Here is a recent email from Farnham Town Council
From: Lara Prior Sent: 09 March 2016 15:56 Subject: Thank you for supporting Clean for the Queen!
I just wanted to say a very big thank you on behalf of Farnham Town Council for all your help on Saturday at our Clean for the Queen event.
It was amazing to see you all there, especially considering the weather was not particularly favourable!
Overall, 25 bags of rubbish were collected on the day and Farnham is looking much tidier as a result!
We’re hoping for some coverage in tomorrow’s Herald – so watch this space!
Once again, thank you so much for your support.
We have a friendly and active PTA at Potters Gate School, better known as The Potters Gate Friends. Parents from across the year groups organize regular events to raise money for the school, and the direct benefit of the children.
In the school year 2014-2015 the Friends have run a number of successful events, for both parents and children, and have introduced a number of FREE events for families to enjoy. These events have raised over £17000 for the benefit of the school and our children. In this past year the Friends have used some of the funds raised to support the following:
- £6200 towards the installation of new playground equipment.
- Dragons Den event which allowed all 12 classes £200 to spend on a special item or trip.
- Gruffalo Picnic for the new entrants
- Purchase of Christmas trees for the school
- £600 per annum to support disadvantaged families to participate in paid school outings
- £390 to buy new instruments for the music room
- £419 for the Year 6 Leavers
- Purchase of new books for the school library.
We are very proud to have supported projects which benefit the whole student population. We are looking forward to this year's opportunities which will include the upgrade of the school’s library books and the creation of a new Art and Design studio for the use of the whole school.
For the easiest way possible to support the school fundraising efforts don’t forget to use the website www.easyfundraising.org.uk when doing any online shopping! Select Friends of Potters Gate School as your chosen beneficiary and every time you shop the school will earn money, without costing you a penny extra.
Do come and get involved. The fundraising work the Friends do benefits the school as a whole and fills those gaps where funding is not available to make the best possible learning experience for our children.
We look forward to parents joining in again in the 2014-2015 school year!
