Sponsorship Form 2019

Colour Run parent information sheet 2019

The children will be completing a colour run around the school grounds, which involves them tackling obstacles and running through clouds of paint powder!!

This is a fantastic fun event and all parents are welcome to come and support their children, or better still, volunteer!!

We need a number of parent helpers to ensure the afternoon runs smoothly. There are a number of jobs from paint throwing and marshalling to less messy things like serving refreshments or helping sign people in. 

We can’t do it without your help so if you are planning on coming to watch, why not help out- You’ll get the best view of the action!

PLEASE REMEMBER THAT YOUR CHILD WILL ONLY BE ABLE TO GO THROUGH THE COLOUR STATIONS WHERE THE PAINT WILL BE THROWN IF YOU HAVE OPTED IN ON SIMS PAY- If you do not OPT IN your child will still be able to do the run but will not go into the colour stations.

Please click on the below links if you would like to know more about the paint powder we are using

Welcome to The Friends of Bowsland Green page

Here you can see all the amazing things the “Friends” do for the school, and also find out what exciting events are coming up.

Why do the school have a “Friends”?

We are a registered charity and our main aim is to raise funds and provide enrichment activities for the children that would not be feasible within the current school budget. We are very fortunate to have a committee of parents that volunteer their time to help plan and run events which not only raise money but also engage the school community and bring children and their families together.

What do we do?

Throughout the year we run a number of events and fundraising activities to raise money. However, it is not just about the money! We are passionate about being able to use that money to fund experiences for the children, such as the recent Science Day, Medieval Feasts, or something fund like a movie night or disco.  We meet about once a month to discuss what the school may need from us and how we can achieve it with minimal cost, but also how we can raising those funds enjoyable. Our meetings are open to everyone, so please check out our Facebook page or email us FOBowslandgreen@gmail.com if you’d like details of when the next one is.

Who are we?

Emma Moore- Chairperson
Rhian Woodman- Treasurer
Amy- Secretary
Dawn Russell- Committee Member
Steve Marshall- Committee Member

We also have a number of people who come to meetings and offer to help when they can. This is always very welcome”Many hands make light work”, as the saying goes!
