The Friends of The Dassett are a dedicated group of parents who meet once a term to help fundraise for the benefit of the pupils at The Dassett Church of England Primary School. They are really enthusiastic and regularly organise fun events for the whole family to attend such as a Christmas Fayre, School Discos, Photography Competitions, Cake, Plant and Book Sales, Comedy nights, Quizzes and Summer Fayres.
The funds that they raise are spent directly on the school and its pupils. Past examples of where this money has been spent include coaches for all school trips, taking the whole school to the pantomime at Christmas, ICT equipment, books, Play equipment, tennis lessons, special experiences such as drum and dance workshops, setting up after-school clubs and in school theatre performances, to name but a few! Their contribution is really important in making children’s learning and experiences exciting, motivating and truly memorable.
We welcome your help
The more volunteers we have, the less work there is for each of us to do. Everybody is welcome, our meetings are at school on a weekday evening at least once a term and are publicised in the weekly school newsletter 'In Touch' and on www.thedassettprimary.co.uk. Please come along and see what little you have to do to make a real difference to your child’s education. Each year we ask for a parent to volunteer as a representative for each class, including Reception.
What you get out of it
Apart from augmenting the quality of your children’s education, joining in with The Friends is fun, and is a great way to get to know more people in your local community.
