The Friends of Wicklea are a group of parents and carers who get together to raise money for the school by organising events and fun activities. The money we raise is used to fund equipment and activities which benefit all the pupils at the school and supports the curriculum. We meet once or twice a term to plan new events and discuss past events. All are welcome and new ideas greatly received.
Recent purchases include the wooden benches in the playground, lots of games for wet play, payment of the coach travel for yr6 trip, subsidising other school trips and materials for the past yr6 ceramic mural. Future spends include a children's author visit & school sports kits.
In the past we have funded visits from magicians and scientists, bought sports equipment, easy speaks, microphones and paid for school trips and Christmas parties. We also run fun events like school discos, quiz nights, cake sales, bingo, pamper nights and the Summer/Christmas fairs.
