The friends of gps
We are very fortunate to have a dedicated and loyal group - the 'Friends of GPS' - who work hard to provide a range of special activities for the school. They have also raised much-needed funds for the school, and we have used this to improve provision for the children.
Activities and Events ran and/or supported by the Friends of GPS
- Annual Summer Fayre and Raffle
- Raffles: Easter, Christmas, Valentines Day, and even the Queen's Platinum Jubilee!
- Securing donations from local companies - for example as raffle prizes
- Discos - Valentines, Christmas, etc
- Providing teas, coffees and refreshments at musical performances, and at Summer & Christmas shows, Sports Days etc
- Preparing our school Hall at Christmas - lights, decorations, etc.
