All staff and parents of pupils are members of The Friends of Earls Colne Primary School & Nursery through their connection to the school.
The Friends' committee is an active and sociable group of parents which aims to raise additional funds for the school by organising enjoyable activities and events for the children and their families such as the Summer Fete, Christmas Fayre and Fireworks display.
They help out at many of the school events, quite often serving refreshments such as their ever popular cream teas at sports day.
This year our fireworks display was held on Saturday, 4th November, one day early! It was an incredibly well attended night and the final count of funds raised is an amazing £6,758. These funds will help to develop an outdoor classroom for all the children to challenge themselves with their learning. A huge thank you to everyone who came and supported our school. Here are a few photos of the fabulous display, which was delivered by Matt from Pyromania Fireworks and taken by one of our Early Year's parents, Lee Birkin.
The Friends have provided various major items of equipment throughout the school, provided computer software to make DVDs of the school productions and their enthusiastic fundraising has led to refurbishment of the very popular school swimming pool. They also pay for every child to have swimming lessons in the summer term.
Friends would like to thank all companies for their ongoing and generous support for our fundraising events, particularly the following companies who recently donated raffle prizes for the Schools Summer Fete:
Greenstead Green Farm Shop, Ziel Designs, Olivers, Jose's Barbers, Aphrodite,
Colne Valley Butchers, Graze, Colne Valley Tandoori, Whoop Tea Doo,
Percivals, Abco Insurance, Earls Colne Con Club, Boydells Dairy Farm, Colchester Zoo, Colne Valley Railway, Layer Marney Tower, Colchester Castle
Messages and donations can also be left at the school office.
EARLS COLNE VILLAGE CAROL SERVICE
Due to continued bad weather, the school will not be participating in the Earls Colne Village Carol service tonight.
Unfortunately, due to sheet ice around and on the school site we have had to make the decision to close the school we would not be able to guarantee the safety of children and staff in the current circumstances.
