Friends of Glen Park Primary
We have an active Parent Association, known as the 'Friends of Glen Park' and all parents automatically become members when their child joins the school. You will be welcome at committee meetings, if you are able to attend, or you can pass your views on through another committee member. The Friends issue a regular newsletter, keeping the school community up to date with their activities. Minutes of Friends meetings can be viewed at the bottom of this page.
A copy of the Constitution is available at the A.G.M. which is held in October, when the Committee for the coming year is elected. We try to encourage as many parents as possible to attend the A.G.M. so that you can find out more about what we have been doing during the past year and where the money is being spent!
The main aims of 'The Friends of Glen Park' are:
- to provide a link between home and the school where your child will be spending the next few years.
- to raise funds to provide some of the extra things the children of the school need but which can't always be purchased using the school budget.
- to arrange social events so that we can all get to know each other better and to encourage a sense of community within the school.
If you have any ideas for social events or fund-raising please do pass them on to the Committee and we will do our best to get them off the ground. We send out newsletters regularly with details of forthcoming events and school news.
We are always glad to hear from other parents, especially with regard to our Committee activities, so if you have any comments to make, either criticism or praise, please don't hesitate to contact us. You can talk to a Committee member you know, or get in touch through the school. We will always listen. To contact a member of the Friends, please ask at the school office.
