‘The Friends of Aldborough Primary School’ promote fund-raising, staff support, and parental friendship and guidance at the school. Fundraising is for the purchase of items which the school budget cannot stretch to and supports visits and visitors, funding most of our travel costs. In addition to raising valuable funds, the events and activities organised throughout the year are fun and a great way to get to know other families better.
In September a working party of parents and friends meet to plan events during the school calendar year. This includes the Christmas, Easter and Summer Fairs which are great community events. With the support of The Friends of Aldborough, money is also raised providing welcome refreshments during school performances as well as running raffles and Treat Fridays.
Many of the fundraising events have a child friendly focus with many children participating by running their own creative stalls. There is usually plenty of local community spirit too with various local artists, beauticians, florists etc taking part in events.
The Friends of Aldborough are an amazingly energised group who raise thousands of pounds each year, enhancing school life for all members of our community.
If you are able to volunteer your support to help the Friends then speak to the school office who will put you in touch with a member of the group.
