PARENT EVENTS & FUNDRAISING COMMITTEE

The Royal High School Events and Fundraising Committee

Our Events and Fundraising Committee (EFC) is part of the Royal High School Parent Council and we actively support parental involvement in raising much needed income for our school. Everyone is welcome to join us. We are a friendly, relaxed group with one clear aim: to make things better for the school community and its users. We meet approximately once a term in the school and all parents and carers are warmly invited to attend these meetings.

Our main roles are to:

• Focus on fundraising which will enhance the experiences of our children at the school
• Welcome and involve families in our activities
• Provide parent help and refreshments at school events

We fundraise by holding events and raffles (this year we raffled an iPhone 7), running uniform, books and equipment exchanges.

During the year 2016/17, we raised approximately £3,500 and in collaboration with the staff we were able to buy much needed equipment for many departments in the school. These items include: multi-purpose mats (PE), saucepans (HE) and CDT and Art resources to enhance activities in these subjects. The funds also supported facilitators coming into the school to undertake German and Geography sessions and workshops. New outdoor furniture has been added to the school grounds to make better use of the outdoor space for pupils.

We look forward to welcoming you! For further information please contact:
