Who are the Friends of Moorlands?
Friends of Moorlands is the name of the Parent Teacher Association (PTA) of Moorlands Junior School. All families and staff at the school are automatically ‘Friends’ and we welcome parents, grandparents and carers from all year groups. We are a registered charity and our committee consists of four posts - Chairperson, Vice Chair, Secretary and Treasurer. These are voluntary roles, filled by parents with children at the school. They are flexible positions and can be shared. We rely on volunteers from all year groups to make our events a success.
What do the Friends of Moorlands do?
We raise valuable funds for the school by organising events. We want families to have fun and get to know each other and all the money we raise goes directly to the school. We have helped to fund the fantastic outdoor play area along with interactive whiteboards, new PE mats and even a new piano. Our past events have included Film Nights, Race Nights, ‘Make & Take’ (a craft night for the children where they make something and take it home), Summer BBQ and joint events with Friends of Templemoor. We welcome Templemoor families at our events.
How can I get involved?
There are lots of opportunities to get involved and we need as much help as possible! At our events we usually need people to work in the kitchen, on the bar and on various stalls but we also need lots of people behind the scenes - cake bakers, pizza orderers, raffle ticket envelope stuffers, the list goes on!
