  • Please visit http://www.jameswolfe.greenwich.sch.uk/fundraising for details on how you can easily raise money for the school

 

What we spend the money on

  • Last year we were delighted to donate £11,000 for playground improvements at Royal Hill

  • We support the Literacy Committee, Forest School and more

  • We pay for regular magazine and newspaper subscriptions

  • In the pipeline… two more outside play spaces

 

All the above monies have been raised over many years by the hard work of many parents/carers committees.

 

We need you!

  • Our Committee is small and we rely on your help at all our events, from planning and preparation to setting up, tidying away, shopping… There is always a lot to do to make these events fantastic for everyone

  • Do you have any fundraising ideas? Perhaps you can help in the job you do? If you are sporty, you could do a sponsored event for the school? Are you a DJ? A face painter? A magician in your spare time? We are always open to suggestions!

  • Remember it is the money raised by parents/ carers who support the fundraising events that allows the FJWS to invest money raised back into the school for the good of its pupil

 

Every parent/carer is a Friend of James Wolfe. Please come on any Friday to meet/visit the committee members, to get involved, share ideas and offer a skill or expertise.

 

We look forward to a great year and to the future success of the FJWS.
