Friends of Court Fields

After a period of reforming and regrouping, the newly named parents and teachers association has finally re-launched itself as The Friends of Court Fields School.

We have a 2-3 year plan to introduce various schemes which will improve the school site and offer all pupils the opportunity to try various recreational and educational activities.  We plan to create an environment which allows the pupils to fully use the school site in ways which will make the school day more enjoyable, as well as fun!!

The Friends of Court Fields School will be supporting the school’s Reward and Award system and providing badges for achievements.  Our first exciting project is to create a raised bed garden within the school grounds.  Each area will represent a school House.  The pupils will be involved in the design of the project as well as maintaining the gardens on a daily basis.  Again, the Friends will be providing various awards for participation and achievement.

The Friends are raising the money for the building works and the provision of the gardening tools. Yearly fundraising or sponsorship will enable the project to be sustained over time for future students to enjoy.

We welcome any parents who would either like to join this worthwhile committee or would like to sponsor any of our future projects.

Future projects that have been discussed are:

Creating a courtyard garden which can be accessed by students

  1. Introducing animals to the school to help with learning and confidence building
  2. Looking at improving sites around the school to soften the buildings and create a more usable and aesthetically pleasing environment.

Fundraising will take place throughout the year and we look forward to your support.  If you have any ideas with regards to fundraising we would be happy to hear from you.

From Two Little Ducks to Two Hundred Pounds!

Warm and cheerful echoes of Two Little Ducks could be heard around Court Fields School on a chilly evening last night when nearly two hundred pounds was raised during a fun-packed Bingo Night!

2 of 3 - Bingo 26 Feb 2015The night, held on 26 February and organised by the newly re-launched Friends of Court Fields School, proved a complete success. It was attended by some fifty people ranging from enthusiastic younger bingo novices (School Year 7s) through to some evidently more seasoned bingo players from Wellington’s professional circuit! On offer were fantastic seasonal Line and Full House Prizes through to the night’s Top Prize which was a whopping £50 voucher for a local supermarket. Almost every table proved an eventual winner after the night’s Raffle which was held during a break amid the groovy soundtrack of Guardians of The Galaxy. Refreshments and free biscuits were also on offer at the charmingly named Doug’s Café. Concentrations levels were so high that Doug was even seen to be offering table service!
