Friends of Castle Primary School
Friends of Castle is the Parent/staff association at Castle Primary School. It is open to all parents/carers and exists for the sole benefit of Castle pupils.
We meet every term in a very relaxed environment to discuss and arrange events to raise money for the children and the school.
Over the past year we have had our Winter and Spring discos with temporary tattoos and lucky dips on sale; the children love these and have so much fun. We ran a stall at the Keynsham Town Council's Winter Festival selling sweet tubs, homemade cakes, miniature Christmas trees, plants and lucky dips, and managed to get in touch with Father Christmas himself who visited the children. These two events raised an amazing £600! Our Summer Fayre celebrating 50 years of Castle raised well over £1,000.
All the money raised goes back to the children either paying for activities or back into organising more events for them, as well as buying those items the school's own budget can't afford. Now the building works are about to finish, we will be able to start spending more of our money on play equipment for the younger children.
The children have WOW Days throughout the year which are paid for by the Friends.
In November we had a visit from Aesop's Travelling Theatre Company which involved all the children and they really enjoyed it, and we also bought the Christmas which brightened the hall during the celebrations.
Any help, big or small is welcome. Whether you are an ideas person, a cake baker, an organiser or a shopper we will have a role for you! You don't even have to attend meetings to be actively involved.
We would love any ideas for fundraising events.
We would love it if YOU could join us to put on those extra special events that enrich the school community.
