The Friends of Goldsborough School - or FROGS as they are known - is an association of parents committed to additional fundraising for the school and its pupils. Every parent, carer and staff member is automatically a FROG. There are no subscriptions and no formal rules of membership.
Being a member of FROGS is an excellent opportunity to get to know other families and be directly involved in fundraising for the benefit of our pupils, enhancing and enriching their experience at Goldsborough School.
FROGS support the school throughout the year with a wide range of events and activities, where we encourage pupils and their families to get involved, have fun, and raise money at the same time.
Whilst the committee and class reps are central to the organisation of events, the help and support of each and every parent and carer is warmly welcomed. Parents should feel free to come and help, ask questions and give of their own expertise, helping out in any way that fits in with other commitments.
In recent years, FROGS have funded some great projects including new interactive smart boards for each classroom, classroom Reading Areas, amd Curriculum Enhancement such as The Mighty Zulu Nation and school pantomime trips.
Although the current academic year sets to be a challenge for fundraising, FROGS aim to raise a substantial amount to help improve IT and STEM provision, including new laptops. If funds allow, we would also like to help purchase musical instruments and additional sports equipment.
