FRIENDS OF WILLIAM CASSIDI NEED YOU

 

WHO ARE FRIENDS OF WILLIAM CASSIDI?

We are a group of parents / carers who give up a small percent of our time to support our children’s school. We organize fundraising activities such as the discos our children love, and the fairs and fates they look forward to. This year we managed to raise the most money we have achieved so far, to provide equipment for our children’s education and enjoyment. We paid for all the play equipment on the field, the picnic tables, benches on the playground and lots more.

WHY DO WE DO THIS?

With the ever increasing budget cuts, the schools budgets are tighter than ever. This means that schools can no longer fund the extras they have always been able to. This means that our children will not get the extras that help make their education more exciting.  Without our help it means that the children would MISS OUT ON:

Extra art supplies such as T-shirts, masks, clay. Design and technology supplies such as the materials to make their own maze games. The experts that come in during science week to make vehicles that move with our children.                     The people that come in during multi cultural weeks that cook with our children, introduce them to things they would never get to experience otherwise. The chance to make food, sample fruit and foods they may not be familiar with.       Play equipment they use at playtimes. Picnic tables, vegetable gardens. The list goes on!

WHY DO WE NEED YOU?

Out of the parents and carers of over 180 children at the school, there are currently only 4 of us that volunteer our time to do all of the above. We cannot continue on such a small number. If we do not get more people willing to volunteer their time and help support us we will have to stop! This means that our children are going to miss out on the things they love. All we are asking is for is a small amount of time. An hour to help at the fairs, to help set up discos and if you are able to, attend out meetings approximately 5 times a year. It is not a huge commitment but it will make a massive difference to the school and our children.
