The Friends of Hillside Avenue (The Friends) aim to support the work of Hillside Avenue Primary and Nursery School in Thorpe St Andrew, Norwich and to foster good relationships between all individuals and bodies connected with the school. The Friends arrange events, raise funds and support the school in many other ways and our website helps us to promote those activities.
The Friends organise many fundraising events throughout the year. We are involved in a variety of ways from supplying school uniform, organising the Summer Fete and the Christmas Fayre and running the photograph sessions. Whether the events are in school time or out of hours, the staff and committee do this on a voluntary basis. Together with the parents and carers that join in these events they help raise vital funds for the school whilst offering additional activities for the children, parents and carers.
The money raised is used for many things including funding classroom play equipment for wet playtimes, sports equipment, contribution towards school trips and books. In 2012 we made a significant contribution towards the refurbishment of the boys toilet block and more recently helped the school to help fund refurbishment of the school library.
The Friends of Hillside are members of the NCPTA, they provide a full range of support services from fundraising ideas to Health & Safety guidance. In association with this organisation is PTALocal which brings you some great vouchers for top visitor attractions, holidays and other venues. Registration is required
