Bridge I.P.S Parents Group

 

We are indebted to the Parents' Group for their £750 donation towards the new software which is allowing us to update the school website.  The Parents Group organise many events throughout the school year, such as , school discos for Key Stage 2, Hallowe'en afternoon activities for Foundation and Key Stage 1, Christmas draws and Easter colouring competitions to name but a few.  A number of parents regularly attend the meetings and work hard to bring ideas for fundraising together.  Their efforts greatly assist what we are able to do in school.  Recently the Parents' Group purchased six new digital cameras.  They partly fund trips, such as, the Key Stage 1 and 2 Cinema trips every Christmas.  They have purchased Golden Time toys and Play resources from Teachers' Wish Lists.  In addition, they have organised successful quality used toys and book 'drop-offs' in school, from which teachers have then been able to select extra resources for their classes.  Clubs, such as the Gardening Club, which can be costly to resource, but is very highly valued by the pupils who are members, have been greatly helped out by the generous support of the Parents' Group.  

When your child joins Bridge Integrated Primary School, you as parents, automatically become members of the parents group. So if you are feeling up to a challenge and would like to assist the efforts of those parents who already freely give of their time to fundraise and deliver extra resources and events for your children, come along and get involved.  The current Chairperson's of the Parents, Group is Mrs Carol Mackin and Ms Lyn Hoey.


A Thank-You to the Parents' Group

In recognition for all of the hard work the parents' group do to raise money for the school throughout the year, Mrs Devlin has organised a special afternoon tea on Monday 3rd June.  We hope the parents enjoy this treat as a small token of appreciation.
