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 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.
FROGS support the school throughout the year with a wide range of events and activities. They include:
• Easter Fair
• Summer BBQ
• Christmas Fair
• Class Bun Sales
• Hot Hair Day
• Mother and Father Day Stall
• Bags 2 School
• Non-uniform Days
• Story Nights
FROGS also run a Business Directory where friends and family can advertise their own business for a small annual fee. The Directory goes out to the children twice a year and to Sicklinghall School. It is a great way to advertise your business and support school.
FROGS funds raised are used to subsidise:
- School trips
- Leaver hoodies
- Seasonal gifts.
FROGS have supported the work of the school in a number of ways by funding the purchase of:
- The refurbishment of our gardening area, now called the ‘Great Gold Garden’.
- Playground equipment
- New Playground Markings
- Brand New Audio Visual System for the School Hall
In 2015, FROGS funded the work of our pupil committees, enabling each committee to hold a budget with which they were able to make developments to their school. FROGS fundraising has also purchased funded our new playground markings and contributed to the purchase of a full PA sound system for the school hall.
All fund-raising activities are organised by a committee elected at the Annual General Meeting in October each year. Whilst the committee are central to the organisation of events, the help and support of each and every parent and carer is warmly welcomed.
