Friends of Bidbury Infant School
Although the school is funded by Hampshire Education Authority we depend upon fund-raising activities throughout the year. These are planned and promoted by our active parents association – The Friends of Bidbury Infant School. Not only do they raise funds for extra resources, equipment and fun activities, but their regular meetings provide an opportunity for parents to socialise. The Friends' Committee has a Chair, Treasurer and Secretary and always welcomes new members or parents who just like to help at functions. More information is available from the school office and in newsletters sent out by The Friends
We have a very active group who support the school in a range of ways. We plan seasonal fairs to raise money for the children and regularly purchase new equipment for them. This year three new playground wall games have been chosen by the School Council and paid for by the Friends. Social events are also organised and the children went to the local 'Playzone' after school to have fun together. Other events that have been organised include film nights, and entertainers. The friends are currently raising money to purchase new scooter and bike racks.
