Welcome to the Friends of Galley Common (FOGC) section.

The school is very fortunate to have the Friends of Galley Common, a wonderful group of volunteers who give up their time to support the school and our community. The main purpose of the Friends of Galley Common is to arrange school community events, for fundraising, which bring together parents, staff, pupils and the community for a number of fun activities. 

Thanks to the support of our families and local community, the Friends of Galley Common are able to raise funds for projects which significantly enhance the school experience but which would otherwise have to wait until the necessary funds were available or not happen at all. Requests for expenditure are made at the meetings, and approved or rejected after discussion.

Events Include:

Christmas and Summer Fayres

Easter Bingo

Termly Discos

Termly Film Nights

Money raised has supported the following projects:

Christmas Pantomime

School Website

Reading Books

Year 2 gifts and awards

... and lots more.

Reasons to get involved...

  1. The Friends of Galley Common is one of the best ways of getting to know people and forming new friendships within the school. It is so easy when you are all mucking in together and either having a good laugh or a good panic!
  2. There is no pressure to get heavily involved. You can help a little, or help a lot. You can volunteer to organise the whole raffle or just to fold the tickets, run the whole fair or man a stall, entirely up to you.
  3. Being involved in the Friends, in either a small or a large way, is a fabulous opportunity to put your skills and hobbies to good use, or even better still, learn new skills.
  4. The meetings are not too often, not too long, not obligatory, and not at all formal.

If you are interested in supporting the Friends of Galley Common please contact the school office.  Meetings are advertised in our school newsletters.
