The biennial Christmas fair is a lot of fun with plenty of games, treats and prizes. Mr Burbank got several pies in the face!
Other annual activities on offer are making gifts for Mother’s day and Father’s day which the children enjoy enormously. They are always so excited to take home something they have made for Mum or Dad.
We have run collections of all sorts of things from coppers to clothes in order to raise more money for the children.
Games night, bingo and movie night are some of the other events in recent years. Do you know your Mr Potato Head from your Mr Stink? How tall can you make your marshmallow and spaghetti structure and, more importantly, will it hold?
Having enjoyed ourselves raising all this extra funding, we then get to spend it enjoying ourselves too. So where has the money been spent recently….
The Friends of Stockham pay for the coaches to take all the children to the Christmas pantomime – “Oh yes they do!”
On sports day, it’s Friends of Stockham who makes sure the children get their medal and iced treat after all their hard work.
The refurbishment of the library, upgrade of the playground equipment and experiences inside the explorer dome were all made possible due to the additional contributions from Friends of Stockham.
By our very nature, our members move on as their children leave school so we are ALWAYS on the lookout for new members.
