What we do:
We organise fundraising including sponsored events (dance-a-thon), non-uniform days, selling teatowels, foreign coin collections or Valentine’s heart competitions to name a few. Other events focus on giving children and parents the opportunity to meet and have fun outside school hours like the Summer Fayre, Christmas Market and the Autumn and Easter discos.
How are the funds used?
Funds raised provide every single child starting Kingston Park Primary School with their own school ‘starting school’ kit - a school bag, a PE bag and their first water bottle. We also pay for the school Christmas tree, Christmas-gifts for the children, pantomime for Foundation Stage, the school calendar, ice lollies on sports days and much more... Additionally we regularly support the school library to buy new books, the purchase of musical instruments, gardening equipment to be used in lessons and clubs and whatever other support may be required to enhance the children’s development and that of the school. Finally, we try where possible to support the teacher’s and parent’s suggestions with exciting new ideas for the school like the development of the outdoor area in recent years.
