FROC

About Friends of Crowland

All parents, carers, guardians and staff are automatically members of Friends of Crowland (FROC) and are welcome to attend meetings. Please don’t be shy; we would love to see you there.

We are passionate about our school and helping the children be the best they can be. Over the years we have helped raise money to help the school in numerous ways. Thanks to the huge effort from children, parents and staff we were able to raise funds towards the new reading scheme challenge. We have also been able to contribute towards each class purchasing an iPad. We are very proud of the results.

Essentially the money we raise is spent on improving equipment and resources to enhance our children’s education and facilities at school; however, FROC is much more than just fund raising. FROC is an excellent way to bring staff and parents together socially in support of the school also it is great fun!

Getting involved

All parents can get involved even if you have a small amount of time. You may be interested in a formal role such as Chair, Treasurer or Secretary or want to participate in smaller events that take place throughout the year. For example, organising school fairs, cake bake sales, selling raffle tickets, school gardening project or cinema nights, Not all event takes place on a regular basis so even if you have half an hour to spare there are many jobs that can be done to help support FROC and the school.

We are always looking for new fundraising ideas and opportunities but we usually raise money through events and initiatives. Currently, we organise the Summer Fair, Christmas Fete, Cake bake sales and Christmas cards designed by the children. If you have any further suggestions please email us at friendsofcrowlandpta@gmail.com please include your details so we can acknowledge your contribution.
