Friends of High Firs

Friends of High Firs (FHF)

All parents & staff are automatically members of the Friends of High Firs School Association but the Association is open to anyone with an interest in the school. The Association is run by a committee, elected at the Annual General Meeting. The committee arrange many social and fund raising events for the children and their interest and support is a valued part of the school organisation – all their hard work on behalf of the children is very much appreciated. The money raised from their fundraising activities has gone towards providing many extra items for the children, as well as funding major projects around the school.  All help and support is much appreciated and everyone is welcome to support our work!  More information about our activities is in the Annual Report below.

Our AGM this year was delayed by the restrictions necessitated by Covid-19 precautions but as these now begin to lift we are looking forward to being able to return to Friends events later in the year – albeit perhaps in a different form!  We are therefore pleased to confirm the following:
