Who are we?
MEG are a group of parent helpers who, alongside staff, assist school with the organising and running of events to raise funds for the school.
What do we do?
Over the school year, we plan to co-ordinate the following events:
Mother’s Day Hamper Draw
Father’s Day Bucket Draw
Refreshments & Raffle for school events including sports day and class performances.
How much money has been raised and what is it spent on?
Over the last school year we raised £3,769.
These vital funds support the school and benefit the children by providing additional resources and enrichment opportunities.
Last year, the school has spent the money on the following:
Subsidising the whole school trip to the Christmas Panto at The Palace Theatre
Equipment and a chef for cookery lessons
Wet play games for each class
Foundation Class's balance bikes and outdoor play equipment
A new PE Store and Playground Equipment Store
How do I get involved?
All parents/carers of children at the school are very welcome to join in and are vital for the running of events. MEG meet once a term, usually on a Monday evening at 7.30pm in The Ferry Inn near school. This is idea generating time so we would love to see some new faces with new fundraising ideas.
We also allocate tasks from this meeting so even if you can’t come to the meeting but would be keen to help with any events do please let us know so we can include you on circulation emails asking for helpers for specific activities.
We have lots of parents who help out at some, all or just one of the events but we always welcome more helpers.
All parents at the school generously give donations of cakes, raffle prizes etc. that help us to put on these events. Without these donations and their ongoing support by attending the events, spending money, buying tickets etc. we would not be able to successfully raise these funds. Thank you to all who help, it is much appreciated.
