Friends of Brookside
The following events are coming up so please make a note in your diaries!! The FoB are currently raising money for new playground equipment and you can keep track on how well this is going by checking out the 'totalizer' outside the school on the wall. Please also consider joining the committee, it is only for a few hours each term and the support from family and friends is vital in determining the future of the FoB. Thank you.

Whether you have been with the school for some time or have little ones in the Childrens Centre or in Early Years, it's time to get involved! Friends of Brookside is a charity, established purely to enhance the educational experience of our children. We run fun events such as Barn Dances, Pamper Evenings, Cake sales, Easter events, Summer/Christmas fairs and many more.
These raise funds to subsidise various activities organised by the school. Regular contributions are made to schools trips, equipment and even the school crossing staff. Larger 'one-off' projects include the landscaping at the rear of the school and the new school Minibus.
You can find more information at the bottom of this page. If you want to offer your time, however little, please contact a committee member (see 'Meet the Committee' below), come to the next meeting or join and post on our Facebook group!
Friends of Brookside are now on Facebook!
