Friends of Marchington School
What is Friends of Marchington School?
Friends of Marchington School is an organisation to encourage a closer link between home and school. The events that we organise not only raise money but provide an opportunity for families, staff and pupils to get together. As a member of your child’s family, you are automatically a member of the Friends of Marchington School Team. We raise money through different events that we have communicated to you in previous letters. However, we are always looking for new fundraising ideas. The funds raised are intended to provide “extras” not already provided by the school’s main income. Fun things that make learning more interesting and exciting. Sometimes funds will put forward for more mundane items but will help the children with their education. In the past the team have raised money to fund transportation to events, for software and for smaller purchases such as presents for Father Christmas to distribute. There are many ways in which you can help the Friends of Marchington School team, and we appreciate that you may not have a lot of time to offer. However, I feel that all the roles are really rewarding. Whether you can help to organise one of our big events such the Christmas Fair, or help run a stall for an hour, or bake a cake for an assembly or serving tea and coffee, your help is really needed and most importantly APPRECIATED. You can always support our events by simply coming along!
