We are fortunate at our school to have RAFT that is and has been an integral part of the school community for many years.
In its time we have raised a considerable amount of money, which has been spent on equipment and resources to enhance our children’s education experience and the school’s facilities.
RAFT is about much more than simply fundraising. We exist to provide closer links between home and school and it is an excellent way to bring staff, parents and friends together socially in support of the school, working towards a common goal. It is fun too - just ask any of the Committee members or RAFT helpers. Obviously, as in any organisation, we have experienced some challenges but with the continued support of parents and staff, we have always succeeded in our efforts.
All parents and members of the school community are encouraged to get involved, even if they only have a small amount of time available. All families are automatically members of the RAFT when their child joins our school.
We are extremely conscious of the ethos and diversity of our school, and we try very hard when organising and planning events to respect this.
