Friends of Farfield
At Farfield Primary and Nursery School our parent and staff association is called: ‘Friends of Farfield’. They are a hardworking group of volunteers who work closely with Mrs Sutcliffe (our Parental Involvement Worker) to raise funds for school.
Friends of Farfield have been very successful in raising additional funds to support the development of various areas in and around school. To raise much needed funds they:
- organise raffles,
- arrange and run the summer fayre
- arrange and run the Christmas fayre
- Mother's Day wrap - children have the opportunity to buy a gift
- Father's Day wrap - children have the opportunity to buy a gift
- Christmas wrap - children have the opportunity to buy a gift
These events raise a considerable amount of money which is used across school to enrich the learning of all our pupils. In the last few years Friends of Farfield have:
- bought over £6000 worth of new reading books
- bought sun hats for both Reception classes
- bought sun hats for the whole school to use when out on trips
- provided buns for Christmas parties
- bought a Christmas present for every child in school
