Fundraising Group - Parents


What is the Fundraising Group?

The fundraising group exist to help parents become involved in the life of our school. Our vetted group work together to fulfil the ethos of  'Aiming to support the school by holding fundraising events, which enables the purchasing of additional activities and educational equipment for all the children of Camphill Primary School.'

Who are we?

We are a group of parents who come together once a term to share fundraising ideas and plan activities in conjunction with the Principal.  Everyone is welcome to come along and you can join us at anytime -please get in contact with Mrs McMaster if this is something that would interest you.

What do we do?

We have held many successful fundraising events including a Fashion Show, Craft Fairs, Christmas and Easter Quizzes, an annual Bring and Buy Toy Sale, Movie Nights, Discos, Luxury Hamper Raffles at Christmas and P6/P7 Performances, Sweet Tub Coin Challenge, Guess the name of the Bear Competition, refreshments served at Sports Days along with our very successful annual Summer Family Fun Fair.

Fundraising total June 2016 - June 2017

We are delighted to announce after hosting 14 events in school, a staggering £5,957.93 was raised during this School year period. Thank you to everyone who got involved in anyway. Please continue to support the fundraising group in their hard work and dedication to the children of Camphill Primary School. 

What do we do with the funds?

The money raised at these events is entirely put back into school. Over the past few years the group has given the school:

£6,500 for a new Maths Scheme

£2,000 for a new Literacy Scheme

Funded the Healthy Breaks Recognition Scheme

Funded in 2016 a new Comprehension scheme

Provided £100 of Rainy Day toys for year group
