Friends of Troon School

Friends of Troon School (FTS)

 

We are a very active group of parents and supporters of the school who help with fundraising and special events.

 

Some of the events we run have now become established as annual traditions, for example: themed school discos, the Summer Festival, the Easter raffle, Troon School’s Got Talent, a book for every child at Christmas and the Christmas fayre. We also support one off events and opportunities when we can. We have been involved in creating bunting for community use and enjoy working together for good causes.

 

We are committed to fundraising for the benefit of all children in the school and in the past we have been able to fund the following: a cooker and cooking equipment, outdoor play equipment, picnic benches, maths resources, activities for wet break, staging, reading books, prizes, visits by theatre groups and artists. We also provided £2,000 for the refurbishment of the school library. In addition we have been able to subsidise a range of school trips including the Year 3/4 residential trip to Delaware and the Eden Project, the Year 6 trips to the Minack theatre and London and the whole school pantomime.

 

The FTS meets approximately twice a term and new members are always welcome. Meetings are advertised in the school newsletter or dates sent out via Schoolcomms.

 

If you want to find out more about who we are and what we do please contact the school office. Our chair is Diane Chattaway and our secretary is Donna Jenkin. We look forward to hearing from you,
