The Friends of the School is a fundraising team made up off parent volunteers who help raise extra funds for the school.
The Board of Trustees determines the fundraising focus each year. They set targets for how much money is required and plan what the money will be spent on. The Friends of the School organises and runs community fundraising events on behalf of the Board of Trustees.
The Friends of the School meets at least once a term to organise fundraising events. There are also people who support the FOS with one-off help for specific events.
Fundraising events we have recently held include school discos, quiz night, spellathon, bake sales, raffles, tea and coffee at school events, sausage sizzles, movie nights, tea towel sales, and art calendar sales.
We are always looking for new and exciting ways to raise extra funds to continue making Newlands School a great place to learn.
We always welcome new Friends of the School members. If you are looking for a way to contribute skills and energy to the school, we warmly invite you to join the Friends of the School group.
