Friends of Gainsborough School
The FrOGS (Friends of Gainsborough) is a parent and teacher association crucial to the successful running of the school.
FroGS (Friends of Gainsborough School) is your Parent Teacher Association. We organise a number of events and our primary focus is to work alongside the school providing our children with a fabulous, fun school life. We meet every Tuesday morning between 09:00 – 10:00 am. Parents have got involved for different reasons but all feel that it is a great experience.
It’s a nice way to get to know what is going on in your child’s school – Mandy
Parental involvement has a positive impact on attainment for our children, it also empowers parents, and helps to develop a sense of community. – Ms Carol Lewis, Family Liaison Officer
As a grandparent it is nice to see how things are done differently from when my son came to school and it’s nice to now have an input into what my Grandchildren are doing at school. – Kath (grandmother)
The PTA are currently focussing our fundraising efforts towards the development of a parent’s room which would be part of the new proposed school playground. So far we have raised funds through the following events:
- Halloween disco
- When I grow up disco
- Winter celebration
- Summer Fair
We would love more Parents to become actively involved. If you are interested in joining the schools PTA, or you would like to find out more, please contact the PTA via email on: FPTA@gainsborough.hackney.sch.uk.
