The Friends of Eldon
We are the friends of Eldon Primary School!
We hold a weekly Social Gathering event every Tuesday mornings at 9am-10am at Eldon House!
In 'normal times' it is a time for us to get together and contribute to making some of our big decisions that affect our children, this may be from Halloween disco’s/fundraising events/projects within school and many more.
Currently, we organise free food parcels for our Eldon families and community! The uptake is high during these difficult times.
September 2022 brings with it a renewed focus and energy. We are determined to continue the great work with our families and community!
The Friends of Eldon also help around school listening to pupils reading, assisting on trips, helping children with projects etc.
If you feel this is something you would like to be part of then please chat to Mrs Butt or Mrs Slater and come along to our next meeting and enjoy a cup of tea or coffee. We are looking forward to meeting you all very soon!
Our Friends of Eldon have co-ordinated so many whole school events this term including:
MacMillan Coffee Afternoon and our Halloween Disco! The next event for December 2022 is our annual Christmas Fair! We can’t wait!
Our annual Summer Fair raised £1000 in July 2022! Well done and thank you, everyone!
