Pleased to meet you - We are...
As we are now becoming more involved within school we felt that you all deserved to know a little bit more about us, so here goes.
We are currently made up of 4 members; Jane, Claire F, Karen and Claire H.
We are all parents of children who attend NFJI and together we make up a voluntary organisation of which is called 'Friends of Featherstone'. Our aim and purpose is to raise funds for the benefit of the children within the school and not forgetting the future generations to come.
We have been involved events such as;
- Various Discos
- Featherstone Christmas light switch on
- School performances
- Sports days
- Snail race evening
- Year 6 Leavers party and Trip
- DVD Evenings
- Tea-Towel Creation
- Afternoon Tea (various editions)
- Featherstone Gala Day
- Family Quiz Nights
- Ladies Pamper evenings
With the various events being so successful we have been able to fund lots of exciting things for the children at school, such as;
- PTA Membership
- Santa hats for the Choir
- School Gazebo used for all events
- Personalised School Banner
- DVD License
- Year 6 End of Year Autograph Books
- Year 6 end of Year Trip Coach
- Year 6 Leavers Cake
- KS2 Trim Trail
- Foundation Stage Bicycles
- Dictionaries for Year 6 leavers
As with any organisation, we are always looking for new, committed volunteers who can spare some time to help us with upcoming events or to bring along some fresh ideas to help with the fundraising.
We hope this has given you a little more of an insight of who we are and how we contribute to the school. Keep looking out for new events on the websites home page and calendar, where you will be able to find all the necessary information you may need.
See you all soon at NFJI's next event!
