What is FROGS?
(Friends And Relatives Of Greave School)
Parent involvement is essential for a successful PTA – and at Greave Primary School, we are lucky enough to have a buzzing community of parents, relatives and friends who contribute to making fund raising events at school great fun - and hugely successful!
Unlike other PTA’s, we are all about relationships, and to us, a PTA is just too official, so in 2012, we decided to rename the PTA to FROGS.
FROGS is not just a board of a few select parents - all parents and relatives of children in Greave Primary School, automatically become a member, therefore everyone's input is incredibly important to it's success.
Alongside this framework we have a small team, mainly acting as Chair, Treasurer and Secretary who oversee and coordinate events such as discos, fairs and all other fundraising activities.
What We Do
In short, we raise money for our school and create memories for our children.
We run events throughout the school year such as the Summer and Christmas fairs, school discos and other small fundraising events throughout the year.
The money raised at these events goes towards benefiting our children and enhancing school resources.
We hold regular meetings to plan these fundraising events and discuss ideas. Our meetings often double as fun social events or get togethers with other FROGS members!, so everyone is welcome!
Details of meetings will be given on the FROGS Facebook page and school newsletters.
