Latest news from FAF!
Please join us on Wednesday 17th January, 6.30pm-7.30pm at the Junior School. We are keen to meet new volunteers and happy to have your help no matter how big or small a commitment you are able to make. We will be electing a new committee with specific roles/tasks and will also need general members to help us to plan and deliver lots of lovely fund raising activities! ALL WELCOME!
Pathway to Learning...
Thanks to all of you, we have been awarded a grant from the Tesco Bags of Help scheme to build our pathway! After several months of collecting tokens at local stores, we came first and have been awarded the full amount so well done to our fantastic and supportive community-THANK YOU!
Yes, it's approaching that time again everyone and if you think Black Friday is a big day in the shopping calendar, you obviously haven't experienced the excitement of our own Secret Sale!! Our lovely volunteers wrap lots of fabulous gifts suitable for all members of the family and invite CHILDREN ONLY to purchase them for the adults in their lives. It's a great way to raise funds and to encourage children to think of giving as well as receiving at this time of year. The sales will be before & after school on the 19th Dec and after school on the 20th Dec, letters will be coming home soon.
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 (email@example.com)
