Greeting from Marc Thompson and Lisa Hindle who are sharing the role of FROGs Chairperson for this academic year.
As a member of FROGS you're not only helping the school by raising vital funds towards learning resources and equipment for the school, you also strike up new friendships with other parents and the teaching staff.
In our role as joint chairperson, we help organise fun and exciting events and work along side the staff to ensure all events run as smoothly and successfully as they can. We come up with an agenda for each meeting and discuss any future events which need arranging. We are always open to any new ideas for fundraising. We then work together as a team to ensure all arrangements are in place prior to any event taking place. All meetings are informal and last approximately one hour. We always invite all parents to come along to meetings as we are always on the look out for new members. You don't have to be at every meeting or event, just come along when you can. We love being members of FROGS as we feel we're helping to make a difference for our children and Greatwood school.

'I feel happy because we have lots of things to play on'

 

'The playground looks very colourful and bright'

 

'We can do some maths on the 100 square'

 

 

We raised a fantastic £147 at the FROGs bun sale. Thank you to everybody who helped, donated cakes and/or bought cakes.
We have raised a fantastic £96 from the bag2school collection. Thank you to everybody who donated something!

Sleeping Beauty, Friday 16th January 2015

Thank you to all the FROGS Committee members who helped organise last Friday's visit to Sleeping Beauty at the Muni Theatre, Colne. Everybody had an enjoyable evening of fantastic family fun.

What is FROGS?
FROGS is a group for parents and employees of Greatwood Community Primary School. We hold regular, informal meetings in school and help to organise and run exciting school events. The activities that FROGS organise are not only fantastic fun for the children but raise vital funds for the school which are used to improve facilities and equipment, enhancing your child's experiences. They also raise community spirit within the school.
Getting involved means you get to meet other local parents and build friendships. Parents are welcome to drop into meetings whenever they can.
The events that we run include Christmas and Summer fairs, quiz nights, discos, bingo nights and pyjama parties. We also help with the procession float for Skipton Gala. We are always open to new suggestions for fundraising events.

Thank you to everybody who came and supported our Yulefest Christmas Fair. A lot of hard work and organisation went into this event and it couldn't have happened with out the support of the FROGs members.

Look at the selection of photos to see all of the exciting things that happened. Once we have totalled up the final figure raised we will let you know.

We would like to say a big thank you to everybody who donated prizes and baked cakes. 

The children really enjoyed our spooky Halloween disco. More photos to follow.

Thank you to everybody who supported our bun sale on Friday 17th October. We had an excellent range of baking and the bun sale itself was very well attended and everything was sold!!

We made a fantastic £95! Thank you again to everyone who sent in some baking and/or bought cakes. It really is appreciated.

Pantomime Trip - January 2015
We have had a fantastic response to the Pantomime trip that will be happening in January. All tickets have now been allocated and an invoice will be sent out with the amount due to those who have booked tickets.
