Welcome to Friends of The Winns Primary
Who are we?
We are you! If you are a parent of a child at The Winns Primary School or a member of staff at the school, you're automatically a Friends of The Winns Primary member - your membership begins on your child's first day at the school and ends when your last child leaves us. Being part of Friends of The Winns Primary is also a great way of meeting people and to find out what’s going on throughout the whole school.
What do we do?
We have fun! Our main aim is to support the whole school community, bringing together parents, staff and students. We also raise funds to purchase equipment and provide facilities for the children that are not normally paid for by the Local Authority.
Calendar for 2018-19
Our aim is to celebrate and punctuate the school calendar with events, fundraisers and arts projects. Here are some of the events we have planned for this year so far:
Christmas Fair – Friday 7th December, 3.45 to 17.00
Community Day – Saturday 6th July, 12.30 to 15.30
Next Friends of The Winns coffee afternoon, TBC
We are now looking for volunteers to help at these events. If you'd like to make some props, bake cakes (can be any kind of snacks too), help on the day at an event or help in any kind of way, we'd love to hear from you! Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Last year’s Community Day took place on Saturday, 7th July. The sun was shining and lots of people came along to join in the event. Even with footy fever in the air and lots of families wanting to get home early to watch England play in the World Cup, we raised a fantastic £1,700. Thank you to the parents and staff of the Friends of The Winns for organising and running the day. Everybody’s hard work certainly paid off.
The latest project we've funded
This year we commissioned two mini-libraries to be built by a local carpenter. The children were invited to design a mini outdoor library for both playgrounds. All entries were developed into eight final designs and the school council voted on their favourite two. The libraries are now open for use in the reception playground and quiet area. Children are welcome to borrow a book at anytime.
If you have any books that you like to donate for use in the libraries please email@example.com
What can you do to help?
We need people who can spare a small amount of their time to help the us. Can you make coffee? Bake a cake? Count money? Listen to a child read? There are a huge number of ways you can be part of Friends of The Winns Primary – either as a committee member or on an ad-hoc basis.
We want to hear from you!
We welcome anyone who wants to get involved. You can help out at specific events, like our Community Day, or volunteer on an ad-hoc basis. We need all types of skills from running a stall and folding paper to sourcing gifts for a raffle. Go on, get involved!
