Friends of EPJS
Welcome to Friends of East Preston Junior School - FEPJS
Our latest newsletter is available here:
We are a small but committed PTA run by teachers, staff, parents and friends of the school, and we always welcome new members and ideas.
Within our PTA we organise many events throughout the year including regular discos, film nights and quiz nights. We also hold card-making evenings (which we sell at the East Preston 29 Market at Christmas and during festival week), termly collections of pre-loved clothes, and ice cream sales during the warm summer months.
We also run 2 major events each year: our Christmas Fayre and a Summer Event, jointly with East Preston Infants School. This is a lovely opportunity to bring us together as schools and also involve the local community.
Every year our fundraising enables us to provide vital funds that benefit the children directly. We give each class funds to purchase equipment, or books, to enrich their curriculum learning. We have been able to fund WOW starts to previous years, including author visits and the very popular Circus Big Top learning week, and also fund the coach trips to the Pantomime every Christmas!
Of course it also means that we have been able to replace the play trail, provide a new multi-use gym area, a buddy bench, a playground stage, IT equipment and so much more.
So, whether you can give half an hour of your time, or wish to fully involve yourself in fundraising for EPJS, we welcome you, and any ideas are always greatly appreciated.
You can contact us via our Facebook Page - FEPJS - Friends of East Preston Junior School, where you can also keep up to date with all of our upcoming events and meeting dates, or leave your contact details at the School Office and we will contact you.
