We are a group of parents and carers who work with King William Street CE Primary School to raise funds for the school.
Our aim is to assist in making the children's time here enjoyable and make some money for the school. If you would like to be kept up to date on what's happening and/or volunteer your ideas or time to help us help the school, we would love to hear from you!
You can find us at the following:
Facebook at 'KWSFriends'
or in person at Coffee and Cake every Friday morning
You can get involved as much or as little as you like. We are all busy parents who understand you have stuff to do, so just get in touch. Throughout the year we organise these events:
Monthly Movie sessions for the children from 3:15pm to 5:00pm, tickets can be purchased from the school office at £2.50 per child (this includes the movie, a drink and snack).
Where you will be able to purchase delicious cakes.
Any donations of cakes would be welcomed on the day.
School Uniform Sale
This is an opportunity for you to purchase nearly new uniform.
If you would like to donate any unwanted uniform, please bring to the school office on Monday 19th March.
Mother's Day Gift Wrap and Father's Day Gift Wrap
For a small charge, each child can buy a gift for their mother or father.
If you would like to be involved in any of these events whether it is sorting school uniform, cooking popcorn and putting in bags or helping children to choose and wrap their mother's day gift please contact KWS Friends using the email address firstname.lastname@example.org or pop into Coffee and Cake on a Friday morning as we are usually there.
Thank you to everyone that has previously supported or continues to support King William Street School. All monies raised go directly back into the school.
