The FROGS Team are busy planning future events so please keep watching this page!
Dear Parents and carers,
Although lockdown is beginning to ease, we are still in uncertain times and we hope you are coping with the current situation and managing to keep safe and well.
It is now clear that our planned FROGS events are unlikely to go ahead this school year, which means no quiz, fun run or summer fair. We are sad that we will be unable to organise these, which are always a lot of fun for the children and help to bring us together as a school community. Unfortunately it also means that Goldfield will miss out on any funds raised, which are gratefully received by the school and used to help create such a fun-filled school life for our children.
As we can’t raise funds in the traditional way or get together for our usual events, we will be setting fun challenges, competitions and games via the Frogs Facebook and Instagram pages. We aim to provide different ideas of simple activities for your children to do. We hope these will be helpful for you and enjoyable for your children. There is absolutely no obligation to take part, we understand that many people are overwhelmed by attempting to home school, work from home and generally survive with their sanity intact! They are just another resource that may help if you are looking for ways to entertain your children and will serve as a way of keeping contact in the school community. It can be easy to feel isolated in the present circumstances.
We will be kicking off with a ‘guess the Goldfield staff member from their baby photo’ competition. The winner will win a bottle of Prosecco ;o)
In addition we are in the process of setting up a Just Giving page for Goldfield FROGS. When it is complete we will send out the details. We understand that many people are suffering economically at the moment, and of course there is absolutely no obligation at all to donate. It is just a way for anybody who would like to show support to give money in a safe way, directly to FROGS, as we are a registered charity. If any of you are able to help, we will of course be extremely grateful, it will be difficult for the school to manage without the usual FROGS contribution, which averages at approximately £12000 per year. As a community we have raised £5163 so far this academic year.
Keep an eye on the facebook group (Goldfield School Parents & Carers) and Instagram page (@goldfieldfrogs) for the Baby photo competition coming soon :o)
Look after yourselves and see you soon!
