Our main function is to support the school by raising much needed funds to enhance, enrich and improve learning experiences for our children and to provide the odd little treat which all help make the children’s Castle Hill experience as memorable as possible.
We organise events such as school discos, Christmas and summer fayres, virtual balloon races, colouring competitions and Christmas cards. Other ways we fundraise are easy fundraising cash back website, Amazon Smile, Toucan Boxes and our recently installed clothes recycling bin.
With recent funds raised we have purchased lunchtime play equipment for KS2, a permanent shelter for our forest schools area, sports kits, ukuleles, Year 6 leavers medals and our wonderful Knights murals for our school buildings.
We are a very friendly group made up of parents, TA’s and teachers. We are always looking for new members to help strengthen our team. We like to operate on the notion that many hands make light work and that whether you can spare numerous hours to help, just set up an event or just design an event poster its up to you, there is absolutely no pressure as help of any kind is so very much appreciated.
