North Walsham Junior,Infant School and Nursery Federation

Friends

Welcome to the Friends section of our website.

The main objective of the school Parent/Teacher Association (PTA)/ Friends' association is to raise funds to advance the education of our pupils by providing, and/or assisting in the provision of equipment and experiences that extend and enrich learning.  We have over the years paid for new play equipment, school trips, author visits, subsidised coaches and Santa presents for all of Infants at Christmas.

 

We have a wide range of regular events such as cake sales, discos, fairs and mufti days.

 

Events are publicized through newsletters and on our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/FriendsofNorthwalshamjuniorinfantandnurseryschools
