FRIENDS OF PALATINE SCHOOL
ABOUT THE FRIENDS.
The Friends of Palatine School is a charitable arm of Palatine Primary School. We are a registered charity, number 1005714. The group is made up of staff, governors and parents.
If you would like to help the school by joining in fundraising activities, raising money or volunteering in any other way please contact Nikki Shepherd on 07999475707 or via the school.
‘The Friends’ are always looking for new members or ideas to raise money.
During the course of the year we have held events such as ‘Games Night’, ‘Halloween party’, ‘Easter Egg Hunt’, ‘Christmas Fair’ and a joint ‘Horse Racing’ night with Oak Grove College. Over the course of these events we have raised £2,700. This money has helped pay for school shows such as Aladdin and subsidised school trips. We have donated money to various classes in order for them to develop their outdoor play areas. We have also paid for the fencing around the Forest School area and part funded the Forest School cabin. We are currently raising funds to help develop our outdoor play areas.
We are so grateful to everybody who helps us to raises these funds, be you parents, staff, governors or local businesses.
If you know of any local companies who would like to sponsor any of our events please let us know.
