Helping The Friends
News and events from The Friends of Deer Park
Following the first Friends of Deer Park meeting of this academic year (September 2019), the Friends would like to share the following news and information with parents and carers.
Quiz & Chilli Night
The Friends are holding a Quiz and Chilli Night at school on Saturday 12 October 2019. Get a team (of up to 8) together or join a team on the night. Come along and test your general knowledge, meet other parents and raise enriching funds for the school.
Tickets (£10 per person) need to be purchased in advance - before Monday 30 September. Find out more...
The event (18+) will take place in the Main Hall. Doors open at 7pm (for a 7.30pm start) and we will be finished by 10.30pm.
The Friends of Deer Park are in urgent need of volunteers! The volunteers help out at fundraising events, normally serving tea, coffee and refreshments. It's an easy, fun way to meet other Deer Park parents and become involved with the school. You don't need to attend any meetings and your commitment can be as great or small as you can manage. If you think you can help, please email The Friends.
Did you know that you can raise vital funds for The Friends of Deer Park School when you shop online? It's simple to set up. Just visit www.easyfundraising.org.uk and register ‘Friends of Deer Park School Cirencester’ as your good cause. The more people who sign up, the more we’ll raise, so do tell your friends and family.
Just before you start shopping online, go to the easyfundraising website or mobile app first. From there you can access the participating retailers, which include Amazon, John Lewis, Argos, Next, Tesco, M&S, eBay and many more. A donation will be made to The Friends of Deer Park School. It’s free and simple to use, and anyone can sign up, including family and friends, so do share! All donations received will go towards enriching initiatives for pupils at Deer Park. Thank you for your support.
We have booked Wednesday 13 November 2019 for a sale of Secondhand Uniform in the school Design Corridor, 6-7pm - the same date as the Grease Taster Evening. If you have items of outgrown or no longer needed school uniform (in good and clean condition), please send in to Reception, clearly marked FAO Friends of Deer Park. We are particularly short of girls' shirts, but have a surplus of boys' trousers at the moment.
