Friends of Thirsk Community Primary School

All parents belong to Friends of Thirsk CP School (FOTCPS). Through this organisation, parents and members of the community actively support the school by raising money to provide facilities and equipment which enhance the children's education as well as staging social events for families to enjoy.

This year we are looking at raising vital funds for 11 interactive smart boards. The smart boards are used every day, the current ones are between 10 and 15 years old and the graphics are now outdated which impacts on how they are used in the classroom. One smart board costs £3,000.
We are also looking at raising funds to update the playground, new items to play with, markings and more.
These are all large fundraising projects which will be our focus for the foreseeable future.
