The Friends of Portfield School is a registered charity set up and run by parents, carers, grandparents, school staff or indeed anyone wanting to help the pupils of Portfield School to achieve their potential.
Over the past few years we’ve raised money for an Integrex Interactive Projector, Outdoor Gym Equipment, a Nest Swing, software for Eyegaze, play equipment in the newly refurbished Lower School play area, a wheelchair swing and wet weather gear for Upper and Lower Schools. We’ve also had a family day out at Folly Farm and provided funds for the Drama Group and the Leavers’ Prom.
We have many events during the year such as our annual Family Fun Day, which is our main fundraiser held during the Summer, and thanks to the generosity of local businesses, we’ve had some brilliant prizes, such as aeroplane and helicopter rides and family tickets to Ireland on Stena Line. The ‘Big Bike Bash’ is another great event, as is our Christmas carol singing at Tesco. We also have a termly Bingo evening which is held at Haverfordwest Cricket Club.
Our aim is to help raise funds to purchase equipment that the pupils may not get otherwise. If you’d like to join the Friends, why not come along to one of our meetings? We’d love to see you – new faces are always welcome. If you would like to know more, please call Chairperson, Colin Booker on 07511 801820 or Sam Harries on 01437 762701.
Every time you shop online with over 360 of the UKs top online stores you could be giving a free cash donation to our School. It doesn’t cost you any more and you don’t have to buy anything you wouldn’t normally buy. Lets not miss out!
