All about us.
Filby Primary School has an active and dedicated PTA, which is run by a committee of parents and teachers, who meet every term to think of, and organise fundraising events.
Recent fundraising events included: Summer disco, book fair, Easter egg raffle, book clubs, Christmas hamper raffle to name a few.
We are very lucky fundraising is well supported, from parents and staff who give up their free time to plan and organise events to our children who excitedly get involved as and when they can and to our families and friends who attend events, donate items, buy raffle tickets...the list goes on!
We have class representatives who are:
Ducklings - Emily Skyoles
Owls - Stefania Giangregorio
Woodpeckers - Sue Lyons
Kingfishers - Dee Whiting-Brown
What do we fundraise for?
We aim to raise funds to enhance our children's learning experiences and help them to have fun!
Thanks to many successful fundraising events and grants from The Big Lottery Fund and Adnams Brewery we have a fantastic playground and mini trim trail which our children love to use.
The children asked us if we'd raise funds for new playground equipment and we were delighted to help. Our annual Easter egg raffle was a huge success so the children were able to choose lots of new equipment. Lunchtimes are a hive of activity as they enjoy their new toys.
Our successful book clubs and fairs have enabled us to purchase lots of new books for our library. The children told us what authors and stories they like to read and we were only too happy to oblige. Developing a love of reading in school is very important and all of us in the PTA are proud to support the school. In addition to commission raised from our book clubs we use money from second hand uniform sales to add to the book fund.
EDP Community Chest
We were delighted to receive £250 grant from Norfolk Community Foundation and Eastern Daily Press towards developing our library area.
Current fundraising goal
The children have asked us for an outside friendship seating area, somewhere to sit and relax in the shade to enjoy being with friends, read, play top trumps - that sort of thing. We're obtaining quotes for an overhead sail and eating options. This will be the main focus of our fundraising.
