Offley Endowed Primary are always looking at ways to provide more exciting curriculum and extra curricular things for the children to do. With shrinking Government support and budgets, we rely more and more on the generosity of our parents and the local community to help with projects around the school. The Offley School Association do an amazing job of helping to raise funds and we were indebted to their support in obtaining the fantastic playground equipment in 2017.
We are currently trying to raise funds for a school minibus and also to improve our outdoor area for our younger children. Any help in any fundraising matters is always greatly appreciated.
We are getting closer and closer to raising the funds for Offley to buy our very own minibus. The OSA (Offley School Association) are hoping to raise at least £5000 with the school contributing the rest, using some of our Sports Premium money. We have to also pay for the tax, insurance, sign writing and for teachers to pass the Herts Minibus test, before we are safe to take the children out. See below for our new Crowdfunding appeal organised by Offley School Association to help get us over the line. I am hopeful that the bus will be with us by the Easter break so that it is ready to be used plenty of times in the summer term.
Many thanks for everybody in helping the school fund this project and for some very generous individual donations. The ‘Burns supper’ in the village hall was a great community event and we were very grateful for their kind donation towards the minibus appeal.
If you would like to help out with any fundraising events; please talk to the OSA or me.
Many many thanks for your continued support.
