Friends South Marston Primary School

Thank you all the children, parents, carers and teachers for their continued support during the autumn 2018 School term.

It is always a very busy and sometimes financially tough time of year for many families, so we would like to thank everyone for their kindness and generosity this term.

Fundraising during the autumn term has raised the following amounts for the school:
  • 24/09/18 Easy Fundraising £157.05
  • 28/09/18 Quiz Night £201.57
  • 11/10/18 School Disco £355.42
  • 23/11/18 Christmas Craft Fayre £1,179.81

  • End of term Christmas Refreshments £94.55
  • 21/12/18 Carol singing & bag packing in Sainsburys £447.32
This means in total we have raised a fantastic £2,809.21!! An amazing amount of money, which will help support our children's education at the school.

Because of the brilliant amount we fundraised, we were able to assist the school financially in the following ways:
  • Class Budget contribution £1,000
  • School trip contribution £1,280
  • Climbing wall repairs £500
  • Christmas selection packs for every child on
  • the last day of the school term. £113.92
Looking ahead, during the Spring 2019 term, there are some brilliant fundraising activities being organised.

By popular demand, we will be holding another school disco! We will also be holding the very popular Mother's Day shop and possibly a quiz too.

Please keep your eyes pealed in the school newsletter and on our Friends of South Marston School Facebook page for more information.

Thank you once again for your continued support

The Friends of South Marston School.

The Friends South Marston Primary School are a voluntary group with links to South Marston school who work really hard to raise as much money as possible to support the school in being able to provide added extras for pupils.

With school budgets being drastically cut by the government, the role of the Friends is more important than ever. By raising funds we can provide the children with things that the budget can no longer stretch to.

1) We hold a termly meeting which everyone is welcome to come along to. We are keen to find new helpers with new ideas!

2) We would also welcome any time given to help out at fundraising events - even for an hour. Every little helps!

3) Sign up to Easy Fundraising
