FROGSS (Fundraising Group for Singleton School)

Charity Number: 1070148

 

Who are we?

The Friends of Singleton School is a charity fund raising committee which automatically includes all parents, (once your child has started school) and members of staff.  However we have a smaller ‘core’ group who meet on a regular basis to discuss and organise future events as well as regular ‘helpers’ who we rely upon to support our activities. The success of the Friends depends upon the support of the parents. We greatly appreciate any help, so if you would like to become involved please do not hesitate to contact one of the committee members or come along to one of our meetings.

 

What we do;

We organise fun and enjoyable activities for our children as well social events for their parents. (See below) Most of these events take place in order to raise money for the school, but our final, most looked forward to event of the school calendar,  ‘The Summer Ball’ is held not to raise money but, to say good bye and best wishes to our Year Six pupils and to say thank you to everyone for their support. 

Events;

After School Chocoholics

Children’s Film Night

Easter Egg Hunt (all children receive an Easter Egg)

Children’s Evening Disco

Ploughman’s Lunch on Sports Day

Evening Summer Ball

Evening Christmas Fair

 

How the money is spent;

The money is used to subsidise the cost of the swimming lessons, after school clubs, Christmas parties and trips. All Reception children are given a P.E bag and book bag paid for by the Friends. We also support the playschool with an annual lump sum enabling them to purchase equipment and resources for their little ones. Next year we will pay the travel costs incurred for the junior children’s residential trip to Little Canada. We also financially support specific initiatives taking place within the school. This year (2012) we have given £1000 to enable the purchase of books to support the school’s ‘Year of Reading’. We also provided funds for the fantastic wooden play train for the playground which the children really enjoy playing on.
