Friends of Castle Primary School
Welcome to the Friends of Castle Primary School's web page.
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.
So far this school year we have had our winter discos with temporary tattoos and lucky dips on sale; the children love it 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. These two events raised an amazing £600!
Coming up before Christmas the children can wear to school a Christmas jumper/top for a small, suggested donation of 50p and then we have a visit from a very special person!!!
Father Christmas will be visiting with a gift for each class, going into the younger classes to meet them. It's a very exciting time!
All the money raised goes back to the children either paying for activities or back into organising more events for them, so far this school year we have spent £1,900 on the below:
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.
We have also bought the Christmas tree which is standing brightly coloured and proud in the hall.
Upcoming events in 2018!
February - Film Night, with popcorn and drinks.
March - Mothers Day Sale - A selection of gifts are available to purchase for children to give to their Mother/Carers
June - Summer Fayre & Summer Discos.
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.
