Friends of Treales School
Friends of Treales School is our Parent, Teacher and Friends Association. We are a very active group, and we support the school by raising as much money as we can to enhance, enrich and improve learning experiences for the children. We have recently funded coaches for trips, contributed to paying for Little Voices drama curriculum, and bought a new focal point for worship designed by the children. We also provide those 'little extras' that make school memorable, such as Christmas gifts, Easter eggs and much more.
We also exist to bring families together within the school, because it makes sense for parents to be involved in the life of their chosen school. We have a series of events throughout the year which create better social links and make the school experience more fun for the children. Lastly, we’re here for the simple reason that we want to get together socially, meet new people, and have fun!
Friends of Treales School Committee
Friends is run by a committee who are all volunteers. All families automatically become “members” of Friends when your child joins the school. There are lots of ways to be involved and the more helpers we have, the more we can do. You may have useful skills, information or contacts that are new to us, and we love hearing fresh ideas!
The events for your children only happen because parents like you are volunteering an hour here and there to help support us. The more people become involved, the more we can achieve and the easier it will be.
Even if you have younger children at home, or only a small amount of time, could you come to a meeting, help set up an event, run a stall, help on the bar or serve food, marshal at an event, sell raffle tickets, distribute leaflets or design a poster? Perhaps you have a professional skill you could help us out with? You don't have to come into the school; some of our volunteering tasks can be done from home.
An AGM is held every year to decide the core roles on the committee. Our current officials are:
Chair: Suzanne Sugden
If you would like to get involved, feel free to contact us by email, email@example.com or contact a member of the committee directly.
Our big annual events are our Christmas and Summer Fairs and Fireworks Night. We also run school discos, raffles, party nights, Easter bingos and give you an opportunity to get creative, creating personalised Christmas cards.
