Who are we?
Every parent and every member of staff is automatically a member of the Friends. Driven by a small committee (new members always welcome) we raise funds to provide the children with extras that support their educational and physical well-being.
What do we do?
We run events throughout the year (Christmas Fair, Discos, Quiz Nights, Cake Sales, Leavers’ BBQ, summer events) with a working group responsible for each event so that parents can align their commitment to events which they feel match their interests, skills and time availability.
We also meet as a committee once per half-term to review plans for the various events and agree the funding of the extras purchased for the children.
Over the last school year the Friends funded: Additional Maths & Reading resources; Fun Friday expenditure; Sports kit; Imaginative Play Equipment and Digital cameras for the teachers and children to use in the classrooms.
What can you do?
We’d love to have you as one of our Friends so just grab one of us for a chat, contact us through the School Office, or via firstname.lastname@example.org .
We are grateful for any help and participation, and your children just love seeing you helping in school.
It is a great way of getting to know other parents and the staff in school, and a chance for you to provide input on how we can raise money in different ways and how those funds might be spent.
Thanks, in advance, for your help in working with the Friends of Chandler to make The Chandler an even better place for our children.
