Friends of DPSMN

Every year the Friends organise many different events e.g. bonfire night party and fireworks display, Christmas and Summer Fairs, sponsored walks, school discos and parties for the children, refreshments for Sports Day, the summer show and the Christmas Carol Service and cake and second hand uniform sales.

Money raised at these events have paid for many items, including the school mini-bus, jungle gym and adventure trail, outdoor classroom, floodlights, hockey goals, nature and play equipment, sport equipment which includes a football strip and cricket whites. Keyboards, djembe drums and other equipment for the new music room have also been provided.

In the addition to the above items the children have also enjoyed activities funded by the Friends which include the Fens Falconry display, Animal Experience and a mobile planetarium.

The main aim of the Friends is not only to raise funds for the school but also to provide a variety of opportunities, for new parents in particular, to meet in an informal and enjoyable way.

The Friends have regular meetings and are always pleased to welcome new parents.  Dates for the meetings are sent out in the school newsletter.  Our AGM is held in July and again everyone is welcome to attend.
