Friends of Manorside

Dear Parent/Guardian,

Welcome to Manorside and the start of a new school year. And welcome to the Friends of Manorside (FOM). Any parent/carer can get involved with Friends of Manorside – it is open to everyone at the school. Friends of Manorside organise fund-raising activities for the school and the money raised from these activities goes towards:

  • Library resources
  • School trips
  • Games for classrooms
  • Equipment for school shows

To do this, we need your support. As parents and carers, you are automatically part of Friends of Manorside and we are keen for you to join in. We meet in a very informal way approximately once a term and we also run an active email group. We want to be able to keep funding these trips and resources for the children, and that’s why we need you. We need people to help out with these events in any way you can, and it’s a great way to meet people and become involved in the life of the school. Helping out usually involves tasks such as setting up and clearing up the events, contributing cakes / food, staffing a stall. We know that everyone is busy with work and family life and we manage to run the events because lots of parents/carers each give a small amount of time. The Friends of Manorside events this year are:

  • Wednesday November 2nd - Autumn Disco
  • Saturday November 26th - Quiz night (adults only)
  • Wednesday December 14th - Santa’s grotto
  • Movie nights
    • February 8th  - KS 2  
    • February 22nd  - KS1 
  • July 1st - International Food Fair

We welcome any skills you can bring to help out and especially need: electrics; sound; lighting; face-painting and henna decorating. Any ideas about different events are also very welcome.

One of the parents will coordinate each event, and send out requests and details via the email list. If you are not on the email list, please either:

  • Email Dani – mum of Leo and Jay at
  • Search for Manorsidepandt on Google Groups
  • Fill in the tear off form over the page
  • Contact the following people in your children’s classes (over the page)
