Helping Hands of Rosa Street

Helping Hands of Rosa Street are a group of volunteers who raise funds to support our School. Their fundraising efforts are greatly appreciated. They also volunteer in school to help children with their reading, support classroom staff with practical tasks and help walk children to special events.

Current committee members are:

  • Kate Tarling (Chair)
  • Lynda Kelley (Treasurer)
  • Alex Woodward (Secretary)
  • Joanne Wakes
  • Margaret Lowther
  • Lynsay McIvor


We also have many other parents who lend a hand when they are able but cannot always attend meetings.


Fundraising this year

Over the past academic year, money has been raised at various events in school from discos to selling calendars to selling refreshments at school events. So far, some of this money has paid for: the children to watch a pantomime in school; a washing machine so that school can wash sports kits, dressing up and lost property; PE kits for our new Reception children and will be going towards the purchase of display boards for each class.
