The Corbet Friends Association supports school by organising events and activities for pupils, their families and friends throughout the year. CFA events are an excellent way to bring together the whole school community, raise funds to help provide ‘extras’ for pupils and an opportunity for everyone to work together towards a common goal. Each year the CFA hold various fundraising events, including Christmas and Easter Bingo and an adult quiz evening. They also support school by providing refreshments at many school events.
The fundraising initiatives greatly assist the school in funding many projects which might otherwise not be possible. In the past they have been able to purchase lockers for a whole year group, assisted with the cost of a new cricket strip for the PE department. They have purchased books for the languages department, helped refurbish the library and brought many items for many other departments.
At a time when all schools are affected by funding cuts, our school and pupils greatly benefit from the additional funds raised. The work of the CFA is more than ever! All parents can get involved even if they only have a small amount of time to offer. They look forward to welcoming new members and ideas.
We are all volunteers and there are many ways you can support the CFA including sending in donations for raffle prizes, helping out at events or just turning up!!
Please feel free to contact me or any member of the committee for more information.
