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!
FAF! is also making a significant contribution to replacing the safety surface beneath the activity trail so all those tombola/raffle tickets, non-uniform days, bake sales, discos etc really DO make a difference!
Thank you for supporting our sale in December, we hope that you enjoyed opening your gifts? We raised £325.00 for the school.
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!
