Welcome toGhost Hill Infant & Nursery School

The Friends

Friends Of Ghost Hill

 

Friends of Ghost Hill (FOGH) is a charity made up of parents who organise events and activities to raise funds which benefit all children at the school. We’re all volunteers, so every penny we raise provides much needed funding for the school

 

In recent years, the Friends have provided the funding for the following, the ‘no-mow’ in the Reception playground, several outdoor benches and tables, performing arts and theatre shows for the children, new technology and books, new dining room equipment, and a refresh of the playground markings outside Nursery – plus lots more too!

 

Each year we organise a wide variety of fund raising events:

 

  • We hold discos in Taverham Village Hall at Halloween and Valentine’s which are packed full of fun and games
  • We hold a Christmas Bazaar in the school hall, complete with a grotto where children can visit Father Christmas and receive a gift.
  • At Easter we organise themed colouring competitions and treasure hunts around the school grounds.
  • Each May we hold our Sponsored Wheelie. It’s one of our biggest fundraisers, and the children have a great time completing a themed obstacle course on their bikes or scooters.
  • Every June we hold our annual Summer Fete - this takes place on the school playing fields and we have lots of stalls including tombolas, tuck shop, face painting, hook-a-duck and lots of other games. This year we also had two bouncy castles, an ice-cream van, a beer tent, and music provided by Taverham Band. Our BBQ was manned by Taverham Lions and they generously donated all the BBQ profits to the Friends. There’s an amazing raffle with prizes donated from lots of generous local businesses. It’s a lovely family and event and is hugely supported by the local community.

 

…and we run even more fundraisers including: bingo evenings, our own lottery, we collect unwanted clothing through ‘Bags2School’, we sell Spree Books, the children make their own Christmas cards and end of year personalised gifts, and we collect supermarket vouchers.

 

As you can see from the list above we’re a busy committee and we’re always looking for new members to join us!

 

Being part of the Friends can be as big or as small a role as you want it to be. There are lots of small, but essential jobs such as counting supermarket vouchers, manning stalls, making cakes, through to something larger such as taking an officer role on the committee.

 

If you’re interested in joining the Friends, please contact us by email at FriendsOfGhostHill@gmail.com, through your class rep, or through the school office. Hope to see you soon!

 

 

 

Sponsored Wheely Event

 

The Friends organised an obstacle course on the main school playground for the children to take part in on their bikes and scooters.

It was a fun event! As well as a fun event, the children were also raising money for the school.

 

 

 

 

African Drummers

 

The Friends funded an African Drumming experience for children in reception, year 1 and year 2. It was rather loud but absolutely mesmerised the children. It enabled the children to experience something exciting and broaden their skills and knowledge.

 

"It was new and different and I really enjoyed it." Ava

"We all played really good rhythms." Charlie

"The drum skin was made of leather." Sam

"I liked feeling the vibrations on my hands." Finley

"I like doing the drums because it made a loud noise!" Ella

 

 

 

 

Halloween Fundraiser

 

Children across the school had a non school uniform day with a halloween theme. We were raising money towards resources for the school. The children also entered a carve your own pumpkin competition. Well done to our four winners!
