The Annual General Meeting of the CHS Friends Association will take place on Thursday 30th January 2014 in the conference room at school, 6.30pm.
All parents are invited to attend and help create a committee for the forthcoming year. We aim to support the school in whatever way possible, whether through essential fund raising or providing refreshments at functions and staging social events for the students.
Please lend your support on the 30th and help us to help your children in 2014!
DO YOU BUY FOOD? DO YOU BUY CLOTHES? DO YOU BUY FURNITURE? DO YOU SHOP ONLINE?
If the answer to any of the above is YES then you could be raising money for your school – without lifting a finger! HOW? – by joining The Giving Machine. It takes five minutes to register and a few more to download the toolbar. Then, every time you shop online to place an order with Tesco, for example, you access the store through The Giving Machine and Tesco then donates cash to Crickhowell High School (your chosen recipient). It costs you NOTHING! Every time you shop on ebay, access it through The Giving Machine, they too will donate cash to school – again at NO COST to you! It’s so simple and such an easy way to raise funds for our wonderful school. There are thousands of shops now signed up to The Giving Machine, and it’s FREE to join. Every month there are special offers with The Giving Machine where even more cash is given to school. So what are you waiting for? Sign up today – your children will see the BENEFITS! HISTORICAL CHS Friends were founded in 1983 when the High School opened and are a registered charity (No. 702505). Standing Order Form, Gift Aid Declaration We exist to promote School-Home relations and provide a fund from which donations can be made to the School to assist all Departments with specific projects or equipment to benefit pupils. All parent/guardians of pupils and all members of staff are considered ‘FRIENDS’ – you are represented by a small voluntary Committee of parents and staff who meet monthly to co-ordinate fund-raising activities and discuss School-Home issues. The committee is currently: Jackie Parker, Pat Webb, Mary Toy, Sharon Lane, Nerys Treasure, Kathy Jones, Andrea Neeve and several other parents who regularly help with activities. All funds raised are donated to the School as agreed by the Committee – such donations have in recent years included: water fountains, sports fixture travel, maths equipment, computers, TV & Video, projectors, DT machinery, art materials, music equipment, sewing machines, science projects, Rock Challenge, languages materials, humanities equipment and many more – most of these simply would not have happened without a ‘FRIENDS’ donation. We can only raise funds with your help. You could:
- Give to the Gift Aid Scheme – any amount as a one-off payment – or by regular Bankers Order and we receive an extra 28% from the taxman!
- Come along to our various events – Racenight, Car Boots, Fashion Evenings and others advertised by flyers, newsletter or on the Latest News part of website.
