Friends@Belmont are a small group of Belmont parents/carers who organise fun events for Belmont pupils and their families.
We meet approximately once a month at the school to discuss and plan events – and to have a chat and a cup of tea. Parents/carers are notified of dates of meetings by flyers in pupils’ school bags (and on the school website).
We would love to welcome some new members, so please come along if you would like to join us.
If you would like any more information about the group, please contact Sarah, F@B secretary (and Tilly’s mum) via our website contact page or the school office on 01242 216180.
Friends@Belmont PTA are now a registered charity. This will help greatly with our fund-raising activities, as it makes it easier for us to get funding or other donations (such as raffle prizes) from charitable organisations. The school are also able to use the PTA charity registration to apply for funding for things which their budget wouldn’t otherwise stretch to – such as extra sports and playground equipment. F@B have recently donated £200 to the school for toys for the primary playground and £100 for books for the secondary library, from our fund-raising activities last year.
F@B’s biggest fund-raising event this year will be the Summer Fayre, which we will be holding jointly with Bettridge School on Saturday 17th June 12.00pm -3.00pm. This event will also be the ‘grand opening’ of the new Bettridge VI form centre and will be held on the Bettridge school site.
It will be a fun-packed event with stalls and games, a hog-roast and cake stall, pony rides and live music and lots lots more… A surprise celebrity guest will be opening the Fayre and Local MP Alex Chalk has agreed to officially open the new VI form centre.
We hope to raise at least £1,000 for Belmont, which will go towards some new play equipment for the primary school playground. So please come along and bring friends, family, neighbours, and anyone else who might enjoy it!
We’re also holding a balloon race so make sure you get you’re entries in by Monday 12th June 2017 !
NEXT EVENT: Bettridge & Belmont Schools’Summer Fayre – Saturday 17th June 2017 – 12.00pm – 3.00pm at Bettridge School, Warden Hill Road, Cheltenham. All vehicles to be parked at Belmont School or off site.
Thanks to staff, parents and carers and governors for their ongoing support to make our school such an outstanding one!
