FRS - Friends of Rettendon School

 

Welcome to the Friends of Rettendon School, all parents. families and carers are automatically a member of the FRS and if you want to play a bigger part please come to our next meeting.

 

The Friends of Rettendon Primary School is a partnership between parents, carers and staff and interested parties to organise social activities for parents and pupils and to raise funds to provide resources which enhance the learning environment at the school.  The Committee welcomes new members, support and ideas, please contact the school office if you are interested in becoming involved or come along to a meeting or event.  The school values the support given by this organisation, without whose help, many "extras" for the benefit of the pupils would not be provided.  For more information look at our notice board in the playground or contact us - Our email address is: pta.frs@gmail.com .  You can also ask to join our group on Facebook by searching "Friends of Rettendon School".

 

The following initiatives are run by the Friends of Rettendon School (FRS), and all funds raised go towards facilities, equipment, events or outings for the benefit of the children at the school.

 

REMINDER!  We are recycling mobile phones.  However old your phone we can get cash for it. Please hand in any old mobile phones – they can go in the book bags marked for FRS.

 

PLEASE KEEP SAVING YOUR CABLES AND COPPER as we will run this initiative again this school year.  Last year we raised £267 in total.
