About Friends of Star of the Sea
The Friends of Star of the Sea work in collaboration with the school leadership team to raise money to support the school with various events and activities throughout the year.
Last year we raised in the region of £10,000 and this has been used to buy the stage and blackboards in the KS2 yard and the new trim trail in the KS1 yard as well as supplies for the school. This was done via fairs, sales, raffles, sponsored activities and 'own clothes' days. We get very generous contributions and donations from parents for these and for this we are very grateful.
This year is a very special year as we are celebrating the schools 50th Anniversary. We kicked this off with an amazing fireworks display at the beginning of the school year. This was a fun social night for all with an amazing outdoor disco, wonderful food provided by our dinner ladies and a selection of beverages. The evening was rounded off with a spectacular fireworks display that really kicked off our celebrations with a bang!
The children also had a treat when the whole school went to the pantomime at Christmas. It was a fabulous way to round off the first term in this special celebration year.
With the schools and governors we are now working hard to create a family fun day with our Summer Fete scheduled towards the end of our school year. This is a whole new twist on the summer fair and we plan to deliver a fete jam-packed with fun activities.
There will also be a special treat for the whole school to round off this anniversary year... but for now it's a secret!
We always need help at events and sales. There are actually only a small handful of us that make this happen. All help is very gratefully received. We need help setting up events and sales as well as manning them. Even if you only have an hour to spare all help is really appreciated. If you have a little bit of time then we would love to hear from you at firstname.lastname@example.org or drop your details into the office and we'll get in touch.
