We held our Autumn Fair on Friday 17th November 2017.  It was a fantastic event with lots of stalls with lovely items to buy and games to play!  Each class organised their own stalls and the children helped run them; lots of born sales-people. 😁 

The event raised a fantastic £585!! 😄😄 So we would like to send out a massive THANK YOU to everyone who visited our fair, or supported it in some way.  Here are some pictures of the older children enjoying the fair before it opened to parents at 3.30pm.

Welcome to the Friends of Awsworth

Primary & Nursery School!                           

 

We are a group of parents, carers and school staff who organise a wide variety of fund raising events for the children in school.

 

‘The Friends’ was formed in March 2010 and our programme of events has steadily grown since then. 

 

Our aim is to come up with ideas that are fun and exciting for both children and adults to enjoy.  In doing so, and with the on-going support from parents, we are able to raise money which benefits all the children at Awsworth. 

 

 

Here are some of our past events

  • School discos
  • Serving refreshments at Parents’ Evening/Sports Day/School productions
  • Summer Fair
  • Autumn Fair
  • Camping nights
  • Ice cream Fridays
  • Fashion Show and Clothes Sale
  • Cinema Evening
  • Cake Stall
  • Supporting the Awsworth 5K Fun Run
  • And many more…!

 

During the year we keep parents/carers informed of our events diary and share how our fund raising is used to support the school.   Many parents now follow us on Facebook too!

 

Some examples of how funds are spent

·        Playtime games and equipment for use on the playground

·        Outdoor play equipment for the Foundation Unit

·        Easter eggs for the whole school

·        Funding theatre groups and visiting authors and illustrators

·        Souvenir photo books for Year 6 leavers

·        Magic show for Foundation children

·        Souvenir coins to celebrate the Queen’s Silver Jubliee

·        Bikes, scooters and helmets for our Foundation children

·        To name just a few…!

 

All of the above has only been achieved with the support, enthusiasm and generosity of our parents/carers and school management, which we are so grateful for.

 

The friends of Awsworth Primary and Nursery School are always ready to welcome new ideas, new members or simply offers of help from anyone who would like to support us during a specific event.
