Friends and Volunteers

We have a willing and loyal group of parents (and grandparents!) who support our school as volunteers, with reading 1-1 and in groups, with art or drama activities or helping to put together Christmas parties or a masked ball for fun and fundraising.  A more organised group, Friends of Honeybourne, is run by a super group of willing parents who give up their time to put on social and fund raising events to support our school.   Our most recent project was to provide the school with 30 new Chrome Books, to complement our ICT programme!  We are always looking for new members to help and support so please let us know if you are interested.
