Friends of Buckstones

Date of next meeting Thursday 18th January 2018, at 6:30pm in The Park Inn, Buckstones Road.

Our last meeting was on Thursday 16th November. We discussed the up and coming Christmas Fair, which is on Friday 8th December and we set a date for the snail race which will be Friday 23rd February 2018.

Thank you to everyone who came and supported the Trick or Treat Disco at Tara Leisure. We raised a total of £581.84.

Thank you to everyone who donated a Bags to School in November, full of unwanted clothes. We raised £98. We will have another Bags to School later in the school year, so please collect and save ready for our collection.

We had our AGM on Thursday 28th September. The following positions were appointed for the year:-

Chair – Lisa Hurst

Vice Chair – Kelly Kulczycki

Treasurer – Sarah Gledhill

Secretary – Catherine Mills

We raised over £8706.91 last year, which was amazing! We helped pay for the Y2 outdoor learning area.

Every Year we pay for the whole school to have a Treat Day. The last Treat Day was a Harry Potter themed day, with a magician, owls and a Forest Schooling. The children came dressed up and had the most wonderful day. They were able to take home their wands, spell books, peg dolls and much more that they made in the Forest School tepee.

Our aim this year to raise more money to enhance the Y2 outdoor learning area, purchase group reading books for each class and to help repair the pergola in the Infant Playground.

Thank you for everyone’s support and hope to see you at all our up and coming events this year.

Every penny we raise goes back into the school, which will benefit your child!
