We are the Friends of Bowmandale Primary School, a voluntary group of parents whose goal is to raise much needed funds for the school, to raise the presence of the school in the local community and to engage parents in our school activities.
We hold fundraising events to provide extra equipment in and around the school, as well as social events, which our children and their families enjoy immensely.
If you would like to be involved with planning and organisation of events, or can help out at events, please either leave your details at the School Office, or contact Laura on 07875 124 451, or through our Facebook page – www.facebook.com/fobpsbarton.
Just before Easter we held a family bingo. It was so well attended that we had to bring out more tables! Thank you to our ex-chair of governors, Mr K Robinson, for doing a great job of calling the numbers and to everyone who came to support us. We raised £300 for the school.
The Friends of Bowmandale Primary School recently donated £1500 to the school to buy new toys and games for the children to use during wet playtimes. The trunks - one for each House Team - include Snakes & Ladders, Connect 4, K'Nex, table football and more! The children are already using these new toys to brighten up their rainy days.
This year, the children designed Christmas cards that we sent away to get professionally printed. It was a big job and we were incredibly busy right up to home time on the last day, but it was worth it to see the children's lovely cards going home.
