With a little help from our Friends (of Clayesmore)
The AGM of the Friends of Clayesmore is a great opportunity to reflect on a year of great events, and grants made to help provide the icing on the cake for pupils. In her review of the year retiring Chair, Denise Cook, thanked the committee for their work at the Clayshoot, Christmas Market, Quiz Night, Sports Day and Cafe Evening, which together had raised £5,000 in funds. This money, coupled with that raised in previous years enabled the Friends to fund a number of projects for senior school pupils, including a makeover of the backstage area in the school theatre, outdoor furniture, kit bags for sports tours, equipment for use by MUN and the biennial ‘House Grant’ which allows houseparents and pupils to choose items they want. In 2015 these House Grants funded BBQs and outside games tables. The Friends have also allocated money to be used to complete the refurbishment of the ensemble room in the Music School, which will hopefully take place in October half term.
