The Friends group was set up as a way for parents, carers and families to become more involved with the school and to bring them closer together as a valued part of the Newlands School Community.

 

The aim of the group is to support the school, staff and pupils in any way they can, and to offer support to each other.

 

The Friends of Newlands meet in school for one afternoon each month. at 1.30 pm. The meetings run between 1.30 and 3.00 pm, however everyone is welcome to arrive later or leave earlier if necessary. We understand that not everyone has lots of spare time and there is no pressure to commit to every meeting. We just ask for one or two hours whenever you can. 

 

The group simply meet up for a brew and a chat.  It is also a fantastic opportunity to ask other parents for advice, exchange tips, find out about different services and out of school activities... the list is endless.

 

Those attending the meetings are very  welcome to bring their other children with them as we have our own room to use, and have a large box of toys for the children to play with, provided by the school.

 

As well as the half-termly meetings, parents help out at the school 'Fun To Learn' Days which happen approximately once a term.  Previous Fun To Learn Days have included St David’s Day, Bollywood, Chinese New Year, Enterprise Week, People who Help us, Creative Africa, A Trip to the Seaside, Maths Week, Tell me a Story and Active Challenge Week.

 

Our parents find the meetings an enjoyable and relaxing way to spend an afternoon and the Fun Days are a rewarding way to have a good time, get to know the pupils and staff and to support the school. Please contact the school office to check the date and time of our next meeting if you would like to come along.
