The Friends of Melsonby School

We are privileged to have a thriving and very successful association, composed of parents, friends of the school and teaching staff, which exists to encourage liaison and co-operation between home and school, and also to support the school in fund-raising activities.

Money raised by The Friends is used in a variety of way to buy new equipment or resources to enhance the children's educational experience and the school facilities - the little extras that the school budget could simply not meet.

Funds from The Friends has recently been used to:

  •     Pay for coach travel to several school trips -  including Bolton Castle and RSPB Centre Saltholme.
  •     Theatre trip to the Horrible Science Stage show.
  •     Renew and extend books for the School Library books.
  •     Purchase new reading books - enhancing the material available for pupils.
  •     Multi Sports Coaching for the whole school.
  •     A digital camera for each class, which the children and staff use on an almost daily basis.

The Friends have several fundraising events throughout the school year including Bag 2 School, Christmas cards designed by your child, flower arranging evening, but our two main fundraising events are the Duck Race (which involves the whole village) and the Autumn Fair.

But not all of The Friends events are run as fundraisers, each year The Friends fund and organise the Christmas Party for the younger children with party tea, games, dancing and a very special visitor to deliver a gift for each child. The older children have a disco in the evening.

All parents and members of the school community are encouraged to get involved, even if they only have a small amount of time available we can always find a use for an extra pair of hands. New members are always welcome, details of our meetings are always displayed on our notice board in school and letters go out to every family.
