Parents and carers of children at Sir Robert Hitcham’s all belong to the Friends.
This group actively supports the school socially and financially – by raising funds towards school projects, outings and other added-value extras that make our school so special.
The Friends run a wide variety of events that are open to all, including: Film Nights, Quiz Nights, Christmas Hamper Draws, a grand Summer Fete, Children’s Discos and regular Cake Stalls.
The focus is on fun as well as fund-raising so everyone can have a great time. The annual AGM (held in October) gives parents the opportunity to hear how the money is spent, and for new members to join the committee.
An enthusiastic committee of volunteers from families associated with the school run the Friends. We’re always keen to welcome new volunteers, both to join the committee or simply to support with donations or offers of help at events.
Being an active participant in the Friends committee is a rewarding experience, and helps develop great friendships and social opportunities; we meet every half term.
The Friends are registered for both Amazon Smile and the Giving Machine - both are easy ways to make money for the school at NO COST TO YOURSELF. When you shop on line, just do so through either of these links (selecting the Friends of Sir Robert Hitcham's school as the charity).
If you’d like to contribute in any way, we’d be delighted to hear from you.
