Working together for the children of Roseberry Academy

26 09 2015

Roseberry Academy Friends and Teachers (RAFT) is a group of parents, staff and friends who work together for the benefit of every child within the Roseberry family.

We have a committee which plans events and activities and a great group of people who volunteer their time as and when they can. We understand that people lead busy lives and so are grateful for any time that people can spare to help us!

Throughout each year, we arrange fun activities for children and families. These include family bingo, discos, film nights, cake stalls, sponsored zumbathons and a superb summer fair for the whole community to enjoy, to name but a few!

We are a non profit making organisation and so all of the money we raise goes back to the children. We have just raised enough money, with a very generous donation from Thompson’s school of ballet, to buy a brand new stage for our school hall! We also provide enrichment funds for staff to spend on activities, resources and events which enhance the curriculum. This money is often used to subsidise visits so that the voluntary financial contributions requested from parents is kept to a minimum.

If you want to know more about RAFT, wish to join the committee or come along to help at events, please get in touch via our Facebook page or leave a message for us in the school office and we’ll get back to you. All parents are automatically members of RAFT when their children join the school – welcome aboard!
