The Friends of Great Bentley Primary School are a friendly group of people who work hard to raise money for the school in many ways.
Most of us became 'Friends' because we want to make a positive difference to our child's educational experience and to help make their school be the best it can be!
We hold regular events each term for the children such as:
- School Discos
- Film Nights
We also organise annual events such as:
- Christmas Fayre
- Assist with Christmas Lunch
- Easter Egg Hunt
- Summer Fayre
- Organise Leaver's Hoodies/Gifts
- Adult Quiz Night
The money raised is spent on things such as:
- Playground/Climbing Equipment
- Sand Pit
- Stage in the Hall
- Lego Shed
- Lights for Disco
- Library Equipment/Books
- Miscellaneous Activities/Events/Equipment for School
- To subsidise school trips
We take care to contribute evenly throughout the school and our contribution is significant and appreciated.
We meet roughly once a month to discuss ideas and arrange fundraising events. We are always willing to welcome newcomers, so if you would like to join us please get in touch.
If you feel you would be willing to help but do not feel able to commit to being on the committee, then perhaps you could be on our list of helpers. The only commitment required is to turn up to the event you agree to help with. If you would like to help, please let us know by popping your contact details in our 'Friends of Great Bentley Primary School' contact box which is in the office reception area.
