Friends of Harewood are a group of volunteer parents and grandparents of children at Harewood Junior School, who work hard to run family and children’s events throughout the year. Many of their activities are used to raise much-needed additional money for school, to provide extra equipment which will enhance the children’s learning and experience of school.
A friendly bunch of volunteers who meet every couple of months after school, they are always looking for more volunteers to get involved and help make events even bigger and better! They need a range of skills, from serving refreshments and running stalls, to admin, design and organising. If you’re interested in getting involved, please leave your contacts with the school office.

Provide class subsidies towards a trip for each class (which would be too expensive otherwise)
