Friends of Holy Trinity
The object of the Friends as quoted from our constitution is to:
Develop more extended relationships between staff, parents and others associated with the school.
Engage in activities, which support the school and advance the education of the pupils attending it.
Provide and assist in the provision of such facilities or items for education at the school (not provided from statutory funds) as the Committee in consultation with the Governing Body shall from time to time determine.
In support of these aims we try to provide a varied programme of social and fundraising activities. In the past these have included barbecues, fun days, quiz nights, movie nights, book at bedtime, cake bakes, as new sales, Christmas card sales and our Christmas Fayre. All contribute to raising much needed funds. A large percentage of money raised has gone into developing the pond area, large play equipment in the playground and, most recently, classroom upgrades.
We have also supported the school in the development of the library area and ICT suite which has provided improved resources for teaching and learning. In the academic year 2011/12 we contributed towards the upgrade of the school cookery room and in 2015/16 to the painting and refurbishment of the school hall.
The ‘Friends’ is organised by a committee comprising staff and parents. All parents are deemed to be members and therefore eligible for election onto the committee. These elections occur at the time of our Annual General Meeting. Whilst volunteering on the committee, lasting friendships are made with other parents and the Friends endeavour to meet up socially during the year to develop these friendships. As we work in partnership with the school and parents, we value your support and ideas.
We look forward to seeing you at our future events and we will warmly welcome any offers of help, however big or small. Please get in touch with us care of the school at email@example.com. Without parents’ assistance, we cannot continue to support the school in these ways.
