Latest news from FAF!
Come and join us for our first Playground BBQ on Monday 24th July straight after school! Funds raised will be shared between FAF! and the Manchester Arena Fund.
Game Show Night
Due to low numbers, we have cancelled this event and we will discuss some of the possible reasons for this at our next meeting so that perhaps we can plan a similar event in the future which generates lots of interest!
Summer Funday 2017
Thank you to everyone who helped to organise this year's event and to all the families who came along on what turned out to be a very rainy day! In spite of the weather, there was lots of fun to be had and we raised £735.00 for the school so well done.
Literature & Arts Festival 2017
Thank you to those who attended our joint planning meeting for this year's Literature & Arts Festival (8th October). We shared lots of great ideas for our "Animals" themed festival and we will be meeting again on Thursday 29th June, 7pm, Infant School Community Room. Please join us if you can! THIS MEETING IS CANCELLED AS MANY PEOPLE ARE UNABLE TO ATTEND. WE WILL INFORM YOU OF ANY FUTURE MEETING DATES AND APOLOGISE FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE.
The Family and Friends of Victoria Park Junior School (FAF!) was formed in 2012 to raise funds, organise social activities and to link with the Infant School's Parents, Friends and Teachers Association (PFTA).
As with many schools, the work of the association is greatly valued both in terms of fund-raising and providing some of the "extras" we enjoy in and around school.
In recent years, funds raised through events such as the Summer Fair
and Spring Disco have paid for the Christmas Pantomime, Yr 6 Leavers' Gifts and the hire of Longford Park Stadium for our annual Sports Day!
This year's committee consists of the following
Chair: Nicola Body
Vice Chair: Shelly Quinton-Hulme
Secretary: Ali Dunican
Treasurer: Katie Athey
Events Co-ordinator: Susan Hall
FAF! also works with the PFTA each year to organise the Literature and Arts Festival, a wonderful event which brings families together to enjoy and get involved with all kinds of things related to books, stories, music, art and drama!
You can keep up with meetings and events by joining the FAF! Facebook group: FAF! Victoria Park Junior School. You can also join our email distribution list by contacting Nicola Body (firstname.lastname@example.org)
