FoNR is the parent committee who volunteer to raise much needed funds to support the school. It is made up of a core committee, along with you – our parents and children, who volunteer and give your time to support the various activities organised to raise money for our school.
What do we do?
We organise a number of events including social gatherings. Examples of this include:
• Rigfest – Summer Festival
• Christmas Fair
• Valentines Disco
• Parent’s Quiz Night
• The Yorkshire Warrior (a gruelling run/obstacle challenge)
• Coffee & Cake Mornings
What difference do we make to the school?
We have helped in so many ways; from replenishing the school library to buying classroom equipment and games. FoNR also help out with the cost of trips, visit and activities funding the transport costs for Key Stage 2 swimming lessons and subsidising both residential and day trips throughout the school. Our current target is to help our school raise money for playground improvements and new playing surfaces.
The great thing is we try to have fun whilst we do it and it’s a really nice way for everyone, parents, teachers and children to come together, make new friends and make a difference to our school. It’s not only fundraising – we also support school events for example providing refreshments at school productions and Sports Day.
New ideas are always welcome and willing volunteers to help us run all of these events are absolutely crucial.
