Friends of Castor Church of England Primary School
The Friends of Castor C of E Primary School are a team made up from volunteers from the school community. Our members can be parents, carers, grandparents, staff members and also members of the wider community that wish to contribute their time. We organise a range of fundraising and non-fundraising events throughout the year. The events are valued by the children and their families alike, and help bring the school and the local community together.
Successful events have, in the past, included The Christmas Disco, The Easter Egg Hunt and Easter Bonnet competition, Joules Seconds Sale, Sponsored read for World Book Week, Summer Disco and Race Night. Additionally, funds have been raised through raffles, the sale of Christmas cards designed by the children and second hand uniform sales.
These funds have been directed to various projects across the school, such as new books for the library, Year Books for Year 6 leavers, chick hatching kit for the Reception class, Circus Skills Workshop for KS2, and a contribution to Year 2 trip to The Lion King. Our biggest project that we have contributed to in recent times is the George Stevenson Bank and Shop Project within school and an ongoing commitment to provide the stock that is sold in the shop.
The Friends are always looking for new members, so whether you would like to be a part of the committee (a commitment of a meeting once or twice a term) or get involved with organising for a big event as a member of the fundraising team, please let us know. Additionally if you can assist in any other way please let us know. We are contactable via email - firstname.lastname@example.org our facebook page, or in the school playground.
