Friends of Sandal Magna

Friends of Sandal Magna are the fundraising committee of Sandal Magna Community Academy. We are a group of parents with children of varying ages at the school and we volunteer our time to arrange different fundraising events throughout the school year. All of the money we raise goes towards the school. The money can be used to support any ‘project’ that the school is working towards (for example the new school stage). Alternatively it can fund items that the school budget won’t stretch to. This can include requests from teachers and /or children and help to subsidise school trips.

Our fundraising events over recent years have included curry lunches, numerous cake sales, Jumble sales, summer fair and children’s disco. It’s not just about fundraising however. We also organise the very popular “Sandal Magna’s Got Talent” show with the help of the school and the children. This is an opportunity for us to give something back to the children to say thank you for all their hard work raising funds during the year.

New Parent Members

We always need new parent members who are willing to help in any way whether it’s to share new fundraising ideas, volunteering to help out at events or even just to bake cakes. Our meeting are very informal and we meet roughly once a month in the community room where free refreshments are available.

If you feel you have something to offer or simply want to get to know other parents please contact one of us via the school office.

Valentines Disco

This afternoon we had our annual Valentines Disco and great fun was had by all year groups. The giant red balloons were very popular and several lucky children went home sporting "I Love Sandal Magna" T-Shirts after showing some groovy moves! I'm sure Mr Dixon will be posting pictures from the disco but here's one of some of the Friends Of Sandal Magna getting into the spirit of thing beforehand...

Summer Fair

Not long now until our annual summer fair. If you have any good quality items that you think would be suitable for the tombola please bring them into school before Weds next week. Hopefully the weather will be glorious! Don't forget to bring your purse / wallet as there are plenty of stalls and games to keep you busy for an hour or so. All proceeds will go straight into school funds to help pay for new play equipment and trips out for the children. We have bouncy castles, "Beat the Keeper", Splat the Rat, Raffle, Tombola, refreshments, Games, and the ever popular Stocks! Who will be the victim this year I wonder?????
