Who are the Friends of Hallgate Primary School?
The Friends of Hallgate Primary School are made up of parents/carers of the school who organise fund raising and social events throughout the year to benefit everyone within the school. The money raised is often spent on items and activities that the school wouldn’t otherwise have the money for.
Regular events include Discos for the children, Christmas & Summer Fairs, Fashion Shows, Christmas Surprise Shops and Mothers Day & Fathers Day Surprise Shops.
We hold meetings approximately every half term, in school. Our meetings are very informal and fresh faces are always welcome as are any new fund raising ideas. By joining and/or supporting the Friends it gives a great opportunity for parents and carers to become more involved, meet others and have fun.
We hope you will be able to join us.
The money raised over the past two years has been put towards the new climbing equipment on the field. Our events meant that over half of the cost of this equipment was funded by your generosity at our events.
The remaining money raised was spent on astroturf replacing the grass area on the KS1 playground, which will enable our children to play on this area all year round.
Fundraising Mission 2019/2020
Following the successful fundraising for our new library, which was opened in February, Mrs Shiels and the school staff would now like us to fundraise during this school year to develop our outdoor areas for all the children in the school to use and enjoy.
We will also be giving each class an amount to help subsidise school visits and again paying for the Year 6 leaving event and t shirts.
Thank you to everyone who attended our recent meetings. We have some great events planned. If you are able to help at any event, have any ideas or would like to join the committee please contact Claire in the school office.
We are pleased to announce Friends of Hallgate Primary School was entered on the Register of Charities on 15 March 2019. Registered Charity Number 1182483.
