Royal Wedding Event:
To celebrate the Royal Wedding, we will be inviting children to wear red, white and blue on Friday 18th May in exchange for a donation of £1 per child which will go towards our fundraising efforts. We will also be hosting an after school playground café on the same day so all donations of "Royal" themed cakes & biscuits welcome!
Sponsored Activity Afternoon:
We are delighted to tell you that we have WAY exceeded our original target of £1,000 for our Playground Improvement Project through our sponsored activity afternoon on Friday 16th March.
The grand total is £3,241.45!
This is truly amazing, thank you so much for your support.
We would like to say a special thank you to Laura Meakin for her amazing fund raising effort. Laura ran the GM Marathon and raised £450 for the project. THANK YOU AND WELL DONE!
- Our next meeting will be held straight after school on Friday 15th June and we hope that more parents/carers will be able to attend as children are welcome to stay and play in school.
- We still have a vacancy for an Events Co-ordinator and are looking for a Secretary to take over from Ali Dunican by the end of this year, please get in touch if you would like to know more about this role.
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!
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 (email@example.com)
