KFC Sponsored Swim 6.5.17


KFC organised a sponsored swim on Saturday 7th May 2017.  The children had lots of fun swimming lengths and breadths and then ate yummy cakes that Miss Boddie and Vanessa (Graces's Mum) had baked!  Great fun had by all!

Kelbrook Friends Committee

Our PTA is known as ‘Kelbrook Friends Committee’ so that we can include everyone with an association to our School - parents, guardians, grandparents, staff, voluntary helpers, teachers, parents of school leavers etc. We feel that school should be at the heart of the community and hope that we respresent this. 

We have a Committee of 13 regular members:

Chair - Rachel Pearson (Mum to John in Class 4)

Vice Chair - Joanne Kitson ( Mum to Ava in Class 4 and Erin in Class 3)

Secretary - Angela Dugdale

Treasurer - Amanda Morgan (Mum to Beth and Hollie in Class 3)

Plus Christine Townson as school representatives.

We would also like to thank our other regular volunteers - Laura Robinson, Faye Strickland, Christine Elley, Karen Taylor, Clare Bown, Helen Sutcliffe, Andy Drummond, Nok Rushton, Christine Gascoigne, Jaki Charlton and all the teachers and Father Christmas for their continued support.  However, you do not need to be a committee member to help run a stall at an event, provide a raffle prize, help with refreshments, make suggestions for fundraising activities etc. The school benefits financially and socially from all your efforts, which are greatly appreciated.

We are very grateful to Clare and Stephen Bown, Select Auto Bodies (parents of Ollie Class 3) who very generously match fund our school discos doubling the amount raised.

Funds raised by Kelbrook Friends Committee are used to enhance the school environment for your child, and in turn we would love you to get involved with our activities. The current financial climate makes fundraising for school more important than ever.

So far in the academic year 2017/2018 KFC have funded/organised:

  • Continued to purchase class novels termly for classes 3 and 4 linked to our topics
  • Subsidised Class 1 school trip to Lytham St Annes (Summer 2018)
  • Subsidised Class 2 school trip to Lytham St Annes (Summer 2018)
  • Subsidised Class 3 school trip to the Sea Life Centre in Blackpool (Summer 2018)
  • Subsidised Class 4 school trip to Ski Rossendale (Summer 2018)
  • Christmas Fair & Summer Fair
  • Halloween, Valentines, Christmas, Easter and Leavers Disco 
  • Non uniform days

During 2017-2018 Christine Elley very kindley organised two events at Kelbrook Village Hall for KFC.  The first event was a comedy night which raised £370.60 and the second event was a Soul Night Disco raised £175.00.  She is hoping to organise more events in 2018-2019.

Dates and times for meeting and events are detailed below.  Reminders of events, meetings and other news are usually sent out on the school app included in the School Newsletter, on the notice board or on the website. If you would like to contact the KFC by email please use the email link below.  The AGM took place on the 4th February 2019. If you would like to get involved or have suggestions for fundraising events or how the money raised should be spent please catch us in the playground or come to one of our meetings. As a volunteer member you are not obliged to attend every meeting.
