Welcome to the Friends of Haddon page
FRIENDS OF HADDON NEWSLETTER - Autumn 2014
Lot’s to tell you!! First of all, a huge thanks for supporting us last term. We raised around £1000 in the last seven weeks of term and we plan to add to that in the coming months. Having talked to parents, staff and children we are going to work to raise money for a slide in the orchard, playground improvements and equipment, tablets (please don’t forget the tubs for tablets campaign, Flora is currently on offer at Tesco’s so if we all buy two tubs we could really take advantage of this offer) and new sinks and taps inside school.
What’s coming up……
We are hoping to raise money for more books for the children to enjoy and to have fun in the process. We’d like to have a bake sale during this event so if you can contribute to this please let me know on the slip below.
Race Night – We will be back at the Punchbowl again on the 21st November. Races, games a raffle and a bar should guarantee a fun night. More information will be available straight after half term but please put this date in your diary. Invite friends and family, the more the merrier!
We need volunteers to help at the above events if you are free for any of the dates above and would like to get involved and make a difference please let me know. You can also help by baking cakes for us and by helping us to obtain raffle prizes. We particularly need people to help at the Christmas Craft Fair. It is going to be all hands on deck to make this a fun event for our children.
The Friends of Haddon is a charity fundraising committee run by parents of children in the school and some of the staff. It helps provide all those little extras that enhance the children's lives in school.
All parents automatically become members of the Friends’ group when their child joins the school. The social and fund raising events organised by the Friends of Haddon Committee continue to provide money for much needed facilities and resources for the children. Most activities are designed to be ‘family events’ but there are some that are aimed specifically at a solely parent audience.
The school is indebted to the work of the Friends of Haddon and all the parents who support our school.
