Please note: We have postponed the Sports Day and Summer Fayre to Friday 14th July. Hopefully this will give everyone the chance to rearrange so they can join us at these events.
Friends of Bernard Gilpin were formed in 2010 and are a group of parents, grandparents and carers of children who attend the school. We help in organising and carrying out a host of fun activities and events in the school to raise valuable school funds whilst bringing the community feeling into the building. The types of event we have held so far are: -
Christmas Fayres – seasonal craft activities, grand Christmas Raffle, tombola, toy stalls and of course a visit from Santa Claus.
Summer Fayres – outdoor games and activities, cake stall, bouncy castle etc
Jubilee and Royal Wedding Parties
Valentine, Halloween and Summer Beach Party Discos
We also help out in school by providing refreshments when we have events such as sports days, school performances and nativity plays.
If you are interested in helping out and ensuring that our children have the best school experience please contact Mrs Russell, Ashley Salkeld, or ask at the school reception for more details.
Our Valentine Discos were a great success and the children had a great time. Thanks to the 'Friends of Bernard Gilpin' for organising another fantastic event and our year 5 DJ's Lawrence and Tyler for playing some great tunes. Click on the picture.
The Halloween disco was a huge success – the costumes were fantastic, and the children were unrecognisable. Thank you to the friends of Bernard Gilpin and School Council helpers and DJ's who made the event such a success.
