Friends of Trafalgar

Welcome to the Friends of Trafalgar School

We are very active Friends known as the FT’s, we are run on a voluntary basis by parents, staff and other members of the wider community. We organise many events throughout the year for the children and some events just for the grown-ups. The money raised through these events is used to buy additional resources for the school to benefit all the children, both now and in the future.

Our fundraising over the last year has included several popular events, a Secret Christmas Market for the children, two Quiz nights, an Easter Fun Day, two Cinema Showings, An Auction of Promises and Summer Fete. We have also produced tea towels with every child’s hand drawn self portrait and further fundraising included Yellow Moon catalogues, Good as New Sales, printer cartridge and mobile phone recycling.

With the money raised last year we helped to purchase new computers for the Reception classes, a new play structure for the courtyard area and role play equipment for Year 2. This year we have purchased a new playhouse for the garden area to compliment the play structure and are now fundraising for some laptop computers. We also provide refreshments for the Trafalgar Day celebrations and sports day and Christmas parties along with a Christmas present for each class. Each new reception child receives a book bag and each child leaving at the end of Year 2 will receive a leavers bear.

The Friends of Trafalgar are dependent on Friends coming forward to help, donate and participate and is very open to new ideas for fundraising. We meet about twice a term in the staffroom in the evening and everyone is welcome to attend. We are very grateful for all the support given and look forward to another full and fun year of fundraising for our children.
