The Friends of Davenhill
The Friends held their Annual General Meeting on Tuesday 4th October and elected a new committee for the forthcoming school year.
As a Registered Charity (No; 701569) we are governed by the rules of the Charity Commission which deems our committee must be elected and minutes must be taken at all our meetings. Over the last year thanks to money recuperated and events we held we were able to purchased outdoor equipment for Nursery and Ipads for use throughout the school. It has also allowed us to make a contribution towards the costs of transport for school trips, which we hope you will benefit from. Our end of year accounts are forwarded to the Charity Commission and as per their regs anyone who would like a copy of these must submit a written request to FoDs and there may be an appropriate charge.
Our constitution states that we can only fund extra resources, projects and initiatives that are of an educational nature and/or linked to the curriculum.
We were very pleased that the AGM was attended by several new parents who agreed to help us out on a regular basis and we extend a warm welcome to them and other parents who have expressed an interest is assisting the Friends. We would also like to invite any other parents who were unable to attend the AGM but are interested in being involved in helping to contribute to their childs time at school to get in touch either via the school office or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
