frogsFRoGS

The Friends of Grange School known as FroGS are a volunteer group (PTA) who help to support the children and families of our school through organising events such as school discos, family quiz and curry evenings, plus fund-raising. They provide hands on help by serving refreshments at assemblies, and help out at various events throughout the year. They are a registered charity and work hard to attract funding for our school, helping to enhance our facilities.

They arrange regular collections from Bags2School, a company who come to school and collect your unwanted items of clothing. This is a great fundraiser and supplements our income by several hundred pounds each year, collection dates for 2017/2018 to be confirmed in the coming weeks.

All money raised is spent on items/activities which benefit the children. FRoGS subsidise class trips, purchase classroom and sports equipment, sports kits and have over the last few years bought a Uniform for the School Choir, high visibility vests for the children and two new notice boards for school and play bars for the school grounds.  Funding raised over the 2016/2017 will be allocated to improving the junior play facilities and  towards funding a Minibus for school to help keep the costs of transportation down and assist in getting the children to the many events held over the school year. This is expected to arrive January 2018!

FRoGS are always keen to welcome new members and more information can be obtained from Ann Walmsley who is the current Chair person, our Vice Chair Katherine Evans, or the school office. We really do need some new members so please do come along to our next meeting-ask Joanne in the office for details.

Why not sign up to the 100 Club -at just £12.00 a year it is a great way for you or your family or friends to contribute to the fund raising whilst having the chance to win when the tickets are drawn each month. (See Mrs Garnett in the office for details)

How does School Angel work?  

School Angel works with some of your favourite companies for booking Hotels, Holidays and Shopping such as Amazon, Argos, John Lewis, Boots, Next, Marks and Spencer and many more (see reverse).

These companies have agreed to donate a portion of their profit on whatever you buy to School Angel, who pass this on to us, every time you shop through the School Angel site.

It costs you nothing to use the site and you are guaranteed to get exactly the same deal on your purchases using School Angel as you would if you visited the retailers’ website direct.

Unlike other school fund-raising websites, which are run as businesses, School Angel is a charity, so all the profits go to help schools, and you never need to login, remember passwords or give us your email address. Just click in and out of School Angel in a second and School Angel will make sure your donation gets right back to us at school.

How to use School Angel?

Save our School website as one of your favourites – http://www.grange.cumbria.sch.uk-  then simply click on the School Angel icon at the top of our School website homepage.

Or even quicker, save our Grange School Angel page – http://www.schoolangel.org.uk/grange-ce-primary-school.html – click on any of the retailer icons and begin shopping!

Please remember…

If you forget to go through School Angel and have done all your shopping on a standard browser, are at the checkout, even payment stage of your purchases and suddenly remember to use School Angel – it is not too late!!  Before you press “Pay”, you can still go back to the School website, in through the School Angel icon, select the retailer you are shopping with, and you will immediately find yourself back on the page you were on before, but this time you’ll be going through School Angel and School will get the donation.

We are really excited that School Angel can help our school raise lots of money which we want to use for improving and extending our outdoor play area. So please remember to use the School Angel site every time you shop online and ask your friends and relatives to support us too!

It’s that easy – thank you and happy shopping!
