remoteness; we aim not to simply raise money for the school but to raise spirits, morale and friendship.
