Friends of The Polygon School
The Friends of The Polygon School is a formally constituted group of volunteers that raise funds to support activities that enhance the pupils’ education and development. Monies raised by the Friends have supported a wide range of events held at the school over the last 4 years, such as our summer music day which welcomes people from our community into the school and provides an opportunity for pupils to both listen to and perform music. We have funded complementary therapies such as hand and head massages for pupils and their families. The Friends also raised funds to contribute to the pupils’ trip to Iceland in 2012.
Pupils and staff are encouraged to present ideas for fund raising activities to The Friends, and to participate in a varied annual calendar of fundraising events which include our famous annual quiz night (usually held each January), community open days, summer fairs, and St. George's Day celebrations. These events are designed to be enjoyable for our pupils and also enhance their experience of school life.
The Friends have been supporting The Polygon for over 10 years and welcome new members from the wider community. Since 2012, students from Solent and Southampton Universities have contributed new fundraising ideas and event management. In 2015 The Friends welcomed many new members from the Southampton Community and are planning an exciting set of fund raising events for 2016. Members can take part in a way that suits them, from helping generate ideas to running events.
If you are interested in joining the Friends or have a fundraising idea please contact their chairperson Kim Hailstone at email@example.com
