St Michael's Woolmer GreenVA C of E School
'Shine as Lights in the World'
Hello and Welcome to the Friends!
We have lots of ideas for the year; please check out our Facebook page for the latest information.
Fingers crossed for a playground transformation
We’ve entered in the Fun & Active Playgrounds competition and are in with a chance of winning a playground transformation worth £3000 in time for the new academic year! We’re crossing our fingers as the Silver Sports Package includes 6 bright and colourful playground markings that encourage physical play and activity. With a Netball Court, Dance With Me, Active Trail, Jump Game, Dartboard and 4-Way Hopscotch – the range of markings can be used to enhance breaktimes and PE lessons!

We are a lively, friendly charity group called the “Friends of St Michael's Woolmer Green School”, which is like the traditional PTA, with the objective of raising money for the school, whilst having fun creating community events and bringing people together.
We are always keen to welcome new ‘Friends’, so if you are interested in joining us and helping to make a better experience for the children, please contact any of the committee or let the school office know. Hope to see you soon!

Egg Painting Competition
Our last event, during lockdown, was an Egg decorating competition.
The winners were:
1st = Eggspress
2nd = Space
3rd = DJ
All our entries are shown below too. We also allowed painted stone 'eggs' due to the shortage of eggs in the shops.
Friday Cake Sales
Each class takes it in turn to produce and sell cakes to the rest of the school. These are sold each week, after school on a Friday.
Sycamore class - £191.07
Willow class - £128.80
Cherry class - £147.83
TOTAL = £467.70!
Sadly this is when the schools were closed for the Coronavirus, so no further sales occurred
Class Wish Lists
Each class was asked to think of some items that their class would love - up to a value of £100. The Friends then purchased this lovely pile of gifts and handed them out to the classes in their assembly.
What a great night!
Everyone had a great night trying to keep the school staff / governors out of the lead but sadly they just managed to scrape a win in the end!! We can't let this happen again next year
Thanks to our brilliant Quiz masters; Phil and Grant for keeping us entertained and putting on the great quiz.
The Winter Wonderland was a fantastic success! Thank you to everyone who helped out, donated and came to spend your money on the great event - it was a brilliant team effort.
The event raised nearly £2000 - an incredible total!
