The “Friends” of Threshfield are a group of parents who meet up, in the afternoons at school once a term, to organise fundraising and social activities for us. These events are well supported and help to provide extras resources for the school and bond our school community together. Their efforts are very much appreciated and vitally important!
All parents are welcome to attend.
The money raised have paid for new reading books, dictionaries, a Viking Day to tie in with the topic for the term, as well as outdoor equipment, wellies and aprons. The pupils also enjoyed a trip to the Pantomime before Christmas all paid for by Friends. Social activities range from the Treasure Hunt, the Safari Supper, Children’s Bingo, Film nights, the School Ball, 80's disco, on-line auction and the Curry & Quiz night. The recent coffee morning at Church House, Grassington was a great success - thank you to everyone involved.
