Friends of Sciennes School Playground Improvements
We are fundraising to enhance the playground at Sciennes Primary.
One of the roles of Sciennes Parent Council is to raise funds to support Sciennes School and its pupils. This year (2014-15) our main fundraising focus is the Playground. Events are held throughout the year organised by our Fundraising and Events Subgroup. Parent volunteers are always needed and welcome. Fundraising events are held throughout the school year and are publicised on this site and the Parent Council website.
We are also asking pupils and parents to get involved in fundraising out with the school. Could you organise your own fundraising effort? For example, a bake sale on your street, Hold a swishing party ? Get sponsored for running a mile or doing a good deed ? Have a dinner party and ask for donations? Have a craft evening and make things to sell at our Fairs ? Have fun and raise funds for a fun place ! Please let us know what you’ve done – we will be celebrating all your achievements on the school website!

We shall be running a raffle and a silent auction and we are reliant mainly on local businesses and parent donations for the majority of the prizes. We are looking for anything you think someone might like to win or bid for, from a week in a holiday house, use of a camper van or caravan, some local artwork, days out and event tickets to the offer of your own services in babysitting, ironing, cooking, gardening or sewing on brownie/cub badges! Get your thinking caps on and please let us know if you have any bright ideas. Please feel free to contact on this email address (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you think you have something to offer, or would like to discuss anything.
