The Story

With the budget cuts for schools and the cost of living crisis, Friends of Rathfern's contributions are increasingly moving away from "fun extras" to vital funds used to supplement school budget gaps. For example, we recently purchased handwriting books for every pupil, a basic need that the school was unable to cover. While most of our critical funds are raised through fun school events such as fairs and bake sales, we felt having an ongoing platform where Rathfern community members could contribute would be an efficient and convenient way to keep our funds growing and our children's experiences thriving. We will always welcome general donations to Friends of Rathfern- these keep us agile and able to respond to requests that need a quick turn around. Sometimes we will also launch special appeals to match pressing needs or for specific goals. With budget cuts and rising costs we need your support now more than ever. Join us to ensure that all our children receive the education and opportunities they deserve!

Friends of Rathfern

Friends of Rathfern is a voluntary group of parents, carers, and staff working together to build and nurture the school community. We organise exciting events throughout the year to raise funds to support our pupils’ education and well-being, as well as strengthening links with the local community. We support our children's scholastic experiences by helping fund class trips, school supplies, sports gear, and other needs as they arise.
