NEILSTON PRIMARY SCHOOL
Fundraising Group (Support Our School)
We would like to take this opportunity to thank to those of you who have helped us raise school funds over the last few years. From those of you who have attended monthly meetings to those who have sent tombola prizes or made a cake, we have really appreciated your support.
The SOS Fundraising group raised nearly £4000 in the 2015 -2016 session.
£2440 – Christmas fayre / raffles / Christmas Cards
£840 – School discos x 3
£221 – Crazy Hair day
£333 – Family Ceilidh
Every penny of this goes back into the school, here are some examples of where the money has been spent this year.
£510 – school trip subsidies
£729 – P7 Leavers gift – High School Tie (‘15-‘16, ‘16-‘17 purchased)
£150 – P7 Leavers Ceilidh
£91 – Sports day medals
£370 – Fun day Assault Course and ice-lollies
As a sub-group of the Parent Council we meet with the sole intention of raising money for the school. It is this committee that organises the discos, Christmas Fayres, Christmas cards, school calendars etc.
Unfortunately, due to a number of committee members leaving when their child got to P7 we are lacking in volunteers to take on Committee roles. The recent AGM did not present us with anyone willing to take on the role of Chairperson or Secretary. If we don’t have any volunteers, then the group will fold and there will be no more discos or fayres. There will be no subsidies for school trips and our children will be the ones to suffer. They love the discos, they love trips, these are the things that they will remember when they leave. It would be such a shame if we couldn’t run them anymore.
We are asking you to get involved, we desperately need help. A committee role is only for 9 months and there’ll be support from a great team. We generally meet 7 or 8 times over the academic year.
If you are interested, please fill out the form overleaf and hand it back into the school.
If you have any further questions please feel free to contact us through the school email Schoolmail@neilston.e-renfrew.sch.uk Marking it FAO: SOS/Fundraising group.
We look forward to hearing from you.
