A huge welcome from everyone at the Friends of Overchurch Infant School
We are a group of teachers, friends and parents of children attending the infant school and first set ourselves up in 2022; we work together to put on some great family friendly events to help raise money for the school and the benefit of all our children.
We will organise a variety of activities throughout the school year for everyone to enjoy such as Bake sales, Summer and Christmas Fairs, discos and so much more. All our events are geared towards supporting the school and providing additional funding to provide additional equipment and resources to enhance the school’s learning environments and opportunities. We also fund extra treats for the school too including trips offsite, transport and children’s entertainers etc.
We try to meet up at least once a month for our ‘Planning and Prepping’ sessions; where we chat about upcoming events, discuss new ideas or put together fun packs etc that we might be using (such as our sunflower competition kits!).
This is an informal meeting where everyone is welcome; we are a ‘Friends of’ group so you don’t have to have a child attending our school, grandparents are also welcome or local businesses too!
We will always welcome new people and fresh ideas; we promise to bring the giggles, good friendship and fun! Our meet ups take place at the school, in a local community room at Tesco Bidston and occasionally at the pub too!
We also really need the help of volunteers for our events, this makes them a huge success and enjoyable for all. Joining us is also a great way of meeting new people, making new friends and community spirit!
