'Friends of Howard Primary' aim to support the school in a variety of ways, enhancing the children's daily experience. Every parent automatically becomes a member and is encouraged to get involved in whatever way they can. Fundraising is a large part of the role of 'Friends' and this has been hugely successful in recent years. Playground markings, a pagoda, and ten iPads are just a few items purchased with the money raised.
Just as importantly, 'Friends' also work hard to create extra special memories for the children that will stay with them into adulthood. Discos, fetes and chocolate bingo are all firms favourites with the children. Being actively involved fosters a close relationship between the parents and the staff, who together, can achieve wonderful things.
